Publishers Text

From the leading photographer of Cuba, A Taste of Cuba is a stunning culinary and visual journey through Cuba that presents more than 75 authentic, never-before-shared recipes from the world’s most inventive chefs.

In a country shrouded in secrecy, a mouthwatering, but little-known food scene thrives. A Taste of Cuba offers unprecedented access into the kitchens of Cuba’s top chefs, where the country’s most delectable dishes are created, and the chefs share their brilliant techniques, inspiration, and best recipes for the very first time.

Renowned Cuba photographer Cynthia Carris Alonso and her Cuban husband, José Luis Alonso, take you with them on their ride through Havana and around the country, as they stop in Cuba’s twenty top paladares—private, family owned establishments. Inside you’ll see how Cuban chefs are world-class resourceful and inventive, adapting their dishes based on the changing ingredients available on the market. Between visits with the chefs, you’ll walk the streets of Cuba, experiencing its vibrant, colorful culture and seeing its lush landscapes up close.

A Taste of Cuba in its second edition offers a wealth of new photos and additional, newly procured recipes from Cuba’s top chefs, again tested and translated for an American kitchen. The result allows you to make classic Cuban dishes such as ropa vieja, frijoles negros, and maduros—stewed beef, black beans, and sweet plantains—as well as more elaborate foods, such as eggplant caviar, fish tacos, and ham croquettes. It also shares the recipes for La Cocina de Lilliam’s life-changing bread; sweets such as dreamy alfajores con dulce de leche; Cuba’s famous coffees, mojitos, and juices; Ernest Hemingway’s papa doble daiquiri of legend; and much more. In addition to the recipes and spectacular photos of the chefs and their kitchens, stunning photos of Cuba and insightful text about its regions and culture are throughout.
