Cuban Cuisine with the Estefans

The Estefan's do everything Cuban. From music, restaurants, and now a cookbook. Although Gloria has done 2 children's book, this is a book with both Emilio and Gloria sharing kitchen secrets, which are served at the couples Bongos Cuban Cafe's in Miami, Orlando and Mexico.
Estefan Kitchen (Penguin Books Group) reveals recipe of Cuban favorites like: ropa vieja (shredded beef), frijoles negros (black beans), and flan de coco (vanilla custard with coconut). Grandma's recipes passed on through the Estefans.
Next up Emilio's book on how to make millions. Well maybe not, but the power couple do know how to make a buck, while keeping traditions alive.
