Viva Saralegui!~

This is a visually beautiful book which contains recipes that are pleasing both to the eye and the palate. The instructions are clear and easy to follow; the ingredients are easily obtainable (not obscure items that would preclude the recipes from being practical for the at-home cook). The recipes themselves are works of art. The results of my efforts so far have been delicious and extremely well-received by all who consumed them! The spinach and queso blanco empanadas are melt-in-your-mouth jewels, and the Saralegui black bean guacamole is a true confetti among guacamoles, with every colorful ingredient adding a new layer to combine for a taste EXPLOSION! The Christmas cookie recipe has replaced my old standby sugar cookie recipe, since it makes a dough that is easier to use and produces a cookie that is a bit softer yet stands up to time and extreme decoration (even by 7-year-old boys). You won't be disappointed in this lovely book - it is a good cook's book and a wonderful family travelogue. Thank you, Saralegui family, for this contribution.

As a Cuban I give it five stars +

Fernando has writen a great book on Cuban cuisine. Now that Cuban food is being discovered by mainstream America, I recommend the book to all. Finally, our secret is out. Viva Cuba Libre, and Ropa Vieja too!


A great book. I recommend it for anyone who loves food and entertaining.

Absolutely the best!

This is one of the most charming, informative, and just plain great cookbooks I've seen in a long time. Covers everything from the perfect margarita to empanadas and every staple of cuban cuisine in between. The recipes are easy to prepare and rang from simple, classic soups to really outstanding presentation dishes for Thanksgiving, Christmas, communions - you name it! But what really makes it come alive are the funny and truly lovely anecdotes and stories of Fernando Saralegui's family and friends. A really great read, and you'll make some fantastic food, too! Highly recommended.

My new favorite cookbook!

I love to do theme dinners and this book is perfect for planning one! The recipes are a lot easier than I would have thought and each one has a suggested Latin-inspired drink to go with it. In the beginning of the book there is even a listing of what you should include in your Cuban bar. And to top it off, there is a list of songs to play during dinner to really set the atmosphere. And if your a messy cook like me, then you'll like the heavy-weight paper that wipes clean.
