Feijoada is the most famous Brazilian dish around the world. Even that it comes from the European culinary tradition, it got popular around Brazil as a dish from slaves and poor people that couldn’t afford expensive food but they needed lots of energy to work every day. Nowadays feijoada is a typical food that is very popular to eat in Brazilian celebrations or parties.
If feijoada is the most popular food in Brazil, samba is the most popular music and dance. Imagine to mix feijoada, samba and Portuguese talking together in a big and popular party! This is what we did last Saturday when we visited a Quadra da Mangueira to have a Feijoada. Mangueira is a famous Escola de Samba in Rio de Janeiro and they celebrate once per month the Feijoada da Mangueira.
The Feijoada da Mangueira was a good opportunity for our Portuguese students to get together with Brazilian people, to listen some pagode and samba, to have a taste that how Rio’s Carnival is, to enjoy a delicious food and to talk a lot of Portuguese as they were enjoying around and having fun.
