Having lived in Brazil for a couple of years, I was hoping to find recipes that my housekeeper regularly cooked for me. There is no recipe for flan, avocado pudding, or chocolate mousse in the dessert section. And the most serious omission is no recipe for stroganoff! That is everyone's favorite dish besides feijoada.

Also, there are a few recipe that you would never make at home, like a recipe for churros. Seriously? Why would you ever make those at home?

It almost seems like the author saved the best, most classic recipes for another book. I think the title of the book should have been "100 Creative Recipes" as it omitted too much of the "Classic." Disappointing...
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 !!!
I am a retired metallurgical engineer and worked in Brazil for 10 years starting in 1975. During that time, being a curious guy, I frequented restaurants weekly. I really liked Brazilian dishes and compiled a list of my favorites while I lived there. I have to admit that this book has everyone of my favorite dishes, from sea food to meat to beans to salads to desserts. In my opinion, the majority of classic Brazilian cuisine is represented in this book, be it feijoada, moqueca de peixe or others. Many thanks to Dona Leticia.
I married a Brazilian, he has always raved about certain recipes his mother would make and she would show me how to make them but she would just throw in ingredients until it looked right. Without recipes, it made it really difficult to emulate the flavor. This book, while not exactly the way his parents make it, gave me the basic bones of the recipes so that I could then cook the dishes he loves.

The recipes work well with ingredients readily available in most grocery stores and some of the recipes I even enjoy more than the ones my husband originally tried to have me make.

This book is so great I have purchased on for my mom and my sister.
Many great recipes. I would not consider all of them "Authentic Brazilian" culturally specific, but they are adapted for modern times. Basically what is served in more tourist areas in Brazil. Still they all taste so good and I definitely recommend purchase for some good homemade Brazilian foods.
I recently discovered the joys of eating Brazilian food when I started dating a woman from Brazil. I first checked this book out from my local library and showed her this cookbook and she immediately gave it a thumbs up for the wonderful color pictures and recipies from various regions for Brazil. While she said that there are a few traditional recipies missing, she praised the book for the recipies that were included and indicated that many were worth trying. I figured with that kind of review, it was worth owning. So far we have tried a few recipies from the book starting with the cheese balls and have found them to be quite tasty. My girlfriend of course put her own twist to the things she made. I recommend this cookbook if you like Brazilian food.
I was expecting more recipes from our our traditional culinary.
This cookbook was fun to read through, but probably won't ever cook from it.
