This weekend was dedicated to making a Cuban feast with traditional food from my heritage to share with my friends. My husband and I cooked Friday and Saturday to prepare the menu. The appetizers were ham croquettes and tostones (fried green plantains). The frying was easy with our new fryer. The main course included black beans, rice, roast pork, and an avocado and pineapple salad. Dessert was flan. I made lots of food to have leftovers with my parents on Sunday. It was a great cooking weekend! Most of the recipes have been passed down through the generations. The only recipe that is not a family “secret” is the delicious avocado and pineapple salad from Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban. Here are additional Cuban cookbooks: A Taste of Old Cuba, Estefan Kitchen, and Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban.
