Authentic Cuban food is served up from the melting pot of authentic traditional recipes from the four continents of South America, Africa, North America and Europe. Cuban cooking combines these cuisines to produce a very tasty, flavor rich, unique style of combining of recipes and ingredients, cooking and serving these treats.
Typical Cuban foods include black beans, white rice, yellow rice, citrus marinades, garlic, and fried sliced banana (plantain). Olive oil and garlic marinades are often used as sauces. In the spice department we see the popular Cumin, Cayenne, Coriander (Cilantro), We have included one of our most favorite Mojo recipes, an olive oil and Garlic sauce/marinade, CLICK HERE for an authentic Cuban Mojo recipe in the list. Meat is often prepared roasted and in a "creola" style marinade.
In Cuba and in Cuban food, as it was and as it is, there are two things that are not often seen: creams and milk products and cheeses in heavy sauces. These products, popular in Europe and North America, are expensive to purchase and often difficult to store in Cuba. Pork and chicken are relatively plentiful, fresh and inexpensive.
We strive to provide recipes including the foods enjoyed by the average families, seen every day as we may travel about the beautiful countryside.
For convenience, we often suggest the use of prepared foods such as canned beans, canned tomatoes, dried beans and frequently we suggest low-fat chicken broth. We use dried/dehydrated spices and dried fruits. We always prefer fresh vegetables, but frozen, defrosted, are great substitutes. We often take liberties with Worcestershire sauce, catsup and things such as celery salt, all of which are not often seen on the island in those forms. Some of the Cuban treats are difficult to prepare outside of Cuba or areas with a large Latin community due to authentic ingredients not being available. Here, we suggest commonly-available substitutes.
Ajiaco, a thick soup made with pork along with different kinds of edible vegetable roots and stems, is the national dish of Cuba. The taste depends on the vegetables and the seasonings chosen by the cook. Other typical Cuban dishes include:
