We welcome the Hernandez family, who have graciously offered to add a Cuban booth to this year’s event! Rudy and Carmen have recruited the whole family to help, from 7 year old Ella to 97 year old Grandfather Alfredo!
Rudy, Carmen and their children Aidan (9) and Ella (7) moved here 2 years ago from Miami. Rudy was born in Cuba and came to the United States when he was 4 years old. They are lucky to have family in this area. Carmen’s mother Maria is also a native of Cuba and resides here, along with Grandfather Alfredo, who came to the United States 50 years ago.
When you talk to this family about food, you see their faces light up! They all love cooking (and eating!) traditional Cuban food– a must for any family gathering! This year, they look forward to offering 2 of their favorites, a Cuban and a Pork Panini style sandwich. The Cuban Sandwich has a combination of swiss cheese, roasted pork, ham, mustard and dill pickles pressed and melted in a special bread. You can also choose the Pork Sandwich, a favorite with Mojo marinated Cuban roast pork and onions!
Make sure to stop by the Cuban booth to say hi to the whole family. You’ll want to get your sandwich before they’re gone! Thanks Rudy and Carmen… what a great addition to our 2017 International Food Festival!
