Description: This cookbook is a gastronomic exploration of South America's largest and most populous country. Modern Brazilian cuisine is the result of the contributions of several peoples, most notably the native Amerindians, African slaves and their descendants, and, of course, the Portuguese colonizers.
The indigenous inhabitants of modern-day Brazil contributed products native to the land, such as corn, cassava, and fish, as well as cooking techniques for grinding and roasting. The Portuguese settlers incorporated these methods and foods into their diet, and introduced Portuguese staples, including smoked sausages, olive oil, and wine. These culinary traditions were further fused with the introduction of such ingredients as palm oil and okra, brought with the African slaves, and in the twentieth century, European immigration yielded pasta and German pastries, among other delights.
Brazil: A Culinary Journey is both a voyage through the country's five regions, as well as a tour in recipes of the nation's history.
