Food with Attitude takes the notion that healthy food has to be bland and turns it on its head with Cuban- Rican cooking, a fusion of two distinct Caribbean styles that combine for an explosion of exotic spices and flavors. In this vibrant and imaginative cookbook, Chef Pérez shares his secrets as a master craftsman in the kitchen, and experiences passed down from his ancestral home in Old San Juan.

Readers will learn how to turn ordinary dishes into gourmet meals the whole family will love, with zesty appetizers, savory side dishes, aromatic salads, hearty main courses, and delectable desserts. Recipes delve into classics such as sazon papas, Cajun hummus, vegan arroz con gandules, award-winning Angel sweet potato pie, and the inimitable Havana Hot Plate, a creative comida of steak, garlicky yucca, and red beans and rice. This cookbook has a delicacy for every kind of palate and creed, from mac n' cheese to wheatgrass spicy rum cake; from grilled vegetables to the Pérez original peanut-butter-and-jelly smoothie, a favorite of his six children.

CHEF PAPI PÉREZ bears the distinction of being one of the only certified Kosher chefs in Chicago. He has been an award-winning pie maker, menu consultant, and innovator in the kitchen for the past 25 years. Having personally cooked for a large percentage of President Obama's White House staff, Chef Pérez is considered a world authority on Caribbean cooking.
