A short story, feature film, television film, and drama writer and novelist, Cuza taught creative writing with the American Society upon her arrival in Brazil. A foodie herself, she began experimenting with Brazilian cuisine in her spare time, which served as the inspiration for this book.

She is a member of the Authors Guild and the International Women's Writing Guild. Her articles have been published in various literary magazines, and her accolades include first place in the Indiana Writers' Center Contest in 2005.

Vibrant Cooking Lessons from an American in Brazil Oct. 2 2012
By Dee Long - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We love cookbooks that focus on a specific international destination because it allows us to travel the world without leaving our kitchen! Author Cuza immediately draws you into the exciting world of Brazilian food with a visit to the Brazilian fiera outdoor market and the four staples of cooking here: beans, onions, garlic and rice. The majority of the menu offerings featured include at least one of these ingredients and the dishes featured are colorful, earthy and uncomplicated, from Hearts of Palm and Avocado Salad to Maria Rita, a one-dish meal using ground beef and served in most Brazilian homes. Especially intriguing are the desserts, one of which is filled with an easy to create Eggplant Jelly! Cuza also includes a good resource list of US sources for the more unusual Brazilian cooking ingredients. The book is nicely illustrated and Cuza's easy manner and enthusiasm for her adopted Latin American homeland is contageous!

A note to the author:
I live in Brazil and I have bought several copies of your cookbook. I loved it! So did everyone I gave a copy to. The book is a fabulous gift for my friends living here and friends in the States. The recipes and the vibrant photos are truly a taste of Brazil today. Congratulations - what a beautiful way to symbolize your years in in this country. My copy will be on my kitchen counter at all times!
Brazilian food prepared easily Sept. 7 2013
By Paul Goldstein - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The autor of "The Art Of Braziiian Cooking" did a superb job introducing us to brazilian food, The recipes are easy to follow and prepare, the instructions are clear. The dishes I prepared so far from the book are indeed delicious, the accompanied pictures eye catching. See the references at the back of the book.

I hope Ms. Cuza wil introduce us in the future to other regional foods too.

Paul Goldstein,
Delicious and easy! Sept. 6 2013
By Sue H. Lund - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a long-time resident of Brazil I am quite critical when it comes to Brazilian recipes, but I found these authentic, delicious, and easy to prepare , both for family meals and dinner parties. Photos are terrific! I purchased five copies, one for each of my Brasilian born children.
Great book for the home chef Sept. 3 2013
By Greg Jah - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had the good fortune to live in Brazil for seven months, during which time I fell in love with the food and the people. This book gives me a chance to revisit the country by cooking up some of my favorite dishes - Moqueca, Pao de Batata and Feijao, to name a few.

One problem I often find with international cookbooks is that they either rely on ingredients that are difficult to source outside of their home country, or practically require a sous-chef to prepare. Fortunately, this book suffers from neither. The ingredients are easy to obtain and the recipes straightforward. There is a great variety of recipes in the book as well, ranging from the traditional (i.e., Frango Caipira) to the more eclectic (i.e., Carrot Soup with Thyme and Yogurt). The Bolo de Milho Verde (sweet corn cake) is worth the price of the book alone. This cake is delicious and very easy to make.

After you get this cookbook pour yourself some Cachaca, put some Joao Gilberto on the stereo, and get in the kitchen. You will be glad you did!
