“Will not only be greatly enjoyed by current aficionados of Caribbean cuisine but will win over a new audience.”—Jacques Pépin

Yellow rice, papayas, guavas, pina coladas, adobo, cilantro, and recaito—color, spirit, and sun-splashed flavor identify the national cuisine of Puerto Rico. A Taste of Puero Rico is the first major cookbook in years to celebrate the vibrant foods of Puerto Rico, from hearty classics to today's new, light creations. Culinary professional Yvonne Ortiz captures the very best of island cooking in 200 recipes for every course. Adapted for the modern kitchen but completely authentic, these wonderful dishes, bursting with tropical tastes, bring a rich and diverse culinary heritage to your table.

About the Author:

Yvonne Ortiz is a regular contributor to Gourmet, Cook’s Illustrated, and the New York Times, as well as to El Diario/La Prensa, the country’s largest national Spanish-language daily newspaper. She was born in New York City, raised in Cayey, Puerto Rico, and now lives in Jersey City, New Jersey.

From Library Journal:

Until recently, Puerto Rican cooking has been taken for granted or overlooked here. Now, with Oswald Rivera's Puerto Rican Cooking in America (LJ 11/15/93) and this new book from an accomplished food writer, the situation has begun to change. Ortiz, a Puerto Rican native and French-trained former chef, includes classic and regional specialties (despite the island's small size, distinct culinary differences are evident from one locale to another), recipes that reflect Spanish and African influences, and contemporary dishes from Puerto Rican cooks on the mainland and the island, as well as her own concoctions. Rivera's book emphasizes home-style cooking; although Ortiz includes the traditional dishes, too, her book is somewhat more sophisticated. Highly recommended.
