Art of the Cuban, a History Center Member Event

On Thursdy, June 20th, USF Librarian and author of The Columbia Restaurant: Celebrating a Century of History, Cuisine and People, Andy Huse and Columbia Cafe Executive Chef Scott Dixon, led an enlightening and delicious program about Tampa's signature dish, the Cuban Sandwich.

Thirty History Center members took part in this one-of-kind event, which gave them the opportunity to build their own Cuban Sandwich from scratch.

Huse, an expert on local culinary history, began the session with a history of the ubiquitous sandwich, which originated in Tampa's Ybor City.

Following Huse was Chef Dixon, who walked everyone through the delicate art of building their own Cuban Sandwich while sharing a few of the Columbia Restaurant's behind-the-scenes secrets.

The History Center's member events provide intimate learning experiences for our members and their guests. Visit our website for membership information.
