It brings back our history and great memories of Key West.

Coming from six generations of Conchs, born and raised in a small town of Key West, where families are very connected, author Bonnie Villareal Padron and her family shared many of their recipes, which for them are none like any other and nowhere to be found but in their small island. She shares some great memories of her hometown as well as their recipes in “Conch Cooking” (published by Xlibris).

This book shares wonderful recipes and the history of the great island of Key West and its unique people. There are pictures and recipes of Key West as it was when Villareal Padron and her family were just growing up. This cookbook is not only about recipes, but also about the great people born in Key West and all the great times they all had together.

“This book is based on simple family traditions, bringing families back together,” Villarreal Padron says. “It brings back our history and great memories of Key West.”

Through the history and the people of an island and the recipes they shared in “Conch Cooking,” Villareal Pardon hopes readers will learn to enjoy the simple things life has to offer.
