"Takes the reader on an interesting culinary journey." -Key West Citizen

"The foremost authority on Puerto Rican cooking is a silver haired, stylish, and warmly hospitable woman named Carmen Aboy Valldejuli . . . [her books] are considered today to be the definitive books on island cooking."-New York Times

"Its recipes are authentic, well tested, and exactly written." -Cecily Brownstone, food editor, Associated Press

Puerto Rican Cookery, now in its twenty-third printing with 130,000 in print, has become the standard reference on traditional native cookery (cocina criolla). According to the San Juan Star, "the cookbook is seen and is more likely better read in some homes than the religious tome. . . . [it] is considered a primer for beginning cooks . . . a textbook for home economists and it is a guide for the gourmet as well."

The recipes in this book are as bewitching as an off-shore breeze, plumbing the mysteries of native dishes in accurate and easy-to-follow details that assure the success of every recipe-whether it is for Pickled Chicken or Sweet Potato Pudding. In Puerto Rican Cookery, the late Carmen Aboy Valldejuli traces the development of traditional native cookery and reveals secrets of the essence of Puerto Rican cookery-keymark to fabulous island delicacies. Native Taino petroglyphs illustrate this handsome book.
