  • About

A tambor is a Cuban shepherd’s pie. Tambor is an everyday family kind of dish, and there are many versions with different toppings and fillings. This one, made with fresh, young corn as a topping and tender diced chicken in savory tomato sauce as a filling, is a favorite of mine. Serve it as a main course, accompanied by a crisp cucumber salad and warm, crusty yuca bread rolls.
