About this product
- Description'I believe that cuisine is the most important link between nature and culture.' Alex Atala 'A cuisine unlike anything I've ever had in my life.' Daniel Humm, Eleven Madison Park 'Whenever I see that Dos Equis commercial - the most interesting man in the world - I always think, , that's t true. The most interesting man in the world is Alex Atala.' David Chang, Momofuku At D.O.M. in Sao Paulo, widely regarded as one of the best restaurants in the world, you won't find traditional staple ingredients of fine dining. Caviar, foie gras, and truffles are all absent from the menus. For the past 15 years, acclaimed Chef Alex Atala, a native of Brazil and the only chef named one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013, has refused to import any ingredients traditionally found in the European kitchens in which he trained. Instead, he has scoured the lush bounty of the Amazon for indigeus produce and proteins, and crafted a cuisine steeped in classical techniques but distinctly and uniquely Brazilian. D.O.M : Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients is the first major cookbook by Alex Atala, offering an in-depth look at the products and creative process that make up his invative cuisine. The book features 65 recipes such as Fresh Heart of Palm With Scallops and Coral Sauce; Lightly Toasted Black Rice with Green Vegetables and Brazil Nut Milk, Lamb Hind Shanks with Yam Puree and Pitanga, and Priprioca, Lime and Banana Ravioli. 150 stunning colour photographs bring each dish to life while revealing the vibrant, landscapes of Atala's Brazil. The result is an immersive experience that transports readers into the streets of Sao Paulo and the rainforests of the Amazon, while getting inside the mind of one of the world's best chefs as he captures flavours that can be found where else in the world. The book features an introduction by chef Alain Ducasse.
