    I am from the Caribbean and it sounds like Mandy’s book clearly details the Caribbean’s influence on South Florida cuisine. Love her passion for food and history!

    This book would be Sooo awesome! As a native of Miami and as a person who volunteers with kids with cooking and gardening. This would be an asset to teach them of the local foods and cuisine. I would love to win this book to rotate with families in our class whose kids attend Title 1 schools. Fingers crossed, this book would touch a lot of people:)
