A book full of memories 27 Oct 2013
By S. Sierra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Cocine a gusto" is a tradition in my family. There is a copy in every home. The first copy belongs to my grandmother. It was a gift of a friend in the 1959 mother's day. It's a treasure for me and full of memories and family history. Recently I buy this edition because I want to preserve the book of my grandmother.

In this book you can find 22 chapters. The authors provide information about all you have to know to cook: definitions, how to measure ingredients, and some cultural tips about puertorrican cuisine.

In this book you can find recipes to prepare juices, cakes, bread, fish, soups, salads, sandwichwes, grains, rice, meat, eggs and desserts with the latin-puertorrican flavor. Well written, the pages are colorful and the ilustrations invites to prepare a new recipe every day.

"Cocine a gusto" is very simple, and is used as a textbook in cooking schools. This book is good for people who master the art of cooking and those who initiate in it. I love the "sofrito", "mofongo", "bacalaitos" and "alcapurrias" recipes. If you want to have a bit of the latin-puertorrican flavor in your home, this is the book you are looking for.
