- Our Story
CB Rio correspondent Taylor is a freelance journalist based in Brazil since 2010. She was a recipient of the Inter American Press Association scholarship, and her work has been published in the New York Times, the Christian Science Monitor, the Islamic Monthly, USA Today, and Foreign Policy. She has eaten plov in Uzbekistan, nasi goreng in Indonesia, and gallo pinto in Nicaragua. Her years at Culinary Backstreets have been like peeling a pinapple in her quest to challenge the myopic view of Brazil as a carnivorous monoculture and instead open diners' eyes and mouths to the collard greens, cashew apples and jiló (scarlet eggplant) as tasty as the iconic picanha (rump steak) here.
