Photographer's Note

In the blurred background of my last photo, there were piles of cans that can be seen all around the Central Market of Belo Horizonte. These are cans of dulce de leche, a confection prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk that is very popular in many Latin American coutries.

Dulce de Leche Viçosa, produced in the city of Viçosa, in Minas Gerais, is recognized by the public and by experts as the best Brazilian dulce de leche. The traditional version participates in the most respected event in the country, the National Dairy Products Competition, organized by Epamig and the Dairy Institute Cândido Tostes since 2000, always winning the top three and having won the competition on nine occasions: 2001, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016. With the awards, Dulce de Leche Viçosa became a record holder of the Competition, being the most awarded in all the editions.

After an intermittent participation in previous years, today is my 13th anniversary on TE, and instead of a cake I prefer a can of a good dulce de leche!
