Not only does it have what are considered the classic Puerto Rican recipes, it also has a wonderful chapter on rum drinks.
These recipes feature ingredients that seem exotic to those of us in Wisconsin. Seems like every other recipe contains plantains. Many of the recipes are for more than four people. And they seem like very physical recipes. That is, there are lots of active verbs in these recipes, like “pounding,” “stirring constantly,” with the italics added by the author. Classic recipes!
