Puerto Rico: Grand Cuisine Of The Caribbean

Throughout five centuries, Puerto Rico has developed an internationally renowned cuisine, which incorporates Caribbean ingredients and a long tradition of culinary culture. In this book, the profiles and recipes of nine great chefs demonstrate human and professional aspects of their careers, and how by their efforts-and that of many of their colleagues-Puerto Rico has turned into the gastronomic capital of the Caribbean.

This is a beautiful book, with lots of nice pictures and plenty of narrative about Puerto Rico. The recipes are from San Juan's star chefs and showcase their fusion cuisine. This is not a book of recipes of typical Puerto Rican cuisine--in fact, the number of recipes is pretty low.

This is a book with fantastic food photos. Full of interesting stories about the chefs and a bit of history of Puerto Rico..I have tasted many of the recipes, now will get to try to make them myself. This book will make wonderful xmas presents for many of my friends who have visited me in PR over the years and have eaten at some of the restaurents where these chefs presented their cuisine.

I love this book. It is about time that people open their eyes and palates to such a tasty cuisine especially that the United States has been involved with the gorgeous island of Puerto Rico since 1898. It is like no other Latin cuisine.

This is a beautiful book, a little more gourmet version Puerto Rican food. It can be a great coffee book because the photos are so nice. Recipe are friendly to follow. Love this book.

I wish i had found this book earlier. Awesome! food like i remember from PR. A MUST HAVE is you love comida criollo!!!

As an avid reader of Puerto Rican cookbooks, I am always on the look out for an interesting new title. This cookbook, is beautifully photographed and has wonderful stories about the chefs. The recipes are really interesting and have ingredients that I would not normally have seen in my mom's kitchen, look at the pasteles recipe and you will see what I mean. Can't wait to show off our new recipes at a dinner party.
