Episode

We meet Thiago Castanho in an equatorial city at the mouth of the Amazon. At his “Remanso do Bosque” restaurant in Bélem, the young chef, who was trained by his father and is helped by his brother, embodies vibrant and authentic Brazilian gastronomy.

Thiago is passionate about his local region, and works closely with the surrounding communities of fishermen, farmers and craftspeople. We meet oyster farmers in the middle of a mangrove, discover a cassava farm in the jungle, and visit an incredible market. We taste sand crab, tacaca soup, an “electric plant”, and other regional specialities. Preferring to explore the origins of cooking rather than overly modern techniques, Thiago invites us into a world that is teaming with traditional recipes, brilliantly revisited with lashings of love.
