Explore the tropical flavors and rich culinary traditions of America's island paradise. Puerto Rico, a land of gorgeous beaches and luxurious resorts, also boasts a rich culinary culture with a mix of influences: Spanish, African, Taino (Native American), and French. For adventurous mainland cooks in pursuit of exotic flavors, this book offers exciting new territory, and for Puerto Rican descendants everywhere, it pays tribute to the beloved homeland. Jose Santaella presents foods that only a local would know: the tradition of lechon-spit-roasted suckling pig-in the mountains near the rainforest, or dumplings of mashed plantains with land crab hand-rolled in ramshackle shacks along the shore. Among the book's more than one hundred recipes are classics like Salt Cod Fritters with Pique and Fried Whole Snapper with Pineapple and Cilantro Salsa, as well as contemporary creations, such as Avocado and Papaya Salad and Curried Goat with Lime and Orange Rice. Cocina Tropical captures the flavors and spirit of this truly enchanting island.

"One of the most beloved Puerto Rican chefs, Jose Santaella, offers a beautiful homage to Puerto Rican cuisine in his lushly photographed and well-researched cookbook, Cocina Tropical. Learn how to make his favorite boricua recipes, from appetizers and desserts to morcillas (blood sausages) to the perfect plantain mofongo." -NBC News

Jose Santaella's book captures the local flavors of his eponymous San Juan, Puerto Rico restaurant. It will likely expand culinary territory for many chefs and provide a springboard for new ideas." -FoodFanatics
