Synopses & Reviews
The Three Guys from Miami have done it again with 100 ALL-NEW delicious Cuban recipes for creating an amazing party, no matter the occasion! After all, the Three Guys know that when you eat Cuban food, every meal is a celebration. For Cubans, getting together with family is at least a monthly, if not weekly, ritual. And the perfect Cuban party includes these things: Good food, good friends, good music, more good food, good conversation, a good drink or two, and of course, a good time. Cuban parties have always revolved around food-and oh, the food! Huge platters of tender roasted pork, plates of crispy yellow tostones, and bowls of black beans cooked to perfection in a thick aromatic stew, tropical drinks, sweet desserts, and more. This cookbook includes some of the Three Guys' favorite party dishes. These festive recipes are perfect for ALL occasions, and they'll surely inspire you to put together a unique party as an excuse to create a unique Cuban menu!
"Actually, it's two guys from Miami and a Minnesotan who just winters there (Lindgren). The semi-wild and mildly crazy trio are back with their second effort (after Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban). It features 100 new party-friendly creations and page upon page of less than stimulating banter laid out as marginalia opposite each recipe ('Milk has always been thought to provide some comfort for an upset stomach'). Still, it's hard to dislike a cookbook that puts the desserts at the beginning. Cake de Cuba Libre is the most effervescent of the batch, with rum and Coca-Cola in both the batter and the accompanying sauce. Standouts among the various soups and main dishes include Sweet Plantain Soup, Cuban Wedding Shrimp in a sauce of rum and orange juice, and traditional pork chops with plenty of garlic. The authors are willing to Cubanize at will; there is Cuban Style Lobster (with Chorizo), Cuban Stuffed Turkey (with a rice and bean stuffing) and Cuban Baby Back Ribs (with Guava Sauce). The many full-page color photos make all the recipes look mouth-watering; less appetizing are the shots of the Three Guys in loud shirts or staggering down a beach. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
Lindgren, Musibay and Castillo are the "Three Guys from Miami," a hearty band of bon vivants who offer a delicious array of Cuban-inspired foods accompanied by cultural anecdotes and off-the-wall humor. Kirkus Reviews
