This book is in my opinion one of the most important books dedicated for the amazing pastry and sugar works of Brazil. Written in Portuguese.
“Delícias das Sinhás” História e Receitas Culinárias da Segunda Metade do Século XIX e Início do Século XX.
A beautiful collaboration by Héctor Hernán Bruit, Eliane Morelli Abrahão, Deborah D’Almeida Leanza, Fernando Antonio Abrahão (org.) and Fernando Kassab (Adaptação, produção e fotografia das receitas culinárias).
