“Prelúdio da Cachaça” By Luis Da Câmara Cascudo
For me this book is a great study source in the understanding of the history of Brazil’s national spirit. I am the son of a Sugar Cane farmer, and Cachaça making is close to my own history.
Mr. Cascudo writes this book with great sensibility and clarity, with a deep look into the history and the importance of this beverage to Brazil’s culture.
The amazing variety of Cachaças produced and consumed in Brazil, the national beverage of choice with the famous Caipirinha made with lime juice and sugar, puts Cachaça on the top of the list of the Brazil’s Sugar Cane production.
With beautiful text and poetry, this easy to ready masterpiece, will for sure bring a great taste to your mouth.
