Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The best foreign cookbook honors go to Memories of a Cuban Kitchen. The book rings wonderfully true, both in its recipes and its evocations of pre-Castro Havana as recalled by author Mary Urrutia Randelman with heartfelt affection. 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 Dishes
  • Bistec 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)

Synopsis:

Authentic Cuban recipes offer a mixture of Spanish, Indian, African, Chinese, and Portuguese cuisine, from appetizers like Green Plantain Chips, to such entrees as Roast Pork Creole, to tropical rum-based drinks and desserts.

Filled with reminiscences and evocative halftone photos of Randelman's childhood in pre-Castro Cuba, this book presents more than 200 traditional recipes for Cuban dishes, a cuisine that lusciously combines Spanish, Indian, African, Chinese, and Portuguese influences.
