Like its soccer and samba, beautiful beaches and carnival, Brazilian cooking is an explosion of colour and flavour. Leticia Moreinos Schwartz - spending her childhood in Rio's iconic neighbourhood Ipanema - grew up eating Caldinho de Feijao all day and drinking fresh coconut water on the beach. When she moved to New York she found she was homesick for the colour and vibrancy of the food she grew up with. Cooking for herself, she went back to the Brigadeiros and Baba de Moca of her childhood but found that her palate had changed. Leticia reconstructed classic Brazilian dishes, using the skills she had gained whilst working in some of the world's best kitchens. The dishes are a little lighter and less sweet to fit with modern health-conscious lifestyles, and are easier to recreate at home. The result is this groundbreaking collection of easy-to- make, easy-to-love recipes.
With simple techniques and clear directions, dishes like Salmon no Risotto de Caipirinha (Salmon over a Caipirinha Risotto) and Bolinho Quente de Doce de Leite com Sorbet de Coalhada (Molten Dulce de Leche Cake with a Sour Cream Sorbet) will become part of your everyday cooking repertoire and bring a welcome Copocabana-born breeze into every home kitchen.
Leticia Moreinos Schwartz was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and moved to New York in 1997. After graduating from the French Culinary Institute she worked in the kitchens of many of the top New York City restaurants. In 2000 she moved to Connecticut and started her own catering and cooking instruction business, teaching at schools such as The Institute of Culinary Education and the French Culinary Institute where she has built up a loyal following.
