Cameron Diaz is a successful actress known for her roles in movies such as The Mask, My Best Friend’s Wedding, There’s Something About Mary, and Charlie’s Angels.
She has retired from acting and is now focused on promoting her organic wine company, Avaline, which she co-founded with a friend.
What many may not know is that her late father’s family is Cuban, and her ancestors had originally moved from Spain to Cuba. Later they settled in Ybor City, Tampa, Florida before moving to California, where her father was born. With her father and paternal grandfather’s influence, she learned how to cook Cuban food and it is a special part of her life.
Cameron and her late father
Recently, Cameron was featured in the video series by BESE, where the focus is on different types of cuisine, however, the sounds of cooking are more important than the person doing the cooking. That is why she is whispering in the video.
Here in this video, she shows us first how to prepare and cook a delicious Cuban palomilla steak. Finally, she makes an amazing mojito made with wine from her organic wine company.
I love the fact that a Hollywood icon like Cameron enjoys Cuban food as much as I do.
