Hosting a Cuban Theme Party or Dinner?


Many people ask me for suggestions for Cuban-themed events. You can find info on food, music and decorations in the Cuban theme party discussion thread on my site's message board (a forum separate from the main website).


But for starters, popular and common meals to serve at an event would include Moros y Cristianos (black beans and rice), arroz con pollo (rice and chicken), fried plantains, and Cuban sandwiches.  To make things easy, popular dishes on each category page (appetizers, main dishes, etc) are in bold.


Where do these Recipes Come From?


Many recipes found on this website were family originals submitted by visitors.  Some are from various Cuban cookbooks, posted with permission.


But this website would not be as popular as it is today were it not for the recipes and tips from experienced cook and author Sonia R. Martinez.  Sonia, along with Pascual Perez, founded the Cocina Cubana cooking club online. So many great suggestions and stories found on this site are from Sonia and the club.


Sonia is a native of Cuba living in Hawaii. I encourage you to learn more about her fusion of Cuban and Hawaiian cuisine at her website Sonia Tastes Hawaii.
