Synopsis

Tastes Like Cuba An Exile's Hunger for Home by Eduardo Muchado

Born into a well-to-do family in Cuba in 1953, Eduardo Machado saw firsthand the effects of the rising Castro regime. When he and his brother were sent to the United States on one of the Peter Pan flights of 1961, they did not know if they would ever see their parents or their home again. From his experience living in exile in Los Angeles to becoming an actor, director, playwright and professor in New York, Machado explores what it means to say goodbye to the only home one's ever known, and what it means to be a Latino in America today. Filled with delicious recipes and powerful tales of family, loss and self discovery, Tastes Like Cuba delivers the story of Eduardo's rich and delectable life - reminding us that no matter where we go, there is no place that feels (and tastes) better than home.
