About two weeks ago I posted about our experience at Gordo’s Cuban restaurant, the mouth-watering food they serve and thus, my desire to crack the neglected Cuban cookbook Clarita’s Cocina.
The instructions are very easy to follow and one of the things I love about this book (besides the great recipes) are the stories Clarita shares. Very down-to-earth explanations and suggestions by the author. If you are looking for a cookbook with good Cuban cuisine, grab a copy of Clarita’s Cocina. Let me tempt you – included are recipes for Picadillo, Empanadas, Black beans, Seafood Casserole, Crab Meat Croquettes, Ropa Vieja and Arroz con Pollo.
Ours is a household where soups and stews are always welcome, no matter the weather.
The prep isn’t too laborious, it’s just a few steps with lots of ingredients….stirring, simmering, sipping some wine after you have added a cup of white wine into this sumptuous mixture… If you have the desire to peruse a good cookbook specializing in Cuban cuisine, pick up a copy of this book. You won’t be sorry.
