About this title

Synopsis:

Travelers who like to get to the heart of a culture through its cuisine, yet never find enough material about food in general guidebooks, can get a quick handle on eating abroad with the unique and innovative Eat Smart destination cuisine guides, which contain a treasury of culinary surprises and language tips for navigating menu and market. Less adventuresome eaters will be more at ease in experimenting with new foods and food preparations since these invaluable guidebooks take the guesswork out of exotic, unfamiliar foods. The premiere guide in this authoritative series "Eat Smart in Brazil: How to Decipher the Menu, Know the Market Foods & Embark on a Tasting Adventure" is a paean to Brazilian cuisine. It contains a rich historical perspective on the origins and varieties of Brazilian food and extensive background on the delectable regional dishes. Portuguese phrases are included to make one s culinary adventure even more successful. At the core of the book are two extensive glossaries in Portuguese with English translations. The Menu Guide demystifies food selection, allowing visitors to order with confidence in restaurants; the Foods & Flavors Guide is a comprehensive list of foods, spices, cooking utensils, cooking styles, etc., to make shopping in the colorful outdoor markets easy and fun. Authors Joan and David Peterson inveterate travelers, cooks, seekers of unusual herbs and spices, and new ways to prepare familiar ingredients have added a delicious bonus by providing a chapter of recipes for travelers to preview the tastes before departure, thus broadening the guide s appeal to cookbook lovers as well. If you are traveling or moving to Brazil, take this book with you!"
