Good food, good company and good conversation: those are three of the top ingredients for a lovely evening out with your best mates. But where to meet, exactly?
Cassava root is one of the main parts of the traditional Brazilian diet, as it is the source for manioc flour, a key ingredient in the Brazilian traditional dish called farofa. Farofa, if you didn’t know by now, is commonly served alongside other dishes, but is most associated with the famous dish feijoada.
Christmas is soon arriving, and the people who celebrate it around the world have their unique ways and traditions surrounding this ages-old holiday. The people of Brazil are no different.
Are you looking for a cozy place to have lunch or dinner and are up for changing up your meal choices? Do you like a rustic environment that’s suitable not just for eating, but for chatting with friends, or perhaps having a meal solo with a good book in one hand and your fork or cup of coffee in the other?
Lots of people like chocolate fudge and other sweet treats, particularly around this time of year, when everyone gears up for holiday baking of all kinds. But between the mint-flavoured fudge, gingerbread people and, of course, the ever-present fruitcake, you might try cooking up this delightful chocolate candy from Brazil: the brigadeiro.
