I loved their first book, 'Three Guys From Miami Cook Cuban.' I never expected a sequel. However, I saw this one online and knew I had to have it. It's got the same fun, hip, irreverent attitude. But the photography, wow! They really did a nice job with more than 50 pictures of great, mouth-watering dishes. This book is also a primer on Cuban culture. You'll learn all about the various celebrations that make up a Cuban year, from New Years Eve to Christmas Day and everything in between. The dishes are a combination of classic Cuban, some so firmly rooted in bedrock I doubt the Three Guys added many of their own twists, if any. However, most of the dishes DO bear the Three Guys unique touch. Even when they start with a classic, they always seem to improve on the recipe. Try making anyone else's recipe for Chicharrones de Pollo, and then try theirs. There is no comparison. They also present several dishes that are Latin or at least Latin inspired. For example, they have a great recipe for shrimp in a cilantro cream sauce that was a hit with my dinner circle. I believe the real secret to the Three Guys From Miami's success is their ability to make recipes that are oh-so-easy to follow. With a little humor (and an elbow to the ribs occasionally) they really make the whole process enjoyable. It's nice to read something that wasn't ghost written for one of the media darling chefs. If you are looking for a new direction for your next party, go Cuban! An excellent book and one that will forever remain in my collection.

The Three Guys From Miami are back with their long-promised Cuban party book, 'Three Guys From Miami Celebrate Cuban.' The Guys have collected the best recipes from a lifetime of Three Guys' parties and present them here in a fun and light-hearted book that truly celebrates the Cuban spirit. The book is both a guide to great party dishes and a primer on the Cuban holiday traditions that inspire them. The authors provide plenty of details about traditional Cuban celebrations -- everything from the Christmas holidays to birthday celebrations and Thanksgiving. The recipes follow the spirit of their first book, 'Three Guys From Miami Cook Cuban,' with clear, easy-to-follow instructions that make creating spectacular dishes a snap. Recipe highlights include a simply wonderful guava cake, a refreshing take on tropical fruit cocktail, a delightful rice and seafood dish, a mixed salad that almost looks too good to eat, and some wonderfully complex soups brimming with exotic tropical flavor. Of course the book highlights many traditional dishes that are eaten during the various holidays, including two recipes for a Cuban-themed roast turkey. For backyard entertaining, the Guys supply several great recipes for the grill, including several pinchos (kebob) recipes that are unique and a snap to prepare. The book is organized by dish type, with the desserts in the front! The Guys obviously have their priorities in order and in a party book, why not? Like their first offering, this book is laced with plenty of Three Guy's humor. You might find yourself groaning at some of the punch lines, but this book will keep you laughing in the kitchen. All in all this is a fun and informative cookbook with great Cuban and Latin American recipes. I highly recommend it!
