Overview

An extensive celebration of the best of Cuban cooking, Authentic Cuban Cuisine features time-honored recipes passed down from generation to generation. Filled with comfortable, home-style preparations from the kitchens of Martha Abreu Cortina's mother, grandmother, relatives, and friends, this collection invites home cooks of all abilities to indulge in the flavorful pleasure of the traditional Cuban meal.

The recipes, listed in both English and Spanish, range from simply seasoned black beans (frijoles negros) and pot roast (boliche) to classic shredded beef (ropa vieja) and the venturesome Oxtail on Fire (Rabo Encendido). Individual chapters devoted to seafood, meat, and poultry preparations are complemented by dozens of additional recipes for appetizers, salads, soups, sides, and desserts. Cortina's warm and inviting tone translates every entry--from ham croquettes and corn stew to fried sweet plantains and flan--into an authentically Cuban experience.
