BRASILIAN BARBEQUE & BEYOND

Oi carimba! I don’t even know if it’s the right phrase or even the right language but boy oh boy does this book evoke a serious need to speak in strange tongues.
Beautiful seasonal produce grilled and plated.

It’s pure Brasilian, pure like the morning sun with your cup of strong coffee, you can taste the tempting forest, smell the icing sugar beaches and feel the fires burning, happy voices cackling into the dark hours of the night. Flashes of flowers, feathers and flames.

Celebrating the love of meat.

This is not just a recipe book, but a Brasilian food bible for the non-Brasilian. It’s stuffed like a Matambre with goods and guides. Everything on traditional meat cuts, beautiful stories of faraway places, staple treats and fresh ingredients, the Brasilian way of do’s and don’ts and of course the traditional oh-so terribly exotic recipes, all guiding you ever so gently to the bright light.

This book is perfect timing as the soccer world cup kicked off in Brasil and is in full swing. I must admit, I am not the most enthusiastic soccer fan, but this beautiful book may very well temporarily turn me to the beautiful game. So, there is absolutely no time to lose. Light the fires, shake and ‘sluk’ those Caipirinhas and let’s feast!
