Book Description

What is Cuban cuisine? A delectable intermingling of Spanish, Portuguese, Arabian, Chinese, and African culinary traditions—a true melting pot of all the influences that combine in Cuban culture.

Now, Raquel Rabade Roque gives us the definitive book of Cuban cuisine: encyclopedic in its range, but intimate and accessible in tone with more than five hundred recipes for classic, home-style dishes—from black bean soup to pork empanadas, from ropa vieja to black beans and croquetas, from tostones to arroz con pollo, from churros to café con leche—as well as the vividly told stories behind the recipes.

Based on the author’s family recipes, this is real Cuban cooking presented with today’s busy cooks in mind. Whether you are an experienced cook or a novice, a lover of Cuban cuisine or just discovering it, The Cuban Kitchen will become an essential part of your kitchen library.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modernized cuban recipe book September 13, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Loved the book. It is prepared for people like me who prefer to read in English and at the same time, the book gives you the Cuban name of the recipe, as the English version makes no sense unless it is in Spanish, as well as the name of the ingredients in English. Great variety of recipes where you will have tons of fun preparing dishes that you know the name that existed within the old family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reciepes and a lot of fun March 22, 2013
My husband bought me this book, and we have had so much fun making recipes from this book. We are not Cuban, so most of these are new to us. Very delicious results so far. I look in this book almost everyday, and I always find something to make in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars great cookbook February 6, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
covers everything, from drinks to desserts. A nice touch is the substitutes for items not readily available outside a Cuban grocery. Made me hungry just reading the recipes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Uncomplicated Recipes November 27, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book has some decent recipes but definitely not my favorite. The recipes are easy but I prefer some of the more complex ones in my other cookbooks. Good book for the chef who likes pretty simple recipes.

Bought this as a gift for friends who are from Cuba. They were very excited and pleased to get great recipes of the foods they grew up eating.
