Summary

Summary

Combining the cultural traditions of Spain, indigenous Cubans, Africans, and various other immigrants, Cuban cuisine is simple and filled with flavor. Rich spices such as garlic, oregano, and cumin combine with fresh produce, staples such as rice and beans, and pork or fresh seafood to fill Cuban menus. Although the people of Cuba are divided along class lines, they enjoy the same food--Salsa Criollos, Frijoles Negros, Tostones, and Cerdo Asado.
