¡El fogoncito en NBC Latino!
Originalmente publicado en NBC Latino:
Who’s blogging: We are Arturo Féliz-Camilo & Zobeira Yamiris Gil Ramos (Arturo & “The Sous Chef”), the husband and wife team behind “El Fogoncito.” We both come from very traditional Dominican families – and if there’s one thing to know about Dominican cuisine, it’s that it is passed down through generations. Arturo’s strengths are everything Dominican with the exception of sweets, baking and desserts, which are precisely Zobeira’s (“The sous chef”) strengths. We compliment each other very well in the kitchen! We met in law school (yes, we are both lawyers, but that’s not as fun as cooking!) and got married after graduation. We have been together for 18 years and married for 12 (this coming November) We have three gorgeous children (“AKA the little chefs”), two girls and a boy ages 7, 5 and 3. They love the kitchen. Little David, our three year old loves to say “Mom, let’s bake a cake!”
Explain your blog name: “El Fogoncito” literally means “the little rustic stove.” In traditional Dominican cookery, rustic stoves – sometimes little more than three or four rocks on top of which you would place a pot – were very common. They were usually fueled by wood, which added to the “countryside style food” flavor. We also blog in English over at DominicanHeat.com, and that title also refers to the welcoming character of Dominican food.
