Brazilian regional food with a magic twist

Fans of Brazilian high gastronomy will not be disappointed by this rare example of a famous chef making truly traditional dishes. Mara Salles was inspired by her roots in rural São Paulo state to work mostly with local ingredients and to highlight regional dishes. Salles’s culinary wizardry is best sampled in the pato no tucupi (duck and manioc stew). For dessert, try the cupuaçu ice cream – a mind-blowingly tangy Amazonian fruit. Tordesilhas regulars will miss the restaurant’s excellent-value tasting menu, which was taken off the menu following a change of address in May 2013, to the upmarket Jardins neighbourhood.
