Cook Brazilian: 100 Classic, Creative Dishes

Author(s): Leticia Moreinos

Latin America

Like its soccer and samba, beautiful beaches and carnival, Brazilian cooking is an explosion of colour and flavour. Leticia Moreinos - spending her childhood in Rio's paradise neighbourhood Ipanema - grew up eating Caldinho de Feijao all day and drinking fresh coconut water on the beach, and was therefore homesick for this culture when she moved to New York to work in some of the world's top restaurant kitchens. Cooking for herself, she went back to the Brigadeiros and Baba de Moca of her childhood but found that her palate had changed. She began to reinterpret classic Brazilian dishes as a chef, making them a little lighter and less sweet for our health-conscious age and a lot easier to recreate at home. The result is this groundbreaking collection of easy-to-make, easy-to-love recipes. With simple techniques and well-explained directions, dishes like Salmon no Risotto de Caipirinha (Salmon over a Caipirinha Risotto) and Bolinho Quente de Doce de Leite com Sorbet de Coalhada (Molten Dulce de Leche Cake with a Sour Cream Sorbet) will simply become part of your everyday cooking repertoire and bring a welcome Copocabana-born breeze into every home kitchen.
