Encompassing the history, the heritage, and the future of Puerto Rican cuisine, Ortiz traces the influence of native Taino culture, Spanish conquerors, African slaves, and American merchants. Dispelling the myth that Puerto Rican cooking begins and ends with rice and beans, she presents over 200 recipes that reflect the culinary diversity of the island itself.
