Good but Still Not as Authentic. I am Cuban and grew up with amazing home cooking. My grandmother used to cook for a living in Cuba and really spoiled us with delicious meals. The one thing that is Americanized in this book is that nearly every recipe has black pepper. This is the biggest No No is Cuban cooking! If they even suspect a tiny amount of black pepper you will get dirty looks from everyone around and the food will be considered ruined immediately Personally, I love black pepper as I grew up here but I have learned never to add this to any dishes that my relatives will eat unless I want another lengthy lecture on this subject.

I can usually find at least a few recipes I love when I buy a new cookbook, but The Cuban Kitchen is riddled with them. Every recipe that I've tried has turned out delicious, and my Cuban husband even says it reminds him of his family's home cooking.

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.

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.

I keep turning to this cookbook--for everyday, delicious meals as well as for special occasions. And the family stories are lovely.

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.

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.
