Sylva library to hold discussion on Cuban cooking and culture

Written by 

The Jackson County Public Library in Sylva will host Mindy Guillama-Ridriquez and Raul Rodriquez for a discussion of Cuban culture and food at 7 p.m. on April 26.

Mindy will demonstrate making picadillo, a traditional dish in Cuba and many other Latin American countries. It features ground meat (usually beef or pork) and vegetables.

Raul will discuss the rich history and culture of his native Cuba.

Mindy was born in Havana but moved with her family to South Florida at the age of 4 to escape political persecution. She owns Mindy’s Bakery in Sylva and is also a full-time student at WCU.

Raul was also born in Cuba but did not come to the United States until he was 18, planning to return to Cuba after completing his education. However, political turmoil in Cuba prevented his return, and he met Mindy while in Miami. He is also a full-time student at WCU.
