When Chef Gordon Ramsay came to South Florida seeking classic Cuban cuisine he called The Stuffed Cuban. This was for a show on Fox he was hosting called the "F Word". Then he challenged me to a cook-off using my menu choice. I chose to compete with him with Stuffed Tostones! I chose a classic Cuban roast pork and he chose a classic English ground lamb. Over 100 guests showed up at Domino Park in Little Havana. Classic Cuban beat Classic England!
A year later, Chef Tyler Florence came to Miami seeking the best whole roasted pig in town and he called The Stuffed Cuban! We roasted a whole pig using my roasting box on the beach at Key Biscayne for a food completion shows he hosted. The contestants used my pork to sell in different varieties all over Miami!
Shortly thereafter, the national television program called Edicion Especial asked for a local area chef with expertise in Cuban food to host a cooking segment. I made stuffed tostones with garlic shrimp and yuquita fritas with cilantro sauce!
