“I haven’t been to Brazil yet. But when I take the journey to Yara Castro Robert’s Brazilian Table, I feel I have. The regions, the ingredients, the history, the farmers, the simplicity, hospitality and elegance of her table all draw me there. Yara is a cook, a storyteller, an environmentalist. She feels the deep links of culture and agriculture in this vast and complicated country and reveals its history and traditions through the beautiful dishes she creates and presents. Her approach is beautiful and basic: Fresh, simple, local, delicious, welcoming……….” Alice Waters is the award-winning author, humanitarian, chef and advocatefor locally grown and fresh ingredients.
