Award-winning chef Guillermo Pernot and acclaimed author Lourdes Castro unveil authentic Cuban recipes for home cooks, celebrating the bold flavors, creative techniques, and unique inspirations of the country’s finest paladares.

Pernot and Castro explore Cuba, collecting dishes and stories that reveal a vibrant contemporary cuisine. Each dish has been adapted from the best private restaurants from Old Havana to Santiago de Cuba and Pernot’s own celebrated restaurant, Cuba Libre, marrying traditional foundations with modern influences.
