Recipes - How to Make Authentic Cuban Food
Since 2001, Taste of Cuba has been the best source for Cuban
recipes. Here you will find the biggest collection of Cuban
cooking recipes online. Most recipes are traditional, and a
few are old ones with new twists.
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
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
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.
