Cuba's Culinary Revolution
The old joke goes: Cuba’s three great successes are healthcare, education and social welfare and her three great failures are breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is no longer the case! A wave of small restaurants and young energetic chefs who are busy producing creative and tasty cuisine has arrived. The old staples of rice, beans, pork and chicken have not been forgotten but are featured, almost as a nod to the past. Small family or privately run restaurants have sprung up across Cuba, offering homemade, tasty and fresh food in authentic surroundings . In a phenomenon that is revolutionising the Cuban dining scene, dine on a balcony or in the antique interior of a historic building.
