I met Leticia at the Roger Smith Cookbook Conference, we are kindred spirits and we will be doing some cross-blogging! Please check her out–she was on the Today Show yesterday http://video.today.msnbc.msn.com/today/46480930#46480930
Note the familiar aspects of Brazilian and Southern cuisine–rice, beans, rice and beans, the pigs feet , collard greens, hot peppers, all of it…This is Africa in the America’s at its best!
Leticia! Fantastic job! Looks delicious
