Pinar del Rio, Cuba #SaturdaySnapshot #WeekendCooking
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.
Join me next week — I’ll share some of what I learned about agriculture in Cuba for the Weekend Cooking folks.

Wow look at those gorgeous views. I’d likely have gone for the rum option. 🙂
I am so glad you are posting photos of your trip. Going to Cuba would be a great trip. I love the raised bed gardens and the squash soup.
It looks very exotic, and the scenery. My Snapshot is at https://thebooktrunkblog.wordpress.com/
What beautiful views! Squash soup is one of those things I never thought I’d like….until I actually tried it! 😉
Your post is making me hungry! The squash soup looks amazing, as do the starchy vegetables. Was one of them yucca? I imagine the food tasted especially delicious in such a lovely setting.
My Saturday Snapshot post features a tiny library.
Tasting the food and drink is one of the best parts of travel, I think. Thanks for sharing.
What a lovely spot for lunch and a refreshing cocktail/mocktail. 😉 It looks like a fascinating trip–I’ll have to check out some of your other posts. Thanks for sharing.
I admire all organic gardeners. Just for my own garden and fruit trees and bushes, it is a lot of work to stay organic. These garden beds look fabulous!
With or without – what a choice. Have a great week. Cheers
Was glad to see squash soup; Cuban starchy veggies! Looks similar to veggies we see here in NYC in Dominican neighborhoods. Raised bed garden and view look beautiful!
I like hew richness of each photo – so beautiful. What a great experience you must have had.
The place looks gorgeous. And the squash soup sounds yummy!
I’m curious about the herbal cocktail! Is it a traditional recipe or something new for the cocktail crowd, I wonder? Great photos! You must give a fantastic travelogue program!
I am SO enjoying your photos of Cuba, Joy – what an amazing experience!
Looks like a lot of culinary delights on your trip – thanks for sharing!
