Cuba

What, no black beans and rice? Here’s the menu for the Obama-Castro state dinner in Havana

The Cuban government hosted a state dinner for President Barack Obama and other U.S. government officials Monday evening at the Palace of the Revolution.

Each table had the printed menu — and it didn’t look anything like Versailles or La Carreta. Not even a croqueta:

Shrimp mousse under kisch supreme with cream of mojito;

golden cream soup flavored with Caney rum accompanied by slivers of ham;

Traditional pork garnished with baby tamales with plantain chips;

Trio of Grandmother's sweets.
