EVENT: John Verlinden, TO COOK IS TO LOVE: Nuevo Cuban: Lighter, Healthier Latin Recipes Book Signing, Cooking Demonstration, and Tasting
WHEN: Thursday, February 19th, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm WHERE: Trident Booksellers & Cafe Come join Author John Verlinden at Trident Booksellers & Café on Boston’s Newbury Street to sample delicious Cuban cuisine and explore Cuban culture through food and stories. The free event will be followed by a book signing of Verlinden’s cookbook TO COOK IS TO LOVE: Nuevo Cuban: Lighter, Healthier Latin Recipes. The interest in Cuban culture and cuisine is increasing, especially in light of the recent news that relations between Cuba and the United States are improving. John Verlinden’s TO COOK IS TO LOVE is a timely homage to this often under-appreciated culture. «President Obama’s recent announcement that the U.S. and Cuba would begin normalization of relations was historic for our nation, and is thrilling for our family both here and on the island. While there’s still much to be worked out, and the process will evolve over many months and years, I’m so excited about this first step and believe it will lead to a better future the Cuban people. Imagine the amazing possibilities as Americans and Cubans reconnect as good neighbors after over 50 years of estrangement,» says John Verlinden. The menu for the evening will include samples of traditional Cuban fare such as Sopa de Platano (Plantain Soup) and homemade Empanadas (meat or vegetable filled turnovers). John “Chef Johnny” Verlinden was the co-owner with his husband, Oz Mondejar, of Mucho Gusto Café & Collectibles®, the first Cuban-American restaurant in the heart of Boston. Diners fondly remember “Mucho Gusto,” which was located just a few blocks from Trident and which received numerous awards during its lifetime, including the “Best of Boston” by Boston Magazine, “Boston’s Best” by Improper Bostonian, and “Top 50 Hispanic Restaurants in the U.S.” by Hispanic Magazine. John now works as a personal chef, writer and educator. When he isn’t cooking, writing about, or teaching children, adults and health professionals how to make his healthier Nuevo Cuban cuisine, he’s engaged in one of his other passions – consulting with businesses, advocating for humanitarian, health, and political issues in his community, or bringing friendship and material goods from the U.S. to the people of Cuba. John resides in Brookline, Massachusetts with his husband of 29 years. About TO COOK IS TO LOVE: Nuevo Cuban: Lighter, Healthier Latin Recipes:
