The Cuban Table

Cuban Table_revised_02

I always had a hard time dropping my pencil and turning in my work as a little girl and it’s not much different now. It has been almost two years since I first posted about The Cuban Table, my collaboration with food photographer Ellen Silverman, but I could have happily kept tweaking and polishing it forever. Luckily it wasn’t up to me which is why I have this lovely cover to share, an actual ink and paper bound book on its way, and an official release date from St. Martin’s Press to look forward to this October!

The Cuban Table


It’s hard to believe, but my blog turns four years old today.  I usually look back in my anniversary posts, but I have some really exciting news that’s all about moving forward.  A little more than a year ago, I started working on my first book proposal in collaboration with the amazing food photographer Ellen Silverman.  Many, many, many drafts later…it was acquired by St. Martin’s Press, and, if all goes well, The Cuban Table will be published in the fall of 201

My family and friends have been incredibly supportive, but I have to thank the proposal’s fairy godmothers – Isabel, Harriet, and Meg (who I just realized have actual fairy-type names) – for seeing us through the process.  Until now, its only existed in a maybe-hopefully-someday part of my life.  Now that it’s happening, I can barely keep my heart in my chest, my head on my shoulders or my feet on the ground.  It’s hard to imagine where this will take me, but then I couldn’t have known four years ago that a post about wanting to eat my Christmas tree would have brought me here.
