Margarita's Recipe Box


My grandmother, Margarita Saavedra Ajamil, was an energetic, brilliant and creative woman.  In the 30's my grandmother owned her own party planning and catering business.  She cooked all of the dishes herself and was celebrated for her Cuban culinary skills.  She left me her prized recipes, carefully assembled over many years.  These yellowed cards contain her handwritten secrets for each recipe.  Recreating her recipes in my kitchen transports me back to my home in Miami.  For her, the recipes addressed her desire to recapture the feeling and smells of Old Havana.  Her love for Cuba fed her culinary inspirations and it shows in the recipes

I am now sharing with you.
