  • About

Many of the Spanish settlers who immigrated to Cuba between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries were from the province of Galicia. Caldo gallego is a hearty peasant dish that remains popular in Cuba today.

If you have a pressure cooker, you may use it instead of the Dutch oven to speed up the cooking; see the instructions in the recipe for Frijoles Negros (Classic Cuban-Style Black Beans).
