5.0 étoiles sur 5An excellent pick for any library strong in international cuisines and history.20 juin 2008
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
The entire Portuguese-speaking world is embraced under one cover in an unusual cookbook which covers Portugal and its colonies alike. From Brazil and Cape Verde to Goa and Portugal, chapters survey different regions in addition to offering recipes unique to that region. The blend of culinary history and recipe is outstanding, making for an excellent pick for any library strong in international cuisines and history.

5.0 étoiles sur 5eclectic, interesting, and not too complicated.2 juillet 2013
Par Richard Anderson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Purchased this for my mother as a gift. My wife's family is Brazilian, and we are both historians. The book is a very nice combination of recipes and history. The book itself is well produced. This is a cook book with many recipes, but they all look good and none are overly complicated. Many other cook books with Brazilian recipes require ingredients that are hard to find. That is not the case here, though the dishes do not seem any less authentic because of that. Would recommend it to anyone who has been to a Portuguese-speaking country and enjoyed the food, or anyone who wants to cook something different.

5.0 étoiles sur 5A mouth-watering trip around the world13 février 2011
Par Gloria Simpson - Publié sur Amazon.com
'In the sixteenth century, Portuguese navigators circled the globe...', you learn in the introduction. This book is a record of the resulting exchange of food crops and culinary cultures. Recipes are clearly presented and grouped by country and type (main dishes, desserts, and so on). There is a wide range for all tastes. All the recipes I have tried worked out well and were mouth-watering.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Interesting, historical, and delicious!21 février 2013
Par PeteEd - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a GREAT cookbook with a touch of history thrown in as an extra treat before each chapter. Richly photographed and very interesting to browse. I bought six of these, and gave all but one away to relatives. We are of Portuguese/Chinese/South East Asian ancestry, and recognized many recipes, even those from Africa and Portugal itself. I am a herbivore, but found many recipes here that met my culinary and cultural needs. My relatives are carnivores (okay, one may be an omnivore) and they loved the more meaty treats in here. Even I was moved reading about these dishes, remembering them from childhood.
