Event Details

Featured as part of The Dalí Museum’s Hispanic Heritage Month programming:

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we invite you to join us for a special talk on one of the most delectable bites of food history: the Cuban sandwich. The lecture will include a special Cuban Sandwich tasting by Chef Chuck Bandel of our very own Café Gala. 😋

Based on the research for their book, “The Cuban Sandwich: A History in Layers,” Andrew T. Huse, Bárbara C. Cruz, and Jeff Houck will discuss the complex and fascinating history of this dish. 🥪 In addition to exploring the sandwich’s Cuban origins, they will also sort through improbable vintage recipes, sift gossip from Florida old-timers, and wade into the fearsome Tampa vs. Miami sandwich debate (is adding salami necessary or heresy?) to reveal the social history behind how this delicacy became a lunch-counter staple in the U.S. and beyond. 🌎
