The article discusses the culinary context found in "Las comidas profundas" by Antonio José Ponte. The text begins with the narrator describing the situation of a man in Havana who has just eaten the only bread of the day. Nevertheless, the book does not focus on his hunger as it do other texts, such as "Lazarillo de Tormes." The text also lacks the presence of actual food, including it, rather, as a part of the textual details. The text is further compared with other books focusing in on culinary aspects which also touch upon the subject of the "Período Especial" in Cuba.
