The Three Guys From Miami are brothers-in-law. They are also good friends who all like to cook and party. They have a popular web site on the Internet. You might want to check it out- www.iCuban.com By 1983 the three guys had combined their passion for food and their talents and now they have created this cookbook for us.

The recipes are somewhat like Mexican food, but with a Cuban twist. I requested that my family try out one of the "Picadillo" recipes (hint to the chef in our house!). There are a couple of these, which are just basically Cuban hash, but sound really good. The Cubans use green olives and cinnamon added to their recipe to make a unique flavor. I think that "Papas Brava" which is Spanish Potatoes and is a simple recipe but it sounds grand with added cloves and bacon.

The book is filled with glossy pictures and minute directions. There is a helpful glossary and some sources where you might buy the ingredients online. It's a very handsome cookbook to add some food tastes to your kitchen.
