The Brazilian Kitchen, 100 Classic and Contemporary Recipes for the Home Cook


“As a little girl I lived in Rio and have missed the authentic flavor of Brazil’s cuisine. Until I met Leticia Moreinos Schwartz. This native Brazilian makes Brazilian classics easy at home from feijoada to farofa, pao de queijo to my favorite brigadeiros. Her food brings back great memories and I hope you too will fall in love with Brazil.” — Natalie Morales

“Every now and then you get a sense that you are watching someone on the cusp of fame. That’s my take on Leticia Moreinos Schwartz…Her first cookbook, The Brazilian Kitchen is really quite good. I was surprised at how easy many of the recipes were. And now I can make my own Pao de Queijo, those little cheese rolls…” — Chowhounds

“Colorful and bursting with flavor, Brazilian food may be intimidating and unfamiliar to the average home cook. Turn to Leticia Moreinos Schwartz’s cookbook, The Brazilian Kitchen, for reinterpretations of classic dishes that are simple enough to create at home. It’s filled with simple techniques and detailed instructions for 100 mouthwatering recipes.” — iVillage

“Cooking teacher Leticia Moreinos Schwartz has one thing on her mind: to put Brazilian cooking on the map.”  — Fine Cooking

“…It’s a keeper.” — The Washington Post

“In her new book, “The Brazilian Kitchen,” she has transformed the classic, tooth-aching [brigadeiros] recipe with unsweetened coconut, pistachio paste and real chocolate sprinkles.” — The New York Times

“Schwartz not only keeps her native cuisine alive, but makes it more accessible to cooks in this country. With over 100 recipes, I can’t wait to have a little samba, cocktail, dinner party of my own.”  — Eat Me, Drink Me
