In my survey of Rio expats, I ask what everyone's favorite Brazilian treat is but inadvertently forgot to include the fruit as an option. Luckily many of you reminded me by adding the option.
Although the fruit will never be as fresh tasting back home, there is a way to preserve its beauty in your memory. Jann La Pointe is one of Rio's most talented photographers (we had our maternity photos done with her and have had a couple of sets of portraits of Canadoca done with her as well), and she has put together a beautiful book of photos of Brazil's tropical fruit treats - check it out here.
