'Thiago is a master craftsman, serving up fresh and original dishes from one of the richest natural larders in the world.' - Michael Palin
Thiago Castanho's love of food and local ingredients began at home, when his father decided to turn their living room into a small restaurant to support the family. Now 26, Thiago is one of the most acclaimed chefs of the new Brazilian cuisine with two restaurants: his first, Remanso do Peixe; and his new one, Remanso do Bosque, on the edge of a national park. Thiago's cuisine moves easily from tradition to modernity. He manages to combine comfort food and the diverse flavours of Brazil in a unique way. His food is in tune with nature, showing great love and respect for the environment and for local producers. Thiago featured on Michael Palin's BBC series Brazil.Luciana Bianchi, coauthor, is an Italian-Brazilian chef and food writer with a background in molecular science.
