We are delighted to be offering signed copies of this book.
A leading figure in the new generation of Brazilian chefs, Manoella Buffara is quickly gaining renown for her restaurant Manu in the city of Curtiba in southern Brazil. This lushly photographed book presents her food and reveals a culinary philosophy that is at once Brazilian and fully aware of the work of the world’s other foremost chefs.
One distinctive element of Buffara’s cooking is her emphasis on local ingredients, which is not surprising for someone who worked at Noma before it was an international hotspot. Her fellow Brazilian chef Alex Atala compares her to Michel Bras for shaping the future of her country’s cooking while being far away from its culinary capitals.
