"Cuban Cuisine" offers distinct taste with rampant use of citrus (i.e. sour orange, lime, lemon), tomato, vinegar, onion, garlic, peppers, white wine or beer (depending on region and dish), raisins and olives/capers to flavor almost every savory dish. This combination of flavor often results in complex and flavorful meals with opposing sweet vs. salty vs. acidic components. Contrasting flavors and the infusion of citrus are common themes in Cuban culinary practice.

"Cuban Cuisine" is a fusion of SpanishAfrican, 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. 

Today, Cuban cuisine has evolved further through the influences of the Cuban exile community in Miami. The traditional Cuban dishes have been readdressed by chefs influenced by nouvelle cuisine and American tastes. The result is that Cuban cuisine is now a fusion of the many cultures that live in Miami. In this manner, people from all over the world are experiencing the wonderful fusion of flavours that is Cuban cuisine.
