Original cuisine, food from Bahia
Entrepreneur Bruno Pascal and chef Guto Lago run the Villa Bahia Restaurant in Largo do São Francisco, Historic Center. The menu “Back to the origins with Manoel Querino” reproduces dishes made from the recipes described in the book “Arte Culinária na Bahia” (The Culinary Art in Bahia), from 1916, by Manuel Querino.
Hauçá rice, chicken xinxin, efó, fish and shrimp moquecas with pirão and farofa, ambrosia and cashew sweet are the stars of the menu. ” Arte Culinária na Bahia “, which is known, was the first Brazilian Gastronomy record. Edited for the first time in 1916, the work is a collection of everyday recipes used in Salvador and at the Recôncavo by the anthropologist Manuel Querino. In 2002, Theatro XVIII and P55 did a reprint of the book, which sold out quickly.
