Cuban cuisine is a fusion of Spanish, African, and Caribbean cuisine. Cuban recipes share spices and techniques with Spanish and African cooking, with some Caribbean influence in spice and flavor. This results in a unique, interesting and flavorful blend of the several different cultural influences, with strong similarities with the cuisine of the neighboring Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. A small but noteworthy Chinese influence can also be accounted for, mainly in the Havana area. During colonial times, Cuba was an important port for trade, and many Spaniards who lived there brought their culinary traditions along with them.
The word RUMBA comes from the Spanish word ” rumbear” which means to party . Rumba is a generic term covering a variety of musical rhythms and associated dances. It contains both African and Caribbean influences due to the importation of African slaves to South America and the Caribbean.
