Good Food Month is thrilled to be partnering with Phaidon Press to present this charismatic Brazilian chef, and his new book.

One of the most influential and exciting chefs in the world, Alex Atala’s approach to fine-dining has not only changed the face of Brazilian gastronomy but created a whole new culinary movement around uniquely Brazilian ingredients, techniques and traditions. His restaurant, D.O.M. in Sao Paolo, was recently ranked second in Latin America - sixth on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna.

His new book D.O.M - Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients is the culmination of years of research and profiles more than 40 unique products from the Amazon and beyond. Alex describes the story of each ingredient's remarkable rediscovery, and the fascinating farmers and producers he has met along the way.

Alex Atala appears courtesy of Margaret River Gourmet Escape (November 22-24).
