The indigenous inhabitants contributed products native to the land, such as corn, cassava, and fish. The Portuguese settlers incorporated native techniques and ingredients, and introduced Portuguese staples, including sausages, olive oil, and wine. The culinary traditions were further fused with the introduction of such ingredients as palm oil and okra brought with African slaves in the twentieth century. European immigration yielded pasta and German pastries. The largest nation in South America, Brazil is home to vast rain forests, pristine tropical beaches, the Amazon River, and one of the region's most interesting cuisines. The recipes presented in Brazil: A Culinary Journey provide a glimpse into the surprisingly diverse repertoire of Brazilian cooking, from the heavily African-influenced cuisine of the Northeast to the Southern cookery, which has been shaped by European immigration. More than 130 recipes range from Feijoada, Brazil's national dish of beans, rice, and various meats (in its many regional variations), to lesser-known dishes, such as Shrimp and Bread Pudding, Crab Soup, and Banana Brittle. Complete with b/w illustrations, photographs, and maps.

    Lots of delicious recipes to try and great references to the origins of the dishes, separated into chapters per region of Brazil. A great resource for those who want to learn more about Brazilian cuisine and how to make signature dishes.

    I downloaded this cookbook from Amazon. A lot of the recipes look quite interesting, especially many of the seafood recipes. I also like that this book includes a lot of reference material in order to learn more about the recipes, Brazil itself, etc. Overall, a great cookbook. The recipes are not ones that I have seen published many times before and appear to be easy to understand and to follow. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in Brazilian culinary practices and food I downloaded this cookbook from Amazon.
