Contemporary Cuban Cuisine
Culinary Historians of San Diego presents Richard Feinberg, who will enlighten us on the ways Cuban cuisine has been influenced by the dishes of Spain, France, Africa, and China, as well as the broader Caribbean Basin. He will also explain how it has blossomed within the last decade after the regime turned from the Fidel Castro era nationalized restaurants with standardized fare to permitting private restaurants, mostly within homes, with seats ranging from 12-50. These paladares or private restaurants have been mushrooming of late.
