Cuban Food

Cuban food is not intensely spiced but rather it tends to be delicately flavored. Cuban cuisine is not complicated by a myriad of cooking techniques and intricate sauces. Most of the recipes are slow cook numbers and little of it is ever fried. Sure Cuban food shares recipes with the other countries, great recipes like Paella, flan, et al, but for the most part it is uniquely Cocina Cubana!
