One of my best friends just had a baby. Hooray for Nicholas!!
So this weekend we brought over a Cuban feast to share and fed both of our families. I'm trying to remember how this came about. I think I was raving about the Cuban pop-up at La Balena last month and asked my friends whose birthday was up next. I was inspired to make a Cuban birthday dinner for someone. Anyone! Jenn piped up: Nicholas is up next! True.
So, as soon as he was born...and as soon as they wanted a dinner delivered, I brought over a Cuban feast. Stay tuned for the recipe posts, but it was all delicious. I will definitely be making these dishes again soon. Here was the menu:
White Bean Soup
Pernil Asado Con Mojo
Mojo-Marinated Pork Shoulder Roast
Mazorcas de Maiz en la Barbacoa
Grilled Corn on the Cob
Pastel de Mango con Tres Leches
Three Milks Mango Cake
