In her debut book, Mi Comida Latina, Marcella Kriebel created a new type of cookbook. It combined vivid watercolors with the culinary traditions of Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and Puerto Rico. Now, Marcella returns with a new collection of recipes that span the country of Cuba from coast to coast.
Travel the island and discover the Cuban take on classic dishes like empanadas as well as unique Cuban recipes like Bacán(plantain and crab steamed in banana leaves) Calaú(traditional greens stew), and Pastelitos de Guayaba(puff pastries with guava paste). Learn about the country’s food culture and ingredients through interviews and local stories, then complete the experience with an authentic Cuban cocktail or a post-meal café con leche. There's no need to wait, grab a plate straight from the island now!
