We're working on a new show for Public Television that will feature us cooking some great Cuban dishes and show us traveling to some of our favorite Miami locations.
On our new show we also will reveal all of our secrets including the best places to go in Miami: the best restaurants, shopping, entertainment, music, fun, and other attractions.
We'll show you how you can experience Cuban culture with our humorous and lively guide to the Cuban side of Miami.
The closest thing to Cuban is the Mojito Café (now called La Casa Del Mojito) and the Mojito Café – yah, we know it's pretty confusing. The food and drink recipes at both restaurants all have their origins in the work of Luigi Valenciana, who with two partners, started a second outlet (the Mojito Café on Western) in 2003. Unfortunately, the partnership dissolved some time ago – hence two restaurants and two different names.
However, the food and the atmosphere at both restaurants are very much alike. OK, neither restaurant is strictly Cuban, but if you are sick of Seattle Mexican food and are desperate for something more tropical, either of these restaurants will fit the bill. The restaurants actually draw on the cuisines of several Central and South American countries to bring you a very nice eating experience.
La Casa del Mojito is a tiny little restaurant on the North side of Seattle, not far from the University. There are only eight or nine tables with a few tables outside if you are lucky enough to be in Seattle when it is NOT raining.
The Mojito Café is located near the offices of the Seattle Post Intelligencer. The Newer Cafe Mojito does have one thing going for it – more space, although the parking situation isn't great at either restaurant.
Right now we're trying to line up a few sponsors. If you know anyone in a position to sponsor a Cuban cooking show on public television, please help us out! Someone involved with Cuban products would be ideal.
The management at WPBT liked the show we did for them in June. Now if we can line up a few sponsors, we're on our way. (Send us an email!)
Although this is a pilot project, it's not too early to start asking your local PBS Television station to carry our new show.
To make our show a reality, we need to line up stations and sponsors! If you love our website and want to see more of us, please help.
If you'd like to see our new weekly cooking program, "Three Guys From Miami Cook Cuban," in your part of the country, call your local PBS Television station and ask them to broadcast it in your area!
We have also made the Daily Top Ten Cookbooks several times this month and have been consistenly in the TOP 100 for Cooking, Food, and Wine – just about every day since June 5!
In addition to both regular and diet cola with key lime, they also have a unique "mojito" flavor. Add your own rum and you have two classic Cuban drinks. Find out more...
