One thing I learned about Brazil during the World Cup – other than that their soccer team sucked – is it is a passionate place filled with passionate people. And you’d be hard-pressed to find a more passionate man than world-renowned chef Alex Atala. Directed by Tyler Manson, this latest episode of Rob Machado’s Through The Lens series takes you into the kitchen of Atala’s Sao Paulo restaurant, inside the barrels of Rio, and leg-deep into the murky waters of the slums of Jardim Gramacho. Water drives this piece as well as it’s subjects – Machado to surf, and Atala to cook. Get hungry, get inspired, and take a look through the lens.
