First modern cookbook from Brazil,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alex Atala: D.O.M (Hardcover)
This is a long waited Cook book from the most acclaimed restaurant in Brazil. This is a great book, the photos are stunning and the book itself is well presented. There is a lot to look at and there is a lot of new ingredients to learn. If you are a professional chef and looking for new ingredients and ideas this is THE BOOK, if you are just a home cook its no use for you.
The reason why I have given 4 star is because, the ingredients listed in the recipes does not show the complete spec of the plate that is presented in the photograph.Like the garnish is not explained properly, or what is the different color items that is additional on the plate and not in the ingredients list. The glossary is not very detailed, it would have been much better if there was a detailed glossary. You will need to keep your Google chrome open to check almost all of the ingredients. The methods are too simple, and really gives you the doubt, WHAT ? IS THAT IT !?!!?!!
This will make a great gift to a wanna be professional chef.
