Crossing Into Cuba: Two Chicagoans Take Us On a Cultural and Culinary Journey

Presented by Dan Goldberg and Andrea Kuhn
Authors, Cuba! Recipes and Stories from the Cuban Kitchen

Friends Dan Goldberg and Andrea Kuhn fell in love with Cuba at first sight, on their first visit three years ago. They decided to write a cookbook to celebrate the spirit of the country and visited Cuba three times during their journey to document a place they have grown to love so much. Their book, Cuba! Recipes and Stories from the Cuban Kitchen, details their adventures, the food they ate, and the recipes they were inspired to create back home.

Join them as they chronicle their travels in Cuba and taste some of their favorite dishes like crispy- twice cooked lamb, to the Mojito Cake with Rum-Infused Whipped Cream. Their book is filled with colorful portraits of the home kitchens in Havana, that they were invited into with big smiles and open arms. 

They also took to the road and visited Hershey, Cuba, where they met a wonderful woman who lives and cooks on a old train for the men that repair trains. Their next stop was Vinales, where they visited many organic farms, and shared many a mojito along the way.
 
Please join them as they guide us through Cuba with a colorful slide show, stories,anecdotes and of course the delicious food.
