In Brazil: A Cook's Tour, Christopher Idone, author of Glorious Food and Glorious American Food, takes the reader along on a culinary journey through this rich country, explaining the food and the lifestyles of the varied regions of Brazil. Starting in Sao Paulo, then moving on to Rio de Janeiro, Bahia, the Amazon, and Minas Gerais, Christopher explores the marketplaces, the home kitchens, the shops, and the eating establishments of the diverse areas and their different culinary influences. One hundred recipes and more than 125 four-color photographs feature the authentic national dishes of Brazil, such as Feijoada, Tutu a Mineira, Picadinho, Empanadas, and myriad sweets, as well as modern Brazilian culinary triumphs such as Shrimp and Heart of Palm Casserole. Detailed recipes make it easy to re-create these dishes in an American kitchen, and an extensive source guide shows you where to obtain the unique ingredients of this delicious cuisine.
