Get familiar with the platano
No, not the “platano” you’re thinking about. I’m talking about the one that’s served on a platter. This is a good – if not stereotypical – way to start. Learn how to cook, serve and appreciate dishes like mofongo, mangu, platanos fritos, and tostones and you’ll find yourself on her good side in no time. If you’re inept in la cocina then find the best cuchifrito in the barrio to show her that if you can’t make it yourself you’ll pay for the best dishes around whenever she gets hungry. Because you ain’t never seen a Dominican woman star in a Snickers commercial.
