CUBA : THE COOK­BOOK

Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - EUROCUCINA 2018 - BY MADE­LAINE VÁZQUEZ GÁLVEZ AND IMO GENE TONDRE

PHAIDON Danc­ing and flirt­ing. Cold beers and strong cigars. Crum­bling dusty-pink houses and pic­ture-per­fect beaches. There is a sen­su­al­ity and headi­ness to Cuba that draws peo­ple from around the globe, but while a trip to the island has al­ways been a feast for the eyes, it is fast be­com­ing an ac­tual feast, too. This brightly coloured cook­book feels like sun­shine on a page, and it ex­plores why island men­tal­ity doesn’t ex­ist in Cuba, at least when it comes to cook­ing. With a na­tional cui­sine that is in­flu­enced by Spain, Ghana, China, France and Rus­sia, this small Caribbean na­tion puts the in­ner-city streets of Lon­don and New York to shame when it comes to gas­tron­omy with a global twist. And with recipes in­clud­ing fresh lob­ster cooked with yams and plan­tains, and grilled do­rade made with sweet veg­eta­bles, this is your ideal sum­mer com­pan­ion.
