Brazilian cooking is a pleasurable melting pot of Portuguese, African and Indian influences, all mixed up together. In this book, the author Ofelia Ramos Anunciato not only introduces traditional Brazilian dishes, but also culinary specialties from the different regions of her country.
A choice of over 70 recipes has been produced with something to offer for every taste and occasion: Entrees, fish and meat dishes, desserts and sweet dishes, bread and baking. Essential to every dish are traditional ingredients such as cassava flour, quijo-de-siri and chayote. This book, however, suggests alternatives for ingredients that are either not available or are hard to come by.
