BOOK RELEASE | Comida Cheia de História
The journalist specializing in gastronomy Patrícia Ferraz is a collector of stories. Now, some of his experiences over 20 years of interviews with chefs and celebrities, travel and restaurant visits are told in unheard-of and entertaining chronicles in his first book Foods Full of History | Delicious recipes and chronicles of a journalist of gastronomy, which arrives with the seal of Editora Senac São Paulo. The work will be launched on Thursday, December 5 at 6:30 pm, at the Museu da Casa Brasileira (MCB), an institution of the Culture Secretariat of the State of São Paulo.
With a foreword by Josimar Melo, a gastronomic critic, the work joins recipes to texts showered with good conversations in a relaxed atmosphere. Throughout the more than 200 pages, Patricia not only reports her best stories, but also opens the kitchen of her own home, where all the recipes and photos of the publication were made.
“The book’s recipes are easy, even for those who do not have a kitchen or experience. And they were all tested by me, in my own kitchen, “explains the author.
The work brings recipes such as the entree of brie with garlic croutons and raspberry vinaigrette, which changed the life of chef Roberta Sudbrack; the best ceviche in the world, made by Peruvian chef Javier Wong; and British chef Gordon Ramsay’s pear tatin pie, perfect for a cold day. There is also the chocolate pie of Charlô, the favorite sandwich of Queen Elizabeth, among others. Big names in national and international cuisine become characters in a narrative to whet the appetite.
Divided into the conventional categories (appetizers, appetizers, soups, salads, pastas, grains, meats, fish and poultry, sandwiches and desserts), the book has a thematic index so the reader can be inspired by the occasion, of ease (not of difficulty!) and time of year. There are even tips and tricks to ensure revenue success.
Tailor-made for those who love cooking and welcoming friends for good conversation around the table, Food Full of History | Delicious recipes and chronicles from a gastronomic journalist is the perfect book to discover flavors full of meanings and stories.
