THE CUBAN AFFAIR
Simon & Schuster
What's not to love in Daniel "Mac" Graham MacCormick's life? At 35, he lives in Key West, owns a 42 foot charter fishing boat (which has a large bank loan), was an infantry officer in the Army and returned after 5 years with a Silver Star and 2 Purple Hearts.
With looming debt, he agrees to take on a job for $2 million for a 10 day fishing tournament to Cuba which he suspects has more involved than an outing that could include anti-Castro groups.
He learns that his charter involves obtaining $60 million in Cuba. His client's grandfather stashed the money in Cuba prior to fleeing from Castro's revolution. With the "Cuban Thaw" taking place between Havana and Washington, they are now in a race to find the money before someone else does. Mac will either be rich or not at all.

Food & Wine Editors as well as celebrity chefs such as Daniel Holzman of NYC's Meatball Shop shares meals in a cookbook that literally share menus that you can create! You'll find a classic recipe with two sides, wine pairings, tips for leftovers and technique for the dish in an easy to use cookbook!
In addition to the stunning imagery, the techniques are clearly illustrted. We're excited about the Meatball Shop's Meatballs in Tomato Sauce (the leftover option as well as the technique to make the uniform balls is great to know).
Ted Allen's Pan-Roasted Salmon with Tomato Vinaigrette is another winner that's perfect to enjoy as the temperatures continue to climb. The technique of learning how to remove salmon skin is another sill that's worth knowing (or being able to share at your next cocktail event.
