“One of the most exciting cookbooks of the year.”
—Alex Beggs, Bon Appetit

“Now that Cuba is more open to the U.S., the opportunity to visit and indulge in the culinary soul of the country is ripe. Until the actual journey, though, here are some delightfully bold recipes from ¡Cuba! Recipes and Stories From the Cuban Kitchen that will give you a first taste and, hopefully, inspire a smile and a warm heart.”
—Brooke Bobb, Vogue
