One of my heros of Cuban cooking - Nitza Villapol. One of my most treasured cook books is an original edition of Nitza's Cocina al minuto from the 1950's. While many argue that her assistant was the true home economist and inventor of the recipes, Nitza's communication style and can-do attitude won the hearts and minds of Cubans. I love her spirit and positivity. She did her level best to help ordinary Cubans "invent" meals for their families during the special period and did it with grace.
