The Duchess of Cornwall is ‘not sure’ about the food, but our man in Havana – or at least a frequent visitor – begs to differ
The restaurant critic AA Gill once described Cuban food as not just bad, but as the very opposite of food. It was, he said, “unfood”.
It’s a view of the Caribbean nation’s culinary skills that has spread like beetroot juice, and which seems to have coloured the Duchess of Cornwall’s expectations. Last week she revealed not only that she and Prince Charles will visit the island this spring but that while she was looking forward to the music and architecture, she “wasn’t so sure” about the food.
