This is the newest edition of a classic Puerto Rican cookbook originally published in 1956. The book presents the traditional dishes of Puerto Rico, prepared in the traditional ways, using the authors' original text which addressed cooking as a job requirement of the housewife of the times. It is a valuable source for historic techniques, ingredients and the cultural aspects of food.
The newest version includes a modern layout to make the book easier to read and use as well as color photographs of the dishes.
