Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rivera, a novelist and a Nuyorican (the term refers to a Puerto Rican raised or born in New York City), has compiled a wide-ranging collection of homestyle Puerto Rican recipes, both traditional dishes and those adapted or inspired by mainland cuisine. Many of them come from Rivera's extended family, and his readable headnotes and introductions include lots of family anecdotes as well as background on Puerto Rican culture and cuisines. Thoughtful wine suggestions accompany most dishes. Recipes from Puerto Rico appear in general Caribbean cookbooks, but there are few titles on its cuisine alone. Recommended.
