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 ofTIMEmagazine''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 Ingredientsis 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 result is an immersive experience that transports readers into the streets of São Paulo and the rain forests of Amazon. Also featuring an introduction by chef Alain Ducasse,D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredientsexplores the mind of one of the world''s best chefs as he captures flavors that can be found nowhere else in the world.
