You can create an authentic taste in your own kitchen! This cookbook has great recipes for home cooked Cuban food. You can feel the author's love of her heritage through the recipes that she remembers from her childhood. My favorites are Ensalada Russa that comes from Cuba's Spanish roots, Camarones con Crema Cilantro and Stuffed Pork Loin that is a great and easy recipe for holidays and family gatherings. All Cuban Americans should own a copy!

I do not consider myself a great cook but absolutely love the fact that I have tried out recipes and my family and I have enjoyed them profusely. I am the type of cook that needs to follow the directions to a tee and feel lost if I have to improvise or go at it blindly. We love the "Ropa Vieja" & "Vaca Frita". The hardest part is boiling it for 1 1/2 hrs and then shredding it. The end result is worth all the time spent in the kitchen. The meals remind me of a birthplace I never knew, in which I was too young to recollect. Something, yet small that I can pass on to my children.

What a wonderful book! I have purhased at least ten copies of this book and given them to many of my friends as gifts. Not only are the recipes authentic and easy to follow, but every one comes with alittle bit of history and tradition. I applaud Mary Urrutia Randelman for allowing me to introduce the old Cuba and my traditions to so many of my friends. I keep my copy displayed on my kitchen counter!

Of all the recipe books out there claiming to have authentic Cuban recipes, this is the only one that TRULY gives the real recipe. All the others have been Americanized or Latinized from some other country. This is a great cookbook for those who truly want to learn about Cuban cuisine.

I found this book fabulous for those of us born here with Cuban parents. It is just like mami's food. It's important to keep traditions alive for our children. My nephew lost his mom and bought the book as soon as he married. It got him into cooking since his wife is not Cuban. He loved it and found it easy to follow. Why can't I find any new books to continue to give as gifts.
