Introduction by Harm Tilman.

Eat Brazil. That is the credo of this book. Do not try to understand its
culture, for that would be a little absurd. Do not try to comprehend its
economy or to grasp its order, for that is hopeless. There is only one way
to go. Eat Brazil up. Consume its landscape. Devour its cities. Make a
ceremony of it. Slice the masses into sacral pieces and invent ritual
sequences. Learn, as the Brazilians have learned, to digest this country as
it is - sweet and promiscuous, crude and unapproachable, enormous and
endless. Accept the supremacy of the body sacrosanct. We Europeans must
summon up our courage and relinquish our resistance. This book offers its
help, in the form of a mental dinner.
