ChurrascoGrilling the Brazilian Way


Learn the ancient art of the grill from a true gaucho.

Join Chef Evandro Caregnato on a culinary journey to discover the authentic Gaucho way of living and their rustic traditional style of grilling meats called Churrasco. A native gaucho who grew up in Rio Grande do Sul, the birthplace of churrasco, Chef Caregnato has been the culinary director for the award-winning churrascaria Texas de Brazil since 1998. In Churrasco: Grilling the Brazilian Way, Caregnato shares stories of how the gauchos from southern Brazil prepare and cook meats over open fire, as well as over 70 savory recipes from his hometown and Texas de Brazil’s restaurants that have never been released before.

Featuring 216 pages of recipes, stories and over 100 mouth-watering photographs, Churrasco: Grilling the Brazilian Way teaches how to master the art of churrasco like a South American cowboy and shows why so many people are falling in love with picanha, chimichurri and caipirinhas!

 

Evandro Caregnato’s restaurant experience began at the Churrascaria Caregnato, his grandfather’s restaurant, where he worked in his teens, but his cooking experience began long before that, learning about churrasco cooking in the traditional Brazilian way: watching his father, grandfather, and uncles grill traditional churrasco dishes. He opened Texas de Brazil in 1998, and is now Culinary Director of the restaurant’s more than 40 locations.
