Cuban cuisine is a fusion of Spanish, African, and Caribbean cuisine. Cuban recipes share spices and techniques with Spanish and African cooking, with some Caribbean influence in spice and flavor. This results in a unique, interesting and flavorful blend of the several different cultural influences, with strong similarities with the cuisine of the neighboring Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. A small but noteworthy Chinese influence can also be accounted for, mainly in the Havana area. During colonial times, Cuba was an important port for trade, and many Spaniards who lived there brought their culinary traditions along with them.---------------------------------------------------------------------------- La gastronomía de Cuba es una fusión de la cocina española, africana y caribeña.

Existen influencias de los esclavos africanos que cultivaban la mayoría en las plantaciones de caña de azúcar, a pesar de que en la mayor parte de las ciudades constituyeron la minoría.
