The Brazilian TableeBook - 2009
BRAZIL-EXOTIC, SENSUAL, MYSTERIOUS-mingles pleasure with high energy, and its cuisine is no different. The recipes of The Brazilian Table frequently blend the native ingredients of manioc, cacha & ccedil; a, pequi, hearts of palm, and Dend & ecirc; palm oil with the rich cultures of Portugal, Africa, Japan, the Middle East, and that of the indigenous population to create complex tastes that define this region of the world. A sample of the extraordinary cuisine includes Tucupi Duck Soup, Fish Paupiette with Crabmeat Brazilian-Style, Papaya Galette, Chicken Xim-Xim, Coconut Custard Bah & iacute; a Way, Gil & oacute; Puff Pastry Tart, and Guava Paste Souffl & eacute; . Authored by master chef Yara Castro Roberts-one of Brazil's most forthright advocates of its lifestyle and cuisine-this intimate look at the regions of Minas Gerais, the Amazon, the Cerado, and the Bah & iacute; as from a food perspective not only introduces one hundred delicious recipes but also provides an in-depth cultural lesson on the regions and their unique foods.
