Brazil, Brazil here I come...
As I mentioned before my husbands has a book that came out about his life called 'Shoulda Been dead' you can find it on amazon. From time to time he has book signing tours. So this time it will be in Brazil. In Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro.
So extremely exciting.... Isn't it?
So as I am preparing for that. I decided to share a little info about the Brazilian cuisine. Brazilian food is so amazingly delicious. In the world it is a style of food that is not so recognized as is Italian food for instance but it is definitely delicious, creative, and by all means different. In my eyes the Brazilian food is one of; if not the most interestingly delicious food in existence.
If you have not had a chance to try Brazilian food yet. You are surely missing out. Big Time... They have loads of styles, varieties, tastes, mixtures. Their food is so well prepared and they even have the talent of always presenting their meal well. They always garnish (decorate) and set the table well. Making each dish look so irresistible. It's surprising that they are mostly thin as a nation. If I were a Brazilian, living in Brazil, I would have to have a lot of self control in order to not eat everything...
|Cheese Bread (very common in Breakfast)|
|Bread with ham and cheese or even butter is a biggy..|
At lunch they eat heavier, for the most part from what I know they really love their red meats, rice and beans.
|Rice and black beans for them goes with EVERY meal|
|Most Brazilians love their red meat|
For snack time they normally eat these treats, that are an experience with every single bite.
|minced meat filled treat|
|chicken filled treats|
Dessert, so unique and delicious. Mostly for desserts they love using condensed milk in almost every dessert recipe. Sweetened Condensed milk Is a big part of their desserts.
|Assorted mini treats called docinhos|
|Pave - they add chocolate, cookies, or even fruits etc.|
Dinner Normally they repeat lunch and eat a big meal.
I am so excited to have this great privilege to spend a few days in Brazil getting to know more about their culture, foods, people and more. I will keep you posted.
p.s. If you haven't tried Brazilian food or met the Brazilian people. You are missing out. The food, culture in whole and people are absolutely amazing.
