    Just heard an interview with you on NPR a few days ago and had to buy your book. I’m Brazilian but grew up in Miami and only dated Cuban boys, which meant I ate a lot of delicious Cuban food. I swear I am now a little bit Cuban myself and love the food just as much as I love Brazilian food.
    Now living in San Diego I’m always trying to recreate Cuban dishes since there are no really good Cuban restaurants here. I’m excited to receive your book.
