Cuba! : Recipes and Stories from the Cuban Kitchen, Signed Copy
+ $ shipping surcharge
How Cuba eats and how Cuba lives.
Cuba! doesn’t get an exclamation in its title for nothing. This exploration of Cuban cuisine is exuberant and celebratory—as seen through the eyes of its passionate and resilient people.
Goldberg, Kuhn, and Eddy start you off with a fundamental building block of Cuban food: rice and beans, a cultural amalgamation of Spanish and African food that is intrinsic to the Cuban identity. Once you’ve mastered that (and a few other basics like yellow rice, fried plantains, and mojo) you’re just a fry pan away from a Cuban-inspired dinner.
Cuban classics—the iconic Cubano pressed sandwich and Tortilla Española, to name a few—are accompanied by less familiar, modern dishes, like Squid-ink Empanadas and Ribs with Guava Barbecue Sauce. Pair your meal with one of their ten essential Cuban cocktails (Mojitos!)
The book is full of the people and places the writers met and saw during their travels: the farmers of the organoponicos (organic farms), the elderly woman who invited the crew in off the street to cook a one-pot slow-simmered stew with her, and the fisherman lined up on the Malecón, a 5-mile stretch of seawall on the coast. Their stories bring personality and joy to the recipes within, justifying that exclamation point on the title—!
