Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban

Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban is the latest effort of Glenn Lindgren, Raúl Musibay, and Jorge Castillo – three brothers-in-law with a passion for Cuban food and culture. This is a unique cookbook by three hombres who love Cuban culture and food so much that they created the tremendously popular website iCuban.com: The Internet Cuban. Millions of people have already discovered these Three Guys and their recipes. Now the rest of the world can too, in this delightfully witty and entertaining new cookbook complete with a Cuban food glossary, personal stories, and hilarious asides that represent the Three Guys’ own distinctive brand of humor. With amazing family recipes, Miami influence, and food secrets from Cuba, The Three Guys share twenty years of experimentation, refinement, and a lot of trial and error that have made these recipes uniquely their own. The book is lavishly illustrated with 75 full-color photographs by photographer Nancy Bundt. The Three Guys From Miami have made several appearances on the Food Network, ABC Family, The Travel Channel, National Public Radio, and Public TV. They are frequent sources of Cuban cooking tips and advice for professional chefs and amateur cooks all over the world. Their recipes have appeared in several major newspapers and magazines. The Three Guys from Miami started small, but quickly became known for their great parties, centered on whole pigroasts or an elaborate Cuban-style paella. In fact, the Three Guys' "Paella Cubana" was featured on "Tyler's Ultimate" with Tyler Florence on the Food Network. Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban is a fun, and easy-to-follow guide that will let even inexperienced home cooks turn out some great Cuban meals. The recipes are easy to prepare and you'll actually enjoy the entire process. Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban has been extremely well received by food editors and writers all over the United States. The Chicago Sun Times says, "I swear I could almost feel the Miami sunshine beaming down on me as I read through the book… The photography is beautiful and inviting, making one ready to hop on a plane to Miami. For most of us that's not possible, so this cookbook is the next best thing." The Miami Times says, "With Colombian arepas and Nicaraguan tres leches in the mix, the title might more accurately be 'Three Guys From Miami Cook Miami,' but there are plenty of Cuban standards here, from picadillo and arroz con pollo to rice pudding and flan. We even get the Elena Ruz, a turkey, cream cheese and strawberry-jam sandwich named for the customer who ordered it at a 1930s Havana restaurant. Best of all, we get the good-natured byplay -- Jorge: Someday we'd like to have a sandwich named after us. Raul: Probably something with plenty of spice and a lot of tongue! -- that makes these guys such good company." Where Miami reports, "They’re not famous chefs, but Glenn Lindgren, Raúl Musibay and Jorge Castillo know their food. In the just-released Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban, the Miami natives offer up the best of Miami-Cuban specialties-from the Papa Hemingway Daiquiris to empanadas de carne asada to arepas to their own version of paella Cubana that even novice cooks can try at home. Best of all, the cookbook is chock full of colorful pictures of the marketplaces, landmarks and people that make Miami so indefinably unique." And the Library Journal provides the last word, "In their first book, they present many of their favorite recipes and stories. Lindgren is the writer, but the three share a somewhat wacky sense of humor (as documented in some of the photographs here). However, their book includes a lot of culinary and social history, along with 100 recipes for both traditional Cuban dishes and more contemporary variations. Numerous color photographs and an attractive design add to the appeal. One of the few recent titles on the subject, this is strongly recommended." The Three Guys recipes represent three lifetimes of enjoying Cuban food, and a long process creating, collecting, and refining the recipes they love. They have combined the best ideas from these great chefs with their own special twists to create the "tried and true" recipes they like best. Everyone, from the most amateur home chef to the seasoned professional will enjoy this excellent and unique Cuban cookbook.
