Rossy and her husband were the sweetest couple. Rossy greeted us with homemade hot chocolate from cacao beans from their farm. We then made sancocho, rice and a coconut dessert. one of the husband and boyfriend came and enjoyed visiting with Rossy husband while we cooked. It was a wonderful meal and only wished we had more time with them to learn more. Rossy did say that she would send us recipes, but it would be great to have the recipes pre printed so that we could take home with us as a souvenir. This is definitely one of the high lights of Santo Domingo

The cooking experience with Rossy, Emily and Nelson was the highlight of our trip to the Dominican Republic! We cooked delicious sancocho, we danced merengue and had a lot of fun with this warm and welcoming family. We will recommend Rossy's cooking experience to all of our friends!

Along with a wonderful evening of learning how to make Dominican classics, Rossy and Emily shared their fantastic base sauce that makes all the difference and their great knowledge of Dominican culinary history and culture. When they realized I already knew how to make one thing they'd planned, they made a last minute shift to introduce me to something new! Their generosity, kindness, and love of great food ensured a delightful evening.

We were looking for a truly local experience. Cooking with Rossy and her daughter was exactly that! They made us feel so welcome. They not only shared information about the dishes, but about their family. It felt like joining a new family rather than intruding or observing. The ideal context for learning about a new cuisine. We learned how to make a couple of delicious dishes in the exact way you want a vacation: A hands on experience balanced with a relaxed setting. You are invited to participate as you felt comfortable doing. Cooking is incredibly fun, but eating is even better. You experience a family meal, complete with laughter and a massive food coma. Just as we thought we couldn't eat another bite, they brought out dessert that was too tempting to refuse. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a truly unique and authentic experience!

A wonderful Experience. Rossy and her daughter cooked and prepared the most delicious meal, a true Dominican authentic fresh and tasty meal, followed by a lovely desert and cafecito, the conversation and fellowship was most enjoyable. I highly recommended this experience to those who visit Santo Domingo in the Dominican republic
