Amai Zing book! It really translates the spirit of Rio! You have the amazing recipes, that are not complicated and then there is i for about history and culture. It really brings memories from Rio when you open it!! Book arrived one day before expected!
I bought the book to give as a gift and ended up buying one more copy to myself. The information about the dishes, ingredients and even about the city are quite accurate and reminded me of many, many, many, many forgotten things, places, tastes,... Many good memories from my family and childhood in my beloved Rio. :-)
The BEST Brazilian cookbook I have ever bought! The recipes are amazing, clear to follow and prepare the dishes; the ingredients' amounts are good, the dish comes out perfect! Not only it's exotic, but above all it's health oriented, with healthy ingredients. Chef Leticia Moreinos Schwartz has the best approach to Brazilian cuisine! I recommend it highly. I bought her other book, the recipes are amazingly great as well! A must for your cookbook collection !!!
