Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Sabor Cubano
Sep 5th, 2016 - National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated every year from September 15th to October 15th to recognize Hispanic and Latino culture, and the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States. It is a celebration of culture, history, the struggles, and challenges overcome by the Hispanic/Latino population.
This year National Hispanic Heritage Month is preceded by the first commercial flight from the United States to Cuba in half a century, due to the reestablishment of diplomatic relations with Cuba and lessening of travel restrictions for U.S. citizens. JetBlue will launch their inaugural commercial flight to Cuba on August 31st, 2016 out of Fort Lauderdale, FL and touch down in Santa Clara, Cuba.
National Hispanic Heritage Month commemorates the cultures and contributions of Spain, Mexico, Central & South America, and the Caribbean. But this year, let’s give it a little bit of Cuban flavor, to celebrate Cuba opening its border to its northern neighbor! Hola Cuba!
Host a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration with some sabor Cubano in your, or your client’s, office, with our three favorite, Corporate Caterers’ Cuban-inspired dishes*:
- Arroz con Pollo a la Chorrera – A Cuban take on the original Spanish dish. This is a deliciously soupy dish that consists of fragrant yellow rice cooked with vegetables and juicy chicken that is stewed until it is so tender it practically falls off the bone!
- Lechon Asado – Succulent, oven roasted pork cooked in a tangy, citrusy marinade that is pulled apart before serving along with traditional Cuban congri, or rice and black beans.
- Ropa Vieja – A mix of shredded, braised beef, juicy peppers, and sharp onions that are combined to create a robust, flavorful stew that will seduce your taste buds, served over aromatic white rice to enhance the flavors of the meat.
And of course, don’t forget the maduros, because what Cuban meal is complete without sweet and delicious fried plantains!
