Puerto Rico has a rich culinary history influenced by France, Spain, Africa and Taíno Native American. If you’re ready to cook and eat like a local, renowned San Juan chef Jose Santaella’s new book, Cocina Tropical, is packed with vibrant and diverse dishes from around the country. From salt cod fritters to suckling pig, Cocina Tropical is a one-stop shop for the best cuisine Puerto Rico has to offer. When slow-cooking season hits, braise a pot of island-style veal stew.
