Brazil: A Cook's Tour. by Christopher Idone. I have been fascinated by everything Brazil since I can remember, and my honeymoon seemed like the perfect excuse to finally pay a visit to the country of my dreams. In preparation for the trip, a group of girlfriends gave me this book, which chronicles the author's culinary journey through this amazing place. The recipes in the book are easy to follow and very similar to those I collected personally from the very friendly Bahian cooks I met.

Reviews about Brazil : a Cook's Tour (7):
it is a cook book, so you expect to make good use of the recipes. I am Brazilian and I assure that many recipes are different of the "traditional way of doing" or have different ingredients. Besides, it doesn't cover the very typical menu, instead has some recipes that don't tell much about what would be a Brazilian taste. Above all, still a great book very well illustrated.
I love the way it was divided into different regions in Brazil and that they showed very sumptuous photos of the edible items they wrote about...
Like other reviewers, I was bowled over by the fantastic photos throughout this book. They are really beautiful and take me back to the year I spent in Brazil. My problem with the book is simple: There is no way anyone actually cooked by the majority of these recipies!! Ingredient amounts don't make sense, bowl and dish sizes don't make sense, cooking times don't make sense. Let me give one of the more egregious examples: In the recipie for Bolo de Aipim, the author proposes putting 2 pounds manioc root, 2 cups sugar, 4 eggs, 2 cups milk, and 2 cups coconut milk into a 9"x13" pan. These ingredients wouldn't fit into a pan twice that size! In addition, there is way, way too much liquid. This cake would take over an hour to firm up, not the 30 minutes he recommends. This is just one of dozens of examples.
I am tempted to recommend this book as a coffee table fixture, but I can not even do that. It is irresponsible of this author to write a book with grossly untested recipies. It is a waste of my money on ingredients and my time in the kitchen.
I do not recommend this book to anyone. There are many better choices for Brazilian cooking.
Brazil, a cook's tour, is the only Brazilian cookbook that I use, the recipes are not for the beginner and you need to start early if you want to use fresh ingredients. But the end result is worth it. The "Molho de Pimienta Malagueta" is delicious and one of the few things that are easy to do. The "Quindão" is a coconut cake that your kids will love. I always impress my Brazilian friends with the recipes from this book, of course, I keep it a secret. And one of the best parts of this book is how Christopher takes you on his journey around Brazil without you realizing you are reading a cookbook. I love it so much I decide it to feature it in the recipes page of my homepage.
Like others have said, the pictures are beautiful, and the book is intriguing. The recipes sound great too. The problem is that they're really poorly written. He leaves steps out. Quantities don't always make sense. I was really disappointed. I won't buy one from him again.
I am from Brasil and disagree with the statement that this is not an accurate book. Yes, some recipes have been modified, but they have been modified so that they can be made with ingredients found in the US. I think it's a very colorful and well planned book. I like how it looks at the different foods from the different regions. I myself am from the state of Parana where most of the coffee is grown and a lot of the cattle. I highly recommend this book.

The photos are so wonderful!!!!! This cookbook will not only give you great recipes and make your mouth water, but it will also give you a desire to go see for yourself!!! The "wanderlust" adventurer will want to go to the open air markets and try all of the spices and fruits that are not common in the United States. This cookbook is one of those that is also great reading and upon receiving my copy I just wanted to make myself a "Caipirinha" (lime, rum, and sugar drink) and scan all of the beautiful photos and recipe ideas!!! This makes a wonderful gift for all of the cookbook collectors on your list!!! This book has a glossary and also a good source list of ingredients in stores in the U.S. And if the travel bug gets to you...there are some travel suggestions too!!! Don't forget your visa!!! Boa Sorte! (Good Luck)
The recipes sound mouthwatering enough, but the ingredients are too difficult to find. And even when I have found the ingredients, the end result is lackluster.
