Format: Paperback
I bought the book for the cover. I read several cookbooks a year. When I first read Miami Spice I was interested in what was going on with fusion/world cuisine on the South East Coast. The book proved to be a loadstone of information, recipes, and best of all, love for the cuisine that Steven Raichlen ate, cooked and reviewed. This love is what makes the book so important for anyone interested in the culinary movements of the last ten years in the South East.
I have cooked my way through most of the book, stolen a few recipes and adapted as my own, and heartily recommend it to anyone who loves to cook. This is a book for people who enjoy a great read. Really. It is well written and the recipes work.

Format: Paperback
Of the recipes I tried I really loved them, but I found that many of the recipes were complicated and time consuming. The only complaint I have is the there should be more entrees especially in the meat section.

This cookbook is just fantastic. It contains a broad range of recipes inspired by the flavors of Miami, from cocktails to deserts. The instructions are clearly written. Most dishes take only a short time to prepare and all of the results have been great. This book is for people who love richly flavored food but do not want to spend their entire day preparing it.

This is one of my favorite cookbooks. This has everything from appetizers to desserts. I especially like the special citrusy marinades and dressings. Some of the recipes are totally authentic Latin recipes while others are based on the original dishes. Everything I've made from this cookbook has been wonderful!

A cookbook written by a critic? hhmmmm... May 27 2004

An excellent resource that has never steered me wrong Feb. 23 2005
By Jack Dempsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
That about sums this up. This book has it all. Very simple recipes with fantastic results. No pictures really, but that's not really a fault in my book. I've tried many, many of the recipes in this book (as well as in the author's "Healthy Latin Cooking" book) and have never been disappointed. As a spearfisherman, his recipe for Florida Lobster was truly appreciated by me and it is downright excellent. I have used it much to the delight of family and friends.

Definitely, if you enjoy latin-fusion type of cooking, and don't have the tweezer-food mentality of cooking (hello French Laundry and Nobu), then this book is for you. Get it without hesitation and you will be delighted. There's a reason why it was a Julia Child award winner.

Terrific recipes, but Ingredients unavailable to most May 2 2001
By tmorton@ch2m.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having tried several recipes that turned out to be absolutely superb, I drooled at the prospect of working through the rest. I mean, the churascos served with the 3 sauces, and the chicken adobo served with the papaya and black bean vinegarette are in the top five of my all time favorite dishes (see the Barbecue! Bible for the other 3). But as I came across recipes calling for pompano, conch, grouper, the lychees, etc., I wondered how I would ever find these ingredients in Colorado. Quite simply, I can't. I've gone as far as I can go with this book...of the twenty or so recipes I've made out of this book, a half dozen have been incredible, another half dozen very good, and the rest just so-so. Quite a few are more calorific than I'd like.
