The gastronomy of Samaná has great influences from Afro-American immigrants who in search of a peaceful and prosperous life began to arrive en masse to the peninsula from the city of Philadelphia, United States in 1824.
These immigrants brought with them dishes not known in the region and even developed the food that at the time came to be called "Journey Cake" to later be baptized as "Yanikeke".
The history of this food is extensive and varies depending on the region of the country where it is told, but the version of this food in Samaná is very different from the Yanikeke commonly known in other regions of the country.
