Timeless Cuban Cooking 14 Jan 2006
By Willy G - Published on Amazon.com
This is no mere cookbook, it is an institution.

This book defined Cuban home cooking for 1st generation Cuban American children whose parents came to the US from Cuba in search of a better life for their families. Being one of those children, my mom's cooking (with help from this book) forever defined what great home cooked Cuban food should be. It is the touchstone to which I will always compare anyone elses Cuban food. And to be honest, none so far has compared.

"Cocina al Minuto" represents a piece of Cuban culture and tradition in every household. Not nuevo Latino, fusion, or any other interpretation of the moment, these recipes are the bedrock of all great cuban dishes. Cuban family cooking at its best.

My mom passed the book on to me when I moved away and each time I cook a recipe it takes me back to my childhood, watching my mom cook in the house I grew up in. One of my favorites is Frijoles Negros. When I make this dish of dishes, and nail it, as my mom used to make, an incredible sense of joy and pride come over me. It is a little piece of my childhood in a spoon.

I hope to pass these same recipes on to my children and perpetuate the tradition of wonderful Cuban home cooking.

Fabulous Cuban Cooking!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o) 6 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
If you speak Spanish and you like to cook this is a book for you. It depicts all the Cuban favorites. I had this book for years and in so many moves and changes lost it. I am happy to have found it again (only amazon.com!!!) and now I will be able to recreate all those wonderful dishes.

The Cuban Bible 22 Oct 2005
By Cristina Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
They don't call this "The Cuban Bible" for nothing. My Mom and Aunt brought theirs from Cuba when they immigrated to the United States. It is so worn out they are falling apart. It is the best cookbook I have ever used. The recipes are simply wonderful. Anytime I want to make a special Cuban dish I pull out "Cocina Al Minuto." I have also purchased several copies as gifts for family and friends.

This is the best Cuban/Carribean Recipe Book 8 Oct 2005
By L. C. Dickinson - Published on Amazon.com
I've bought this book 4 times. Each time someone comes over they end up taking it with them! I was born in Cuba and can make almost anything from sushi to apple tartin, but I can't make the Cuban food my mother makes... this book gets me there. It doesn't replace Mom's cooking, but boy does it come close! This is the best investment.

Excellent Collection of Cuban Recipes 7 Oct 2009
By R. Alvarez - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My mother told me about the author and how she had a cooking show in Cuba. She made the author sound like the Martha Stewart of Havana when it came to the kitchen. I was so happy to find this book, which contains a number of the recipies that my mother used and I thought were gone forever.
