    Culture and Sabores Dominicanos Launch the “Gastronomía RD20-20” Proposal
    Santo Domingo, February 24, 2016

    Sabores Dominicanos Foundation and the Ministry of Culture launched their "Gastronomy RD 20-20" proposal, whose goal is to position the national cuisine within the country’s cultural fabric.

    The event, held at Atracciones del Lago, which is located on Ave. Anacaona, was chaired by Juan Tomás García, Deputy Minister of Creativity and Popular Participation, on behalf of Minister José Antonio Rodríguez; Bolívar Troncoso, an expert on ecotourism; Luis Marino López, from the Sabores Dominicanos Consortium, and Juan Febles, from the A & B Master School of Food and Beverages.

    Other public figures, such as Francisco Domínguez Brito, Attorney General of the Republic, and Guarocuya Félix, Director of the Internal Revenue, attended the event.

    In his speech, the Deputy Minister of Culture recalled that since 1997, when the Presidential Council for Culture was created, the need to promote the local cuisine was made apparent.

    However, he highlighted that support and financing for gastronomic proposals has been provided by the administration of singer and song writer José Antonio Rodríguez when it started its Calls for Cultural Projects.

    Among these, he cited the case of the Pineapple Industry and the Gastronomy Mapping Project, as well as the financing of the Traditional Culinary School of Samaná in 2015, and the Dominican Conconete Craft Factory.

    The launching of the www.saboresdominicanos.org.do portal was also announced at the event. It will provide news and educational information on national food, covering aspects such as where and what to eat, literature and other related topics.

    López also addressed the public. He started with a prayer to the Almighty, and by thanking all those who had gathered on site, and also had words of appreciation for the Dominicans and their exquisite food and the cuisine they feature. He thanked each and every one of the institutions that have joined in the task of designing and developing a self-sustainable plan in the coming years to consolidate the Dominican brand of gastronomy, with the participation of all the sectors that are involved in our cuisine.

    It was also recalled that the Ministry of Culture (MINC) and the Sabores Dominicanos Foundation signed an agreement and have worked in organizing and bringing together the various areas related to gastronomy, such as research programs, fairs, work sessions, congresses, seminars and other activities, together with government institutions and the private sector.

    The event was sponsored by Adrián Tropical, the Higüero Restaurant, Vinícola del Norte and Cervecería Dominicana, among others.
