One of my favorite South American expat blog reads - it's top of my reader list when there's a new post. I love James' explorations of the history and provenance of ingredients and dishes, along with recipes that are clearly written, easy to follow and produce great results.

If you are interested in the food of Brazil (and all the other culture that goes with it) then FlavorsOfBrazil should be your starting point. I use James' excellently written blog as a reference whenever I want to know more about anything related to Brazilian food. If I hear about a new fruit or some obscure dish, I can be sure that James will have written something interesting and authoritative on the subject. An excellent blog that is updated every week day.
