As the borders of Cuba continue to relax, more and more tourists are flooding in and finding a country rich in history and steeped in tradition. Award-winning photographer Dan Goldberg has been visiting and photographing Cuba for almost a decade. Fascinated by its people, their kitchens, and the endlessly delicious food they create, Dan has managed to capture passion and vibrancy of this incredible country. Along with his co-authors, food writer Jody Eddy and stylist Andrea Kuhn, Dan brings the best of Cuban food to home kitchens with over 75 meticulously tested recipes. ¡Cuba! will set taste buds on fire and open eyes to a culture that has remained resilient and festive across generations. From Cuban-Style Fried Chicken and Tostones Stuffed with Lobster and Conch, to Squid-ink Empanadas and Mojito Cake with Rum-Infused Whipped Cream and Lime Zest, this book offers a unique opportunity to bring a little slice of Cuba home.

I decided to try out some Cuban recipes. I knew the flavor would be amazing from what some friends had told me. So when I was offered this book to review, I jumped on the opportunity. Glad that I did.

My daughter isn't one to be adventurous with her food, so I had to wait for her to go visit her dad before I could try any of these recipes. So far the only one that we tried in the book was the Lobster Roll. The taste was just simply amazing! And it was very easy to make. I wasn't able to get the fresh lobster for this recipe however, so I had bought from my grocers frozen section, but the flavor was still there. There are so many more recipes in here that I can't wait to try.

This cookbook offers many beautiful pictures and wonder stories that I feel as if that I learned some more of this culture. I highly recommend this for anyone feeling a bit adventurous.
