" "Whenever I see that Dos Equis commercial - ‘the most interesting man in the world'' - I always think, no, that''s not true. The most interesting man in the world is Alex Atala." - David Chang "A cuisine unlike anything I''ve ever had in my life." - Daniel Humm, Eleven Madison Mark At D.O.M. in São Paulo, widely regarded as one of the world''s best restaurants, you won''t find the traditional staples of fine dining on the menu. For the past 15 years, acclaimed chef Alex Atala - a native of Brazil and the only chef named one of TIME magazine''s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013 - has refused to import any ingredients traditionally found in the European kitchens where he once trained. Instead, Atala scours the lush bounty of the Amazon for indigenous produce and proteins, crafting a cuisine that is steeped in classical techniques yet distinctly and uniquely Brazilian. D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients is Atala''s first major cookbook. Here, he offers an in‐depth look at the products and creative process that make up his innovative cuisine. The book features 65 recipes such as Fresh Heart of Palm with Scallops and Coral Sauce; Lightly Toasted Black Rice with Green Vegetables and Brazil Nut Milk; Lamb Hind Shanks with Yam Puree and Pitanga ; and Priprioca, Lime, and Banana Ravioli . 150 stunning color photographs bring each dish to life and reveal the lush, vibrant landscapes of Atala''s Brazil.
