The Cuban Table is here!
I am beyond thrilled to announce that The Cuban Table: A Celebration of Food, Flavors, and History is hitting both real and virtual shelves today. Since our wonderful editor BJ Berti let us know that the finished copies were in the warehouse and on their way a few weeks ago, I imagined receiving them – usually in over-saturated, Doris Day technicolor. The books would run straight off an assembly line, into a box, and onto a truck that would drop them at my door. I’d coolly but swiftly rip it open, hand out the books, and and it would be champagne all around. So many wonderful things have come from this book in the past few weeks that I just needed the one thing that would make it real. The anticipation was maddening and when the books didn’t come, I took to sad-eying the UPS man when he failed to deliver. Finally, just a few hours shy of today’s release date, the books arrived and…I wasn’t there. I came home from a (very un-Doris Day-like) cardio kickboxing class and found the box on my coffee table with a lime green NEW TITLES sticker splashed across the top and my yorkies yapping furiously around it. It was later than I’d expected but exactly on time. Most importantly, it was very, very real.
I can’t wait to order my copy!
Felicidades “Hungry Sofia”! ! !

Congratulations! I’ve seen how hard birthing a cookbook can be!
Yum that looks amazing, are you going to have it as an ebook as well??
It is available on iTunes and Kindle! Thanks!
As another Cuban-American also transplanted outside NYC, I could TOTALLY relate to this book! Unfortunately, both my parents are deceased and I never got around to getting recipes. This book is WONDERFUL! I loved it so much, I bought copies for my niece, who was recently married, and friends who love to cook. I have found my 14 year old son reading the stories within the book. Well done!
From those of us who can relate to our rich Cuban culture and food- Thank you for this book!
Thank you so much for writing! I’m so happy that you and your son are enjoying!
I am delightedly reading the Kindle edition but might still need to purchase a hardcover for the photos! It is wonderfully detailed and a work of art!
I’m so happy that you like it that much!
Woo hoo, just received mine and it looks delectable. I can’t wait to prepare the “croquetas de jamón”. I love the pictures along with the stories which accompany them.
Wonderful! Please let me know how they turn out!
