(*But were afraid to ask!)
We see so many tourists eating Dunkin'Donuts for breakfast, Big Macs and Whoppers for lunch, and at dinner they splurge on something really exotic: Outback Steakhouse.
Listen people! You can eat that kind of food at home. When you come to Miami, why not break out of your shell?
Think about it: an island nation where the main crop is sugar cane. The result? Cuban desserts that come in three flavors: sweet, sweeter, and "you've got to be kidding!" Yes, Cubans have never been stingy with the sugar and Cuban desserts are among the sweetest in the world. In this section we guide you through some of the most popular Cuban treats, making your next trip to a Cuban bakery or restaurant a breeze!
Check out this collection of recipes that are the result of 50 years of Cuban food evolution in the United States. These are the classics re-interpreted in the "Miami Style" to reflect not only an abundance of food in the United States, but also the many influences of other cultures in the melting pot of Miami. Brought to you by Three Guys who share a passion for good food, good conversation, and a great party.
There were always many ice cream parlors in the major Cuban cities. In the old days, you could order canoas (canoes or long sundae dishes) and ensaladas (five-scoop monsters) filled with your favorite tropical flavors and toppings. Mango, coconut, fruta bomba, mamey, guava, and pineapple were very popular.
Come to think of it, that IS our backyard!
This new Kindle version contains all of the recipes and editorial copy from the original print edition. As a bonus, the new Kindle edition includes more than 24 new photos of the prepared dishes.
