From the first time they met, she remembered: & # 39; He came in with an accordion in shorts, I thought he was naked, you couldn't see … & # 39;
The Cuban-American star stole the show at the Olivier Awards on the weekend – and before returning to London, she explained how much she looks forward to eating.
In the city to also launch On Your Feet: The Story of Emilio And Gloria Estefan, who will play in the West End this summer, she admitted that she is a big fan of British cuisine.
She cites the Metro newspaper as follows: & # 39; Bread sauce, where did they hide this sauce? I love steak and kidney pie and many other things that I could not eat because I was on a diet.
Pride: Gloria presented her timeless beauty last Wednesday, when she and her husband Emilio were honored with the Gershwin Prize in Washington
& # 39; But bread sauce, I looked it up, how to make it, because I'm going to make it for Thanksgiving for my family. & # 39;
Gloria & # 39; s musical has already proven to be a big hit on Broadway in the US, and she is excited to bring him to the UK from June 14 to August 31 in the London Colosseum.
She still has fond memories of a visit to the UK in the 1980s and 1990s, but she joked that she is still frustrated with her 1985 Conga.
She added: & # 39; Conga was released simultaneously, a group called Black Lace released a song titled Do The Conga. Black Lace has given us a rating. & # 39;

The number – which broke into the top 10 of the American Billboard Hot 100 and was a big hit worldwide – only reached a peak in 79 in the UK, while the popular number of Black Lace reached number 10.
Gloria's song can be heard in the musical, which looks at her career and 40 years of marriage to Emilio.
The couple met when they started singing in 1976 in his band The Miami Sound Machine and after falling in love, they tied the knot in September 1978 and have been together ever since.
The Dr. Beat singer – who has two grown children with Emilio – believes that the couple always laughs together, is why they have lived so long.
She said earlier: he has left places, forgot that I am with him and he always gets names wrong. Do you know what he calls the queen of the soul? & # 39; Urethra Franklin. & # 39; He keeps me laughing and that's why we lasted 40 years. & # 39;
Excited: she and her 66-year-old husband were honored for their contribution to the music industry last week
