KIPE- Its origins are actually middle eastern, who after migrating to the Dominican Republic brought along this wonderful Dominican food with them and it is now part of our culture. Also known as Kibbe or Kibbeh.For the actual ingredients etc Brown crispy outside with the inside filled with meat-ness good-ness-ness sometimes with a hint of spice and sweet in the form of raisins or perhaps olives
Habichuelas con dulce (Sweet cream of beans). It's very rare for my hubby to get homesick, but when he does it's always a food that evokes the good memories. And this apparently is one of those moments, a Dominican 'Easter moment' As a Brit, all I can say is, thank goodness for Aunt Clara!
