Welcome to My Cuban Food blog

In this first post, I want to toast to the success of this blog.

I have been a blogger for many years covering topics such as Latin entertainment, writing, finance, and spirituality but this blog is very special to me.  My Cuban culture has always been a very important part of my life, and Cuban food brings back the fondest memories. Cuban food also unites millions of Cubans around the world who left their country to seek a better life elsewhere. Most Cubans who live outside of the island live in the Miami metropolitan area, however, there are Cubans living in all parts of the world.

And of course, there are many Cuban-Americans who were born in the United States who have kept the Cuban food traditions that their parents taught them. It has been almost 62 years since the Cuban revolution in 1959, and millions of Cubans have migrated to the United States and other parts of the world. They have brought their traditions and Miami continues to be the capital of the Cuban exile community and where you will find the best Cuban food anywhere.

Famous Cuban restaurants like Versailles, La Carreta, Havana Harry’s, Havana 1957, Islas Canarias, Sergio’s, Mojitos, Little Havana, Las Vegas, and Latin Cafe 2000 are some of the best ones that you can find in the Miami area.

I want to see an explosion of Cuban restaurants opening all over the United States, where people can savor the amazing taste of a good Cuban sandwich, or delight over a succulent Cuban roast pork meal accompanied by moros rice, yucca, plantains, and then finishing it off with a heavenly flan and a Cuban cafecito.

So, with that, I will be toasting to the success of this blog with a cafecito:

To honor all of the Cubans who sacrificed their lives to come to the United States and start a new life for themselves, their families, and future generations.  To thank them for bringing and maintaining the Cuban traditions which include the traditional foods. And to honor the new generation of Cuban-Americans as they will make sure that these traditions are kept alive.

And just as important, to honor YOU, the reader of this blog regardless of your ethnicity, so that you can come to appreciate Cuban food just as much as we do.

Men are like stars; some generate their own light while others reflect the brilliance they receive.  ~   Jose Marti, Cuban Poet and National Hero
