The Las Tunas region lies in the south east of Cuba. Here, grow the largest sugar crops in the Caribbean. The country’s vital export is still harvested manually, by the “machetero’s” who use machetes to cut the cane. Argelio Marrero Pérez has been working the fields for most of his life.

What’s cookin’ is about traditional culinary recipes from different European regions.
