The Cuban Table: A Celebration of Food, Flavors, and History by Ana Sofia Peláez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Mostly cookbook and part history of the Cuban diaspora and those still in Cuba. I really enjoyed the stories that surrounded each recipe and chapter. It really put many of the dishes into a personal space for the author.
I’ve already cooked a few dishes from the book and they were great. It’s a good time for me to get to a book like this because it is not as precise as America’s Test Kitchen, but I have the cooking skills necessary to do well with the recipes. A few years ago I wouldn’t have done very well at all.
If you are of Cuban descent, miss living in Miami, or just would like to learn how to cook Cuban dishes, this is a great book for you. It really does function well as a survey of the cuisine.
