Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro stopped by the Latina offices earlier this week, and talked exclusively to Latina.com about his Latin roots, his love of arroz con gandules, pernil and pasteles, and why he can't get enough of Spanish girls. Plus, the reality star dished on the "mean Coquito" his family makes, and explained why Snooki isn't proud of her Chilean heritage.

I have to admit that one of the best things about being Cuban is our cuisine. Recently, a renowned chef and instructor based in Las Vegas sent me a message on Facebook to get my thoughts on food accessibility on my native island.
I sighed and told him that the best place to get the real deal and authentic Cuban food is actually here in the States—not at a restaurant; but rather in a first generation Cuban home. That may sound biased, but from my experience, homemade food always comes with a high dose of true skill, love, nostalgic memories and coveted secret ingredients.
