Summary

" The best foreign cookbook honors go to Memories of a Cuban Kitchen.

This beautiful book is a memory piece as much as a cookbook." -- The Washington Times " Memories of a Cuban Kitchen will be an added treasure in any cook's library and a must in the kitchen of any American of Cuban heritage or anyone who's interested in exploring Cuban cooking more fully at home." -- The Miami Herald A Sampling of Remembered DishesBistec de Palomilla (Cuban Fried Steak)Moros y Cristianos (Black Beans and Rice)Ajiaco Criollo (Cuban Creole Stew)Pargo Relleno (Stuffed Red Snapper)Ensalada de Aguacate y Mango (Avocado and Mango Salad)Flan de Coco (Coconut Flan)
