"Cuban parties have always been about food. Step into any Miami Cuban household a few hours before a big party and you will immediately detect the heavenly scent of garlic, green peppers, and onions sizzling in olive oil." ~ GlennCelebrate Cuban is a collectible cookbook, not only because of the amazing pictures tempting you at every turn of the page, but because of the writing style. I adore the way this book is written. The personality shines throughout and each recipe has comments from Glenn, Raúl and Jorge. There are also conversations between the three cooks and this introduces you to the cultural significance of each dish or gives you insight into why an ingredient is so popular.The recipes are especially unique and while you may have never tried a guava cake, the picture will have you ordering cans of guava. Guavas are also used in the sauce for the Baby Back Ribs.The rum butter frosting on the Rum and Coke cake uses Coca-Cola and this amusing comment is on the same page:"The biggest trouble we had making this cake was convincing Raúl that the rum and Coke goes in the cake and not in the cooks!" ~ JorgeFor dinner you might want to try the Grilled Fish recipe that works on your outdoor grill. Beef Kebobs are flavored with citrus and oregano and you can prepare them the night before. The Chinese-Cuban Style Pork Roast is drenched in a soy and sherry sauce with five-spice powder and more garlic.Roasted Turkey with Lime and Oregano sounds delicious for Thanksgiving. The instructions are detailed enough to make this sound easy to accomplish. First you make a marinade in your blender with lots of garlic and then leave everything overnight.
I congratulate the Three Guys on their new book! I discovered their website years ago and have found it an invaluable resource for information on Cuban food and culture. I purchased their early online recipe book and still use it today. I also bought their first hardcover book and pre-ordered this second hardcover as soon as it was available.I must say that I am very impressed with this book and find it even better than their first. It is bigger, has more recipes, and - BONUS - it has a lot more pictures of the actual dishes this time! This was a complaint of mine with their first book - not enough pictures of the food were used when they could easily have been included instead of pictures of inanimate objects and other at times seemingly irrelevant things. But this book does have a lot more pictures and it is so helpful for an amateur cook like myself to see what the finished product is actually supposed to look like, plus of course the pictures are mouthwatering!I don't throw parties myself, but I still wanted this book just in case I ever do decide to throw a Cuban party. However, the recipes can be used, as it states in the book, for any size gathering - be it just a simple family dinner for three or four people to an actual large party.I also loved the little articles about how Cubans celebrate various holiday traditions, such as Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's, and Three Kings Day. It gave me some ideas to use with my own family.Finally, I appreciate the fact that they always suggest substitues if, like myself, you live in an area that has hardly any Cuban ingredients and where the majority of the locals don't even know what a plantain is! For instance, they tell you how to substitute for sour orange juice, "calabaza," etc.
