Carmen Aboy Valldejuli, nï e Aboy Ferrer, was a member of one of Puerto Rico's most distinguished families. Her relatives included actor-director Josï Ferrer and Monsita Ferrer, who was a well-known pianist and composer. Brought up in the old Spanish tradition, Mrs. Valldejuli did not have the opportunity to discover the joy of cooking in one's own kitchen until she met and married a gourmet, the late Luis F. Valldejuli.
Curious about Puerto Rico's native cuisine, the Valldejulis researched and collected recipes together. Their efforts produced two other cookbooks available from Pelican, Cocina Criolla and Juntos en la Cocina.
