From hearty soups to flanes and other desserts, this book covers the range of Latin American cooking in the U.S.A. There are chapters on poultry and meats, but being a vegetarian I enjoyed the chapter on rice and beans, with Cuban. Chilean, Puerto Rican and Jamaican versions of the dish; all of them delicious. I also enjoyed the chapter on tamales, empanadas and other turnovers.
