Check out Chef Guillermo Pernot’s New Cookbook

Chef Guillermo Pernot of Cuba Libre Restaurant just released his second cookbook entitled Cuba Cooks which features recipes of all your favorite Cuban dishes.

In addition to great recipes, readers will also find illuminating and insightful notes about Cuba’s culinary heritage. More than just a cookbook, Cuba Cooks is really a love letter to Cuba.

Some of my favorites from the cookbook include hog fish ceviche with blackeye peas, malanga tacos with eggplant salad, spinach and manchego cheese fritters, and chicken croquettes with cachucha aioli. For dessert, you will find everything from Churros con Chocolate to Guayaba con Mousse de Queso Crema.

Cuba Cooks makes a great holiday gift for the foodie on your list!
