About the book-
Cuba continues to captivate visitors with its vibrant culture, colorful cities, and incredible cuisine. Cuba! explores the magic of this country through recipes and stories that will set taste buds on fire and delight even the most well-seasoned traveler.
Brazen, bold, and colorful, Cuba is a country that pulses with life. Fascinated by its people and their endlessly delicious home-cooked cuisine, friends Dan Goldberg and Andrea Kuhn have been visiting this magnetic country, capturing its passion and vibrancy, for the past five years. Dan, an award-winning photographer and Andrea, an acclaimed prop stylist and art director, along with renowned food writer Jody Eddy, bring the best of Cuban food to home kitchens with more than 75 meticulously tested recipes. From Cuban-Style Fried Chicken and Tostones Stuffed with Lobster and Conch, to Squid-ink Empanadas and Mojito Cake with Rum-Infused Whipped Cream, this book offers a unique opportunity to bring a little slice of Cuba into your home and onto your plate.
I love eating foods from different cultures. It opens up your palate to many different tastes that you may have never come across otherwise. The spanish has so many different regions and with all of those regions come different variations of food. The Cubans have a flavor all their own. There are recipes for all of the popular Cuban foods you would expect- cubanos, paella, empanadas- and so many other delicious foods and desserts. One of the best things about the book are the candid shots of the Cuban people. It adds a touch of culture to the book. Cuba! is a cookbook worth exploring whether you are a novice to Cuban food or you already love it and want to re-create the amazing flavor of cuisines at home.
