    Ok but...

    The cuisines in the book are authentic and the cultural tidbits are enjoyable, but the book is organized by region and not course or ingredient. I would not recommend this book for someone looking for just an easy yet authentic reference for Brasilian cooking. A true connoiseur of ethnic cuisine will find it enjoyable but this is not the go-to book for a random meal if not already familiar with the basics.
