Um! That aroma in the air is from sofrito, a rich blend of native herbs and spices that fill every Puerto Rican kitchen. The scent and sounds of sizzling garlic, onions, ajíes dulces and recao makes your mouth water. Puerto Rican cooking is distinct, eclectic and varied using a combination of condiments that give our food that very special aroma and flavor without being spicy.
Puerto Rican cuisine is a unique amalgamation of cultures, and recipes. The native Taíno Indians, the Spanish conquistadores, African and U.S. have all influenced what has come to be known around the island by locals as Comida Criolla. As such, even though Puerto Rican food has its roots in Caribbean and Spanish cuisine, it is its own creature.
