Format: Hardcover
I have never been so torn about a recipe book. It's like a culinary version of the legendary split personality of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. One the one hand, this book contains the type of traditional Brazilian dishes that I was after. On the other hand, the author presents us with contemporary recipes that sparkle and stun with the sheer volume of creativity and sophistication they reflect; but it is clear from reading them that this style of cooking (elegant as it no doubt is) lacks the charm, the heart, and the soul of the true Brazil. It will always be reserved to those gourmet temples people like Claude Troisgros established in Rio and Sao Paulo, and a culinary elite of advanced foodies - forever separated from the food of the ordinary men and women of Brazil.

In other words, I was not prepared for such an array of European-style cooking with a Brazilian veneer. Fusion is not really my thing. And yet, Leticia singlehandedly sold some of those recipes to me.

I made the moqueca (Brazilian fish stew) from this book, and it was wonderful - tasted like the real thing I had eaten in Bahia. Make sure you get dende oil though! Looking forward to trying another one of the recipes.

Great book and very good condition. A good addiction to our small gastronomic library. I particularly enjoy the fluid explanations and the conversational tone the writer lends to the text. Pictures are good although not always a true representation of the dish recipe on the same page. Recipes are a mix of traditional and more upbeat and modern dishes which is always a good idea. The history behind each dish is interesting, although a bit shallow. But hey, this isn't a History book. I believe the writer could have mentioned that some of the dishes relies on ingredients that are not easily found, or may be protected for environmental reasons, since we have many vegetables in Brazil that are on the edge of extinction because of over exploitation. A bit more attention could have been given to the spelling but all in all it is a nice and colourful experience through an essential part of the Brazilian culture.

All the recipes I have tried so far in this cookbook have lived up to my expectations of truly delicious Brasilian food as experienced throughout my life. A real must for anyone who enjoys Latin American food. The recipes are easy to follow and uncomplicated to make.
