Pinar Del Rio, Cuba #SaturdaySnapshot #WeekendCooking

By Joyweesemoll @joyweesemoll

Today’s post features my favorite meal during our trip to Cuba. I’ve written before about the food for our first two days in Cuba — delicious but with a certain sameness about the offerings. The variety of food increased when we arrived in Havana.

Our most varied meal was served at an organic farm that we visited during a day trip from Havana to the west of the island, in the Pinar del Rio province.
