I really can’t say that I have a sweet tooth, but these wonderful Cuban desserts jumped to mind for the challenge theme this week…sweet. They were prepared by the chefs at the NH Krystal Laguna Hotel, now known as the Iberostar Mojito, in Cayo Coco.
I have heard so many people complain about Cuban food that it breaks my heart. I honestly think the food is very tasty and there is always a generous selection to choose from. I will admit I am not a fussy eater, the only food I really don’t care for is raisins; unless of course they are in their pre-dried, freshly stomped, liquid state (wine).
Some of the Cuban cooking methods, like using butter to make an omelette or fry their fish, is not something I would choose to do at home. But I’m not making a lifestyle change, I am on vacation for a few days and enjoy the fact that someone is cooking for me.
I do not particularly like the taste of the milk in Cuba so if I had cereal for breakfast I would put yogurt on it instead; I do that at home anyway. There is always a delicious option available to make an enjoyable meal whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I know everyone has their preferences, especially when it comes to food, but even my children love Cuban cuisine. Perhaps that says something about my cooking who knows. *smile*
