On this day in 1844, the Dominican Republic was reported as a sovereign state with the terminating of a cannon heard all through the country. Every February, the nation respects its freedom by praising its dynamic social legacy the entire month with Carnival. The yearly celebrations come full circle toward the month’s end on the country’s Independence Day, a public occasion regarded in the present Doodle.
Freedom Day is set apart with what’s essential to the nation’s center from tuning in to music by nearby craftsmen to appreciating public dishes. Not exactly a stew and not exactly a sauce, a steaming plate of habichuelas guisadas (stewed and prepared red beans) is quite possibly the most widely recognized dinners found on Dominican tables today. Albeit this appetizing dish is no more interesting to suppers whenever of the year, on Independence Day, it has uncommon importance as an agent of Dominican culture and all the flavor that accompanies it.
Glad Independence Day, Dominican Republic!
