About the Author

Carmen Aboy Valldejuli expressed her hopes that, eventually, all readers may wend their way to Puerto Rico to sample these delicacies in the land of their origin. But, she was certain that the recipes in Puerto Rican Cookery would bring the flavor of the islands to your own table. Pelican also publishes the Spanish version of this book, Cocina Criolla, as well as the Spanish cookbook classic Juntos en la Cocina, written by Valldejuli and her husband, Luis F. Valldejuli. Valldejuli passed away in 2005.

The English version for this book is, PUERTO RICAN COOKERY by the same author. It is also available here in Amazon.com.
This is one of the best cooking books from Puerto Rico, with a lot of easy to follow dishes. The Bible in all the kitchens of the puertorriquenos.

Mi madre tiene una copia de este libro con el autografo de la autora (primera edición). Con él fue que aprendí a cocinar. Cuando me case, fue el primer libro que compré para mi nuevo hogar. El libro ofrece las recetas basicas tradicionales, que uno con el tiempo aprende a modificar a su gusto. El libro es un clasico de la cultura puertorriqueña, debe estar en toda biblioteca boricua.

My mother bought this book her first week of marriage. I learned to cook from this cookbook during my childhood in Puerto Rico. When I went to college my mother bought me this book as a graduation present.
It is an invaluable guide to Puertorican cooking. All the basics are in it and more. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Puertorican food!

This is the best Puerto Rican cookbook you will ever find. When I got married my mom took me to the store to find this book and she said to me: "You can't leave Puerto Rico without this, treasure it forever, keep your husband happy for years to come." I've been married 10 years and I still use the cookbook and my husband gets very excited on what I will cook next. He has even done some himself and feels like a great chef. Everything on that book tastes as good as it sounds or better. It is the BEST of all. I will pass this on to my children when the time comes.

An excellent source of Puerto Rican cuisine. I have been using this book since 1963. It was a gift from my mother in law who was a fantastic cook and whom I kept pestering for receipes as a new bride. It has been my only source for receipes from back home and I continue to pass on these receipes to my children. I only wish there was a copy in english as some of the terminology and names of foods I am not failiar with.

The recipes in this cookbook are the real thing; everything comes out the way I remember my grandmother's cooking was. The best.

This book is amazing. I am a native Puerto Rican but live in Georgia. I truly miss all the authentic flavors from back home and there were a few things that I still had yet to learn.
I am so glad that before I moved my grandmother gave me this as a gift because it has ALL the recipes for typical Puerto Rican foods such as Pasteles, Mofongo, Alcapurrias and even desserts like Tembleque. Every time a make a recipe from the book it takes me back home!
