Ana Sofía Peláez & Ellen Silverman - The Cuban Table

The Cuban Table, A Celebration of Food, Flavors, and History

cuba recipes .org - The Cuban table

The Cuban Table is a comprehensive, contemporary overview of Cuban food, recipes and culture as recounted by serious home cooks and professional chefs, restaurateurs and food writers. Cuban-American food writer Ana Sofia Pelaez and award-winning photographer Ellen Silverman travelled through Cuba, Miami and New York to document and learn about traditional Cuban cooking from a wide range of authentic sources.

Cuban home cooks are fiercely protective of their secrets. Content with a private kind of renown, they demonstrate an elusive turn of hand that transforms simple recipes into bright and memorable meals that draw family and friends to their tables time and again. More than just a list of ingredients or series of steps, Cuban cooks' tricks and touches hide in plain sight, staying within families or being passed down in well-worn copies of old cookbooks largely unread outside of the Cuban community.

Here you'll find documented recipes for everything from iconic Cuban sandwiches to rich stews with Spanish accents and African ingredients, accompanied by details about historical context and insight into cultural nuances. More than a cookbook, The Cuban Table is a celebration of Cuban cooking, culture and cuisine. With stunning photographs throughout and over 110 deliciously authentic recipes this cookbook invites you into one of the Caribbean’s most interesting and vibrant cuisines.

Llamas Beatriz - A Taste of Cuba

cuba recipes .org - A Taste of Cuba

Cuban cuisine is a fascinating mixture of cultures and ingredients drawn from the island's complex history and its wide-ranging natural resources. It includes the early influences of native Cuban Indians (with their cassava, taro root, corn and black beans), the arrival of the Spanish colonisers with the cash crops of coffee and sugar, as well as their stuffed roasted meats and peppers, and, of course, the African slaves who brought okra and plantain.

Today, all these are such important elements of Cuban cuisine that is seems as though they have always been on the island. Add a little Havana Club and some salsa music to the pot and the story of Cuban cuisine really begins to take shape.

Cuba - The Legend of Rum

cuba recipes .org - Cuba, The Legend of RumThe history of sugarcane and its ethereal descendant - authentic Cuban rum - are closely associated with the legends of the Cuban nation, with its countryside, its culture, its music and its spirit. In this book you will discover the true roots of Cuban rum: from its relationships with people from explorer Christopher Columbus to author Ernest Hemingway; with places from the aging cellars at the distilleries to the legendary bars of Havana; and with its multi-cultural influences that they transformed into a distinctive Cuban identity; and with the embodiment of that persona in art, in literature, in music, in spirituality and in life itself.

This is a tale of passion and imagery, in which kings and conquistadors, pirates and planters, master rum blenders and bartenders, international movie stars and industrial magnates, revolutionaries and romanticists each play a significant role.
