Fuelled by the curiosity of a culinary anthropologist and world traveller, this book returns for even more for the venturesome gastronome. This edition boasts 70 additional recipes making a total of 300 and has a newly accessible format, since it is divided geographically rather than according to types of food. Still unique in the breadth of its reach, this cookbook encompasses the entire Portuguese-speaking world. And explains the Moorish and Jewish influence on culinary traditions. Portuguese mariners spread sweet potatoes, peanuts, corn and rice around the world and these staples make regular appearances in the recipes.
