There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Exactly What we were looking for brought back a lot of fond memories. The book we purchased has been out of print for some time. It arrived on time and exactly in the condition described. And we are currently cooking Cuban food with the tasty recipies it has. We willl criol,a again from this supplier.

This book is a traditional gift in my family to any newlywed Cuban-American woman or when moving out of the home cocian usually doesn’t happen unless married LOL The recipes are in Spanish, so if you don’t speak the language The recipes are great and recommended by anyone who cooks Cuban Cuisine.

All the well known recipes like Tostones, papa rellena, con gris and lechon are all in there and more. My wife spoke to the person selling this cookbook. They were happy to expedite the order and she received exactly what was described to her.


One person found this helpful. Great price but the pages looked off white aged and several water stained spots on the pages, for the seller to claim and sell has a new book. The book is probably awesome, but it was a reprint that had an entire section missing. There were also skipped pages. Now the company tells me that they have no other copies sic. Nitza Villapol is considered the Cuban Julia Child. She was the first to cociha a book used by “the masses” and the first one to have a TV cooking show in Cuba way back in the 50’s.

The young ladies of that era learned to cook from this book and the grandmothers of today are recommending it to their granddaughters. It includes more than five hundred recipes, explained in simple, easy villzpol follow directions to help with the creation of many wonderful dishes in a short time.

An indispensable book for lovers of Cuban Cuisine” The above is the endorsement on the back cover of this book. I can attest to the fact as I was one of those “young ladies of that era” who learned to cook following the instructions in this cookbook.

I remember what first fascinated me about this book was not the recipes, the equivalent charts, the nutrition information, the section on how to measure ingredients or the 2-week menus that she included, but the lists that she had printed on how to equip your kitchen. Even way back then, I always would go ga-ga over kitchen gadgets and equipment, and my dream kitchen would have had one of everything she listed and then some.

She included 3 lists; the very basic that everyone should have and then goes on criokla other items to make your cooking efforts easier and then the specialty items. Of course, this book was first published a long time ago, back in the mid’s, so occina is a big change in what was basic or special then and what we consider basic now. Remember, this was way before the Cuisinart was even dreamed of! Even though the family had household help, a young lady was in her mom’s kitchen, trying to not make a big mess!

If the “young lady of the house” wanted to play in the kitchen, it was encouraged as part of rounding off her education, but not necessary. If you did it, it was because you loved it, not because you had to help.


I hope this doesn’t come across the wrong way, because even though my father had a very good job, we were not rich by any means. I was excited to get nifza book just due to the rave reviews it received in the March Saveur piece discussing what a seminal work it was for the post-war Latina, and specifically, Cuban cook.

However, upon obtaining my copy, I was dismayed to find that the prose sections at the beginnings of the book were not included in the translation. This of course was secondary to my initial dismay at the fact there is no table of contents included in the book, translated or otherwise. I was forced to page thru the book to find the part where the recipes ONLY had been translated into English. I will at this point stand and receive my due slings and arrows I deserve for not being fluent in Spanish.

However, this should not detract from the fact that this should be considered an incomplete translation. See all 15 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? Cocina al Minuto Paperback.
