Fernanda learned to cook in her grandmother's kitchen in Curitiba, Brazil, where she lived until setting off for New York City 8 years ago. Starting with Brazilian staples like rice and beans and moqueca (a hearty fish stew), those early experiences alongside Avó Anice inform her approach to food: simple methods, surprising combinations, diverse and local ingredients, and bold flavors. With her Brazilian heritage, family hailing from Greece and Eastern Europe, a year spent in Paris, a particular taste for the spiciest corners of Asian cuisine, and a Jewish husband, Fernanda is comfortable cooking all over the map.

Delicious! A generous amount of shrimp and soba noodles cooked just right with a sauce that really was a unique blend of spices. Definitely will order again!
This was great. Amazing flavor.
Salmon cooked perfectly. Unusual and excellent preparation.
delicious, good portion too
Delicious... reminded me of a cross between coconut shrimp curry and Cajun jambalaya... please offer this dish again!
I'm always somewhat afraid of ordering shrimp -- it can be mushy, or tough, or not taste fresh. This dish is amazing and the shrimp is cooked perfectly! Will def order again.
Love the portion balance between shrimp and rice!

I really enjoyed this dish!! Very very tasty!
so tasty and good size shrimp! very happy with the portion and the extra dressing
This was super delicious. Definitely would order again. I wish there was more. It was so delicious, my meal disappeared in 5 seconds.
Each time gets better!
If there were 10 stars available, I would give it to this wonderful dish...thx
Sloppy meal. Rice should kew packaged separately.

Do not hesitate and order it! One of the best!!!!
Really great flavor. Creamy with a bit of a kick.
Delicious! I don't normally eat rice, but the sauce was so nice and the rice so soft, I mopped it all up and finished every bite.
Fantastic Moqueca! The collard greens were good even cold :)
Such a delicious meal and a big portion! Would definitely order again!
Loved it! Perfect portion size.
Great dish and very filling! Loved the rich, creamy flavor of the curry! The brown rice was perfect!
so delicious! This is one of my favorite Cook Unity dishes!
This was delicious, very rich and creamy and also very filling. I would get this again for sure. The only thing that would be make it a little more awesome would be if there were a few more veggies.
Tofu was cooked perfectly, curry had great flavor. Of course, I'm always going to want more spice!
Meat was rare
These meatballs are just out of this world.
Lovely, tender meatballs; excellent cabbage providing a sharp contrast. Will order again
AWESOME. This might be my favorite CookUnity dish so far.
Very delicious, but wish the portion was larger...more balls please:-)
The meatballs were very flavorful and the chimichurri sauce for the cabbage was delicious - but cabbage and meatballs are an unexpected combination!
This is the first real food I have eaten since I had Dental surgery 01/16. The stitches came out today and I was able to manage these fantastic meatballs. Couldn't chew the vegetables but will put them in a blender and eat tomorrow as hot soup. The meatballs were best I have ever had and I loved the sauce. Thank you! Barbara
It was nice and filling. Not my favorite, but something I wouldn't mind eating again!
Very tasty in general, but *very* light on the vegetables (like less than 5 pieces) and the tofu was kind of bland. More veggies would be nice so it's not just a huge bowl of carbs!

Love it just be careful not to put too much sauce on. The tofu was perfect
The main course was delicious! Loved the meal. The radish slaw, not so much. Like that it was a salad, but just not a fan of slaw, and what ever's in it gives very bad breath...
this looked nothing like the picture. little zucchini and the orange zest. i think you may have given me the basic salmon meal instead. it was also cold and didnt look brown like this and there was no oranges on it
Too salty. Otherwise looked great

There was NO BOK CHOY in my meal.

Out of this world yummy. Transcendent. Mind-blowing deliciousness.
So tasty, I thought the sauce could have used a little more of the orange flavor. I didn't get much of that, nor much of a miso glaze, but the pearl couscous was out of this world, and the sauce was so tasty. The fish was on point. Loved it!
i crave for noodles, i was satisfied with this food
the salmon is good, my husband like it
Not inedible but not very good. The flavors just didn't work, the salmon needed more of glaze rather than a watery sauce. Regardless, the flavors were just not good.
Too salty. Everything else was good.
Perfect combination. The salmon was tasty and the zest was not over powering.
Nice light flavor, healthy, fresh salmon
Too much couscous. Not enough veggies. Sauce was too sweet
Salmon was cooked perfectly. Thank you

qué delicia! great, tasty meal—loved the pearl couscous and the salad was a delight.
Good dish! Ordered it for my daughter. I like it too.
Really good! loved the sauce was - nice and creamy!
Aimee : 12/19/2016
not enough meat on the chicken.
Yum. Really good chicken!
too salty. chicken was a whole leg, but fell apart to small pieces in not a good way.
Even my husband said it was delicious.
Favorite parts of the dish was the sauce, mashed potatoes, and the green beans. Chicken was very good.
very sophisticated flavors. i really enjoyed it.
Shena : 09/02/2016
Under seasoned. Even potatoes were blah and they were supposed to be "truffled."
this is an excellent dish...couldn't eat it tho because i put the dressing on before i tested it and it was too spicy to eat...made me crazy...why do you have to ruin a perfectly good dish by making it too spicey to eat?????i don't get it...
Salmon was not fully cooked and definitely not grilled. The order confirmation also had no orzo nor asparagus in it
Did not like sugar in yogurt sauce or orzo. Salmon cooked well and tasted fresh.
It was delicious Thank you Starr
Salmon very fresh and loved the flavors in the orzo. Light but filling.
Best tasting healthy food ever!

Off the chain! Insanely yummy. My deepest compliments to the chef, the genius, the maestro. Thank you!
A simple meal with good flavor. Light and fresh. will order again.
Ordered and did not receive. Was available night before placing order. Customer service called at the requested time of delivery to say sold out. Then got annoyed while she wait while I log on to choose something else. I chose the shrimp. Then less than 5 Minutes I receive a call back shrimp is sold out. Pick something else. I chose the crab. Logged back in and saw shrimp was available on line. I called back and asked her to double check on the shrimp. Oh. It was available. I supposed it was a busy day or staff is short handed! We enjoyed our meals but definitely a bit chaotic! Chef, Would have love to try your chicken. Please share above with mgmt.
Rice was nice. Chicken was dry.
Nice but very salty!
Liked the food. Would put a little bit more of sauce (I usually like my meals with plenty of sauce, but that's something personal!).
Shrimp was really delicious. Would have preferred the couscous without the raisins
I didn't receive it.
I didn't receive it. Where's it?
WOW THAT SHRIMP WAS FRESH. AND THIS IS SO TASTY! I felt energized and great after eating this!
Very tasty and filling.
Great chicken breast but very small side portions of maple squash and broccoli
Love lemon chicken and this version rocks
veggie burger bun and sauce too hot to eat had to throw away...
