Since I'm a fan of exotic food from all around the world, my interest has lately directed itself to Brazil and it's culinary art.
I was watching a documentary on tv about this country and it's mouthwatering food/culinary history, and I realised that this part of the world was unknown to me, so I decided to enquire a little about traditional Brazilian dishes...
I've found many great recipes which in some sense remind me of the Southern Asian and Caribbean cuisine (cocunut milk, coriander, tomatoes, limes, dried shrimps, peanuts, tapioca, etc...).
Tomorrow, I'm going to cook my first Brazilian dish (Spicy meatballs with orange and ginger sauce) and I'm really looking forward to tasting it!!! Well, actually, I've already cooked a side dish (" Arroz Brasileiro") which I loved, so that'll really be my second incursion on this yet undiscovered and vast land that is Brazilian cookery.
If anyone could recommend me detailed and complete books about Brazil and it's food, then you are welcome to contact me!... Thanks.
