Overview

Traditionally Cuban women believed that cooking was one of the most important gifts they could give to their families. In Cuban Chicks Can Cook, the Indispensable Guide to Basic Cuban Favorites, author Ana Quincoces Rodriguez will convince you that they had the right idea. Her book will entertain and amuse you with a diverse collection of easy-to-follow Cuban recipes and sample menus.

Quincoces Rodriguez begins with the basics by instructing you to buy three items that are the "holy trinity" of Cuban cuisine - a head of garlic, a green bell pepper, and a Spanish onion. Armed with these ingredients and a few other items, you're ready to begin preparing and feasting on her delicious and authentic recipes! Quincoces Rodriguez shares her Cuban culture through personal stories interspersed throughout sections that include soups and stews, rice and meat dishes, and finger foods and desserts. Finally, you will learn how to make both the wildly popular mojito, a rum drink garnished with fresh mint, and café con leche, a coffee drink that most Cubans can't live without every morning.

Cuban Chicks Can Cook doesn't emphasize perfection, but instead provides an inside look at a culture that embraces food with the same enthusiasm it has for life - spicy, hot, and delectable!
