Puerto Rico : True Flavors


Wilo Benet blew me away at first meeting: he is an exciting innovator in Puerto Rican cuisine. True Flavors is more than a terrific collection of recipes; it is a guide into the very heart of Puerto Rico's amazing cuisine. True Flavors is a classic.

- Juliette Rossant, author of Super Chef


His light and refreshing interpretations of the traditional recipes of Puerto Rico make them accessible and inspiring for today's home cook. This inspsiring book is filled with Chef Benet's infectious enthusiasm and the stunningly beautiful photographs are a feast for the eyes.

Chef Michael Lomonaco, Porter House, New York

Puerto Rico : True Flavors is the accumulation of Wilo Benet’s mastery of Puerto Rican cooking, his expertise in preparation, creativity, and finely-honed skills. Merging the tastes he grew up with, from his mother’s “from-scratch” cooking, his grandmother’s well-loved recipes, lunchtimes at public school, street vendors’ fritters and roasted chickens, and all the other everyday-food influences of Puerto Rico, together with his exceptional culinary talents, he brings those historic true flavors of the Island into the 21st century.

You’ll learn how to make authentic Basics (adobo, escabache, mojito); Fritters (alcapurrias/stuffed yautía, bacalaítos/salt cod fritters); Soups such as sancocho/root vegetable & beef; Meats like carne mechada/stuffed pot roast; Fish (camarones al ajillo/shrimp in garlic sauce); Plantains (amarillos/sweet plantains, arañitas/plantain spiders); and Desserts (flan/custard pudding, dulce de lechosa/candied papaya), to name just a few of each.
