Miami, Florida

Miami, Florida, has the second largest Cuban population of any city in the world, behind only Havana. It’s not surprising, then, that meals in Miami should have a Cuban accent. In fact, South Florida and Cuba share a common history: both lands were at one time claimed by Spain. Their close geographic proximity, the rush of Cuban immigrants into South Florida, and the wealth of foods indigenous to both places have eased the adaptation and evolution of Cuban cuisine in and around Miami. In South Beach, where clothing is optional (or often so minimal as to seem that way), the hip and happening are seeing and being seen, basking in both the Miami sunshine and the glow of their own fabulousness amidst trendy bars and spendy restaurants in a beautiful setting dominated by soft pastel Art Deco architecture -- much of the district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

About me:
I worked in Medical Research until just recently. I'm now staying home to have our first child - at 40!! Have two labs that I love to death and they love to eat as much as I love to cook. There is nothing I love more than creating a great meal for my husband, family and friends. Cooking is relaxing to me.
