by Cynthia Carris Alonso and Valerie Feigen and Jose Luis Alonso


Overview -

From the leading photographer of Cuba, A Taste of Cuba is a stunning culinary and visual journey through Cuba that presents 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 where the chefs share for the very first time, their brilliant techniques, inspiration, and best recipes.

Renowned Cuba photographer Cynthia Carris Alonso and her Cuban husband, Jos 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 offers seventy-five original recipes supplied by Cuba's top chefs, tested and translated for an American kitchen by chef Valerie Feigen, allowing you to make staples such as ropa vieja, frijoles negros, and maduros--stewed beef, black beans, and sweet plantains--as well as for more elaborate dishes, such as eggplant caviar, fish tacos, and ham croquettes. It shares the recipe 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, and Ernest Hemingway's papa doble daiquiri of legend.
