I am currently enjoying a month long school trip to Brazil! Although I am not really cooking during my time here, I am certainly enjoying all of the amazing cuisine that the country is offering. Each day provides a new opportunity of flavors and foods. Breakfast is an array of fruits and breads, always accompanied by eggs and a very strong coffee. Lunch is served buffet style with rice, beans, loads of veggies, and some things I am not really sure of. Dinner has been an array of offerings. One night was an amazing steak house, with more meats that I have ever seen before. Some of which I tried for the first time (chicken hearts and ostrich). One night was pizza, another was street food, the options are almost never ending. So instead of me just jabbering about what Ive been enjoying, let me show you. Im not totally sure what everything is but I will try my best to describe to the best of my knowledge 😀 Happy Eating my Friends!!!
Doce de Leite
Some samplings from the salad bar at the steak house
This grill house fed you more than you could ever hope to eat, and then dessert
This cake was honestly one of the best I’ve had. Moist, loaded with fresh pineapple and other fruits but still light.
The avocado there are HUGE, and usually eaten sweet
Pao de quiejo, a cheesy bread with seriously addictive qualities
An example of the street food, a chicken and bacon “burger” topped with potato sticks, egg, corn, and raisons. Sounds weird, tastes amazing. They also make their hotdogs like this, except it is cooked in a tomato based sauce thing. Its really good late night street food.
A meal I cooked for myself, pasta and avocado, eaten with hot sauce
This was a mousse like dessert made from a fruit they have there called maracuja, Im not sure if it goes by a different name or is even found in the US, but it is REALLY good.
It was an amazing trip full of different flavors, adventures, and experiences.
