escoffianas brasileiras

Graphic design and creative direction of the book Escoffianas Brasileiras, by Alex Atala and Carolina Chagas.

The name Escoffianas Brasileiras is a joke, a word play with the name of the French chef Georges Auguste Escoffier, a restaurateur and writer who popularized and renewed the traditional methods of French cuisine, and the name of the musical composition Bachianas Brasileiras by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos.

Villa-Lobos used the name of Bach to compose the Brazilian music, as Alex Atala uses Escoffier to unravel the national gastronomy.
