Movie Info

Diverse cuisine is rarely counted among the cultural phenomena for which Cuba is celebrated; popular notions of Cuba as a placed defined by deprivation doesn't help. A richly comprehensive remedy for this misconception, Cuban Food Stories visits every province in the country to sample a culinary legacy grounded in so much more than rice and beans. Paragons of Cuba's characteristic adaptability and creativity, the film's subjects--which include an artist turned restaurateur and nuclear physicist turned fisherman--create mouth-watering meals with ingredients such as coconut milk, cacao, lobster and river shrimp. Until now devoid of franchises and the fraught agricultural practices that often come with a place at the global economic table, Cuba is undergoing a period of sweeping change, making the preservation of its culinary heritage a priority--and making Cuban Food Stories a must-see.

  • Eye-opening in every way, especially for those who may think that Cuban food is just rice and beans, the film makes extensive use of Soto's engaging voiceover narration.

  • Don't pay attention to the "rottens". This a glorious film that is in the spirit of Anthony Bourdain but much more centered on the lived experience of ordinary Cubans. A true delight.

  • Cuban Food Stories is about as ambitious as a film with such a banal title would suggest.

    August 29, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Cuban Food Stories is a gorgeous love letter to the people and country of Cuba...a real triumph overall.

    May 11, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's hard not to feel that something is lacking, that some throughline is missing, that the key narrative entree was lost amid the vibrant but not-quite-filling courses.
