Cuban anyone?

I just found a newly launched cuban website from an area near Chicago that features natural foods made from authentic recipes. http://www.oldhavanafoods.com/

Nice website but, unfortunately, no recipes. I love Cuban food and this is one of the best websites I've found: BEST Cuban Recipes!

You can find recipes

This is a difficult website to navigate, it weaves products, recipes. family stories and the history of old Havana into a single Cubano experience.

If you take the time to wrap your head around the many facets of this website, it is easy to find something to like. As I knew nothing about Cuba, or Cuban cooking when I discovered this site, I find I not only like the music, I learned more about the ancient City of Havana than I ever wanted to know.

Unfortunately not all of the pieces to this puzzle are on the same page.
You will find recipes at Old Havana Foods and also on Facebook.

Old Hvana Foods is near Chicago. Whether or not there is a brick and mortar store is something I have yet to discover.
