When I think of Cuban food I think of my mom’s cooking, endless pastelitos from endless shops in Miami, and the music that’s always playing in the background…
One plate of Arroz con Pollo with Celia Cruz and I’m immediately transported back home.
There are thousands of restaurants in New York, but I still find myself craving an authentic Cuban meal- one without the frills but with the flavor. A meal that understands the familial roots of our cuisine and celebrates our culture as it is.
Sofrito y Salsa is a monthly Cuban dinner inspired by the food, drinks, and music of Cuba and Miami! These are the recipes my mom has shared with me, and now I want to share them with you.
