Join Fernanda de Paula and Shelley Hepworth on their culinary exploration of this beautiful and diverse land, just in time for the World Cup.
Brazil is a nation that loves to celebrate. Go to any football match, family barbecue, after-work drinks or the famous carnival street parades, and the playful atmosphere is contagious. This festive spirit carries over into every arena of life, including the kitchen.
This Is Brazil gives you a taste of both Brazil’s rich heritage and the warm embrace of its people, with fun, easy-to-prepare dishes perfect for sharing with family and friends.
Try salt cod fritters and cheese balls enjoyed in urban Brazil’s many bars and botecos; classic meals like moqueca bahiana (seafood stew), feijoada (pork and bean stew) and arroz com mariscos (rice with shellfish); and finish with indulgent treats like coconut mousse and Brigadeiro chocolate truffles. With all the colour of Carnival and recipes designed for sharing, This Is Brazil will take you there in no time. So make yourself a cold caipirinha and enjoy cooking the Brazilian way!
