Three Guys from Miami
No, he's not Cuban, he doesn't speak Spanish (at least not very well) and technically, he isn't even from Miami—but he sure spends a lot of time there! Glenn grew up in Minneapolis and first came to Miami in 1984. Here he fell in love with this tropical city with its friendly people and unique Cuban culture. With more than 30 years in the writing business, Glenn is the driving force behind the website and the guy who actually writes the cookbooks.
A native Cuban, Raúl came to the United States via Spain in 1980. As a full-time Miami resident, Raúl is known for his love of fishing, his great parties, and his mastery of the Cuban pig roast. Like Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea, Raúl frequently braves the ocean waves in the Florida Keys with his small fishing boat. Just don't call him old. He insists that he gets a little better, but never older, every year. Raúl and his wife Esther have two married children, Onel and Onix.
Although born and raised in Cayo la Rosa, Cuba, Jorge spent his first years in the United States in Iowa, where he mastered the English language and learned to love corn on the cob, root beer, and Cookie's Barbecue Sauce. Jorge is the artist of the group, at least when it comes to food. Unlike his two brothers-in-law, he has always had an eye for artistic food presentation. Jorge has lived for the past 13 years in the West Kendall area of Miami with Mary and their two daughters, Mariel and Allison.
