This is not a run of the mill cookbook written by a culinary professional. It was created by a Brazilian travel entrepreneur who wanted to highlight the destinations she sells throughout Brazil, using the voices, stories and recipes of the people on the ground, who you will meet whilst traveling through the country.
“Travel to Brazil: The Cookbook,” contains not only recipes, but the personal stories behind them, an exploration of the different cultures also found throughout Brazil, how its history brought these foods to become tradition, and a preview of some of Brazil’s most interesting travel destinations (and travel providers).
This cookbook will make you hungry and want to cook! It will also spark your curiosity to visit Brazil and learn more about the culture.
10% of all profit on the sales of books will go to supporting organizations that promote the development of community-based tourism experiences in Brazil, such as Projeto Bagagem (a national NGO), and local organizations found in the book (Adocci, MMIB, and Instituto Negralinda).
If you'd like to order 6 or more copies of the book, email us at hello@explorequity.
Travel to Brazil: The Cookbook
How many recipes are in the book? 59!
How big is the book?
The book has 258 pages and is 8x10” (20.3 x 25.4 cm). It weighs about 2 lbs (or 1 kg).
How long will it take for the book to arrive?
The average time for books purchased within the continental United States is about 1 week – 10 days. International orders may take a few days longer.
Can I find ingredients where I live?
The recipes were tested throughout the world, not only in Brazil, but countries like the United States, Germany, and Singapore! This was to make sure ingredients were accessible, and also so we could suggest substitutes, where they weren’t so easy to find. You may not find all ingredients, but we’ve done comprehensive research on what kinds of substitutes you can use if you can’t.
Do I need any special equipment to reproduce the recipes?
In general, basic pots, pans, mixing bowls, a blender, stove and oven should do. We’d also recommend having a pressure cooker, but this is not mandatory to reproduce recipes. Very few recipes ask for things like a mixer, processor, slow cooker, or special kinds of pots and pans.
My book came with a defect; how can I send a complaint/receive a new copy?

It doesn't happen often but, minor manufacturing defects can occur from time to time. Below is a list of the most common defects that may occur. When minor, these defects do not render an order defective or damaged:
