About this title

Synopsis:

I have seen, and own many cookbooks from my island written in Spanish and English. I have asked many people if they would purchase this type of cookbook. Their responses have demonstrated how very little is known about the culinary aspect of the Caribbean in particularly, my island. The knowledge of the culture and food is remote to many, and the complexity of the recipes preparation could be overwhelming. After much research on this issue, I decided that the book should be written reflecting the Caribbean cooking as being easy, healthy, savory, and attractive to the American taste, but without omitting the essence of the food culture background.

Tropical Cooking Made Easy is a cookbook with a distinctive exotic taste like the island itself. It is a book with unique recipes as its history. The ingredients in the recipes are a blend of the heritage behind the people of the Island of Puerto Rico: Spanish, Indian, and African. The recipes welcome you to explore a world of tropical cuisine full of flavor and zest.

Tropical Cooking Made Easy differs from other cookbooks for the compilation of noteworthy information, such as the origin of island cuisine, the where, and how of the ingredients used in all recipes, history, illustrative photos, information on herbs and condiments, definitions, items with their scientific name, nutritional and natural values and inspirational quotes to ponder while you cook. Each recipe is well organized. It's easy to read, easy to follow, easy to make, with no confusing abbreviations. Instructions are numbered, avoiding errors in preparation. The ingredients are accessible at grocery stores throughout the states. The index is user friendly. Each recipe includes Trick of the Trade, and Traditional Tips to clarify instructions.

Pigeon Peas Rice, Galician Broth, Paella, Spanish Style Pork Roast, Piononos, Spanish Style Steak With Onions and the sinful delightful Spanish Custard dessert, are only a few of the many succulent recipes in this book.

The flavoring and the rich aroma that comes from a mix of zestful ingredients and exquisite meals will keep you making these recipes over and over. Tropical Cooking Made Easy will transcend your cooking experience as if your kitchen was located in the tropics.
