Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is Cuban cuisine? A delectable intermingling of Spanish, Portuguese, Arabian, Chinese, and African culinary traditions—a true melting pot of all the influences that combine in Cuban culture.

Now, Raquel Rabade Roque gives us the definitive book of Cuban cuisine: encyclopedic in its range, but intimate and accessible in tone with more than five hundred recipes for classic, home-style dishes—from black bean soup to pork empanadas, from ropa vieja to black beans and croquetas, from tostones to arroz con pollo, from churros to café con leche—as well as the vividly told stories behind the recipes.

Based on the author’s family recipes, this is real Cuban cooking presented with today’s busy cooks in mind. Whether you are an experienced cook or a novice, a lover of Cuban cuisine or just discovering it, The Cuban Kitchen will become an essential part of your kitchen library.

Review:

"Roque is the owner of one of Miami's largest bookstores, the Downtown Book Center. Her primary culinary credential is that she was raised in a 'proud Cuban household,' but that is wisdom enough for this collection of easy, flavorful dishes. The book's 26 chapters are packed with 500 short recipes covering everything from cocktails and batidos to Cuban baby food, ice cream treats, and candies. There are plenty of options focusing on chicken, beef, or pork. The chapter on sandwiches covers not only the classic cubano, but also a pressed ham and pineapple sandwich, and prepared cracker fulana, which is a mini ham and cheese served on saltines. There are more than 20 offerings in the chapter of egg recipes, including eggs malaga style, a souffle with ham, shrimp, peas, and asparagus. Roque also provides several 'secrets of a Cuban cook,' such as how to clean pig's feet, the easy way to peel a beet, and what to look for when choosing lobster. For adventurous gadget lovers, there is a section of recipes that employ a pressure cooker, while owners of ice cream machines and espresso coffee makers will also find recipes to exploit. (Aug.)"
