The Brazilian TableBook - 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#65533;a, pequi, hearts of palm, and Dend#65533; 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#65533;a Way, Gil#65533; Puff Pastry Tart, and Guava Paste Souffl#65533;.
The Brazilian Table was a Julia Child First Book Award finalist and a finalist for the Gourmand International Cookbook Award.
