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!!!
Lunch from the Inhotim Museum The absolute BEST fried chicken I have ever had, made by a cute old lady near a remote area by a waterfall
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
Above are some breakfasts from the hotel
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
This takes like melted brownie and is SO easy to make, recipe to follow
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
The fried looking things are Tropeiro, its fried pork belly, served with beans that are cooked with eggs and a type of flour
The above was from a house party, they made a lot of meat, then grilled bananas
Pasteis, a fried heaven, filled with whatever you want
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.

this post is definitely excellent. I’m very happy that his days in Brasil were well used and that you liked our food. I’m very happy to see that you shared this experience here on my blog. I hope your blog has a lot of success. Desire and hope you have other amazing experiences! I’m developing a blog about cooking and if you want can be a columnist. It would be a pleasure. We can talk about it when you want.
Aw thanks! That would be amazing! To say I enjoyed my time there would be an understatement!!! I loved every minute, thanks for helping make such a great experience!
