Overview
MY RIO DE JANEIRO taps into the rich cuisine of the wildly popular tourist destination, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Cooking teacher and author Leticia Moreinos Schwartz is a Carioca (a person born in Rio) living in the US, and she's eager to share her passion for her native hometown cooking, bringing you face to face with the dynamic flavors and passionate culinary personalities of Rio de Janeiro. Rio s cuisine is known for its casual settings and reflects various aspects of Brazilian culture. Leticia Moreino Schwartz highlights approximately 90 of Rio s best recipes, including unforgettable petiscos (finger food), Carioca (native) home cooking, Portuguese inspired foods, and contemporary urban dishes. Organized by neighborhood, recipes include Risole de Camarao com Catupiry (Shrimp and Catupiry Cheese Turnovers) from a botequim just steps from Leticia's family home in Leblon, Bicoito O Globo (Beach Yucca Crackers) from the beaches of Ipanema, Farfale with Salmon and Caipirinha Sauce made with fresh-caught salmon from the fish market in Buzios, Filet Oswaldo Aranha (Steak with Fried Garlic) from a restaurant near the Jardim Botanico, and Bolo de Chocolate, Castanhas e Coco (Chocolate, Brazil nut, and Coconut Cake) inspired by the nuts found in a specialty grocery store in Copacabana. Also interspersed throughout the book are feature spreads on Leticia's favorite places, people, recipes, and ingredients of Rio. Beautifully illustrated with colorful photography from Rio, as well as mouth-watering food photography, My Rio de Janeiro is a new, ripe territory for kitchen tourists."
