DEEP DIVE INTO BRAZILIAN CUISINE

With the inflow of immigrants came new recipes and culinary influences to the table of classic foods. You'll notice that Brazilian foods are made with passion from the time you arrive, and meals are more than just plain meals — they're an occasion. Following are amongst the most renowned Brazilian recipes that you should taste if you get the opportunity during your Brazil visit.

VATAPA

VATAPA

A thick Bahian stew comprised of shrimp, bread, crushed peanuts, coconut milk, palm oil, and a variety of seasonings that is mashed into a smooth paste and typically served with rice and acarajé, a sort of cowpea fritter. The shrimp can be changed with tuna, chicken, fish, or just vegetables in many variants of the meal.

EMPADAO

EMPADAO

A crispy crust pie stuffed with casseroled chicken and a variety of veggies including corn, hearts of palm, and peas. Beef and shrimp are occasionally substituted for chicken. It's commonly presented for family lunches and meals on weekends and public holidays in Brazil. Special versions of the meal are commonly offered at street vendors.

PAO DE QUEIJO

PAO DE QUEIJO

The Brazilian "cheese bread" emerges from the southern state of Minas Gerais. Although the tradition extends back centuries, the light, fluffy baked cheese rolls or buns gained popularity in the 1950s. This snack, like many other Brazilian meals, was developed by enslaved Africans who would soak and peel the cassava root before creating the bread. Cassava flour and queijo Minas, a soft Brazilian cheese, are used to make the dough. They may be enjoyed at any time of day and are hugely common for supper when accompanied with cheese and jam.

MOQUECA DE CAMARAO

MOQUECA DE CAMARAO

Moqueca is a delicious slow-cooked stew made with prawns or fish, coconut oil, and milk, as well as vegetables, tomatoes, onions, and coriander, and served sizzling hot in a clay pot. This meal has various regional variants. In fact, both the adjacent states of Baianos and Capixabas claim to have originated it and offer delectable variations.

FAROFA

This wonderfully salty meal is prepared from little chunks of bacon cooked using cassava flour and is recognized for its peculiar smoky taste. This one is accompanied by rice and beans, which soak up the juices and lend structure to an otherwise mushy dinner. The amount of salt, bacon, and spices in each recipe varies widely, as does the consistency of the farofa. It may be served as a main course or as a side dish, and it goes especially well with a barbecue.
