{All Around Latin America} Dominican Chocolate de Agua in Celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month

DSC4478 {All Around Latin America} Dominican Chocolate de Agua in Celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month

Day 2. Dia dos. Sometimes, less is more. In today’s feature, the case is super clear. I really can’t tell you when I first met Clara, or “Aunt (tia) Clara” as she goes by on the interwebs.  I think it was on Facebook about two years ago. Naturally, we hit it off after making the Latin connection. And, I was more interested in her food and culinary approach after I came back from Puerto Plata, DR last summer. Her cooking blog, Dominican Cooking, I feel, has pioneered the food blogging space. She started over a decade ago and has only grown to become well-loved not only because of her passion for sharing her island’s treasures, but as you can see,  because her pictures are just stunning. Makes you want to just to sit and stare until you can’t take it anymore. They’re all so luscious. 

Though I’m still working on recapping and sharing the marvelous 8-day culinary fete I experienced on the northern coast, I invite you to visit Aunt Clara’s blog. You’ll be so glad to have found it. I’m particularly thrilled she’s our feature for today! Enjoy this warm drink, something we’ll be prepping to start enjoying muy pronto!

When Bren invited me to share a Dominican recipe with her readers, my first impulse was to pick one of the best-known ones. But I thought better. While Cuban and Dominican cuisine have a lot in common, not surprisingly, and Bren’s readers will be familiar with it, I decided to choose a simpler recipe. One that her readers will make without having to hunt for exotic ingredients, and an invitation to explore more of our cuisine.
 
Chocolate de agua is part of what I call our “poor man’s cuisine”: a simple, uncomplicated, inexpensive dish that has become one of our comfort foods. As the season of the colder days approach, this will make a perfect drink for breakfasts and afternoon snacks.
