The Dominican Republic is part of an island called Hispaniola and has one land border, which is Hattie. During the late 1700’s Spain cedes Hispaniola to France; however in 1808 the Spaniards took over Santo Domingo following the revolt by Spanish creoles.
The Haitian president Jean-Pierre Boyer and his troops took over Santo Domingo in 1822. The US and the Dominican Republic signed a 50 year treaty, in which the US would take over the Dominicans customs department in return for buying its debt; however in 1924 US forces withdrew. The Dominican Republic today is ruled by Danilo Medina and has a population of almost 10 million people, with a surface area of only 48, 700 sq km. The capital is Santo Domingo and approximately 2.1 million people live there making it the most populated city in the Dominican. The cuisine of the Dominican Republic comes from the influences of different countries and continents, especially African and Spanish. Food History of the Dominican Republic cuisine begins with Christopher Columbus.
Christopher Columbus and the Spaniards arrived on the north coast of an island in 1492. They gave the name to this island La Española or Hispaniola. Food Already there on the island were Taino natives and they lived off a diet of food found from their common habitat, such as corn, tropical fruit and seafood. More Food! Spaniards brought with them many new vegetables, grains, and fruits, as well as animals. In 1509, the arrival of the African slaves has brought even more food variety. A common breakfast in the Dominican Republic may include fruit like passion fruit, mangoes, pineapples, papaya, bananas, zapote, mangu, or jaguar. Mangu is made from mixing taro, cassava and mashed plantains. Pasta is also a very common ingredient to Dominican Republic dishes; spaghetti is referred to "a poor man’s meat." Just like Spain, the Dominican Republic generally has a small breakfast and a light dinner. The lunch is generally larger and is the most important meal of the day. A popular national dish for lunch, addressed as La Bandera resembles the Dominican republic flag, "The white rice and red beans remind people of the flag colors, hence the name". This lunch can be described as a simple plate of rice, beans, and meat, most commonly chicken but can also include fish, pork, or beef along with a salad and side dish" Under the constitution the official religion of the Dominican is Roman Catholic, nevertheless the people of the Dominican have the choice to choose which religion they wish to practice
