  • About

I first developed a taste for croquetas during the years I lived in Madrid and was delighted to find that they are just as popular in Cuba. Making croquettes is an elegant way to generously feed a crowd with a small amount of cooked meat or seafood. From Havana to Miami, ham croquetas are a favorite snack or light lunch. They are often sold at snack bars and Cuban bakeries.
