Food tells a story

eating brazilian moqueca

I had the pleasure of attending a cooking class with Simone, where we prepared an array of delicious Brazilian dishes, including queijo coalho, caipirinhas, moqueca, and brigadeiro. Throughout the class, Simone shared fascinating insights into Brazilian history and how the country’s cuisine has evolved over time. The experience was truly amazing, offering the perfect blend of fun and learning. Not only did I learn how to cook traditional Brazilian food, but I also gained a deeper understanding of its cultural significance. I would highly recommend attending another event with Simone – it was an unforgettable experience!

how to make caipirinha

In this class with Chef Simone, we learned that food tells a story. She shared with us the origins of Brazilian cuisine and its roots, spanning Indigenous, African, and Portuguese influences. Afterward, we had the opportunity to make a delicious and refreshing Maracujá (Passion Fruit) and Limão (Lime) caipirinha. Of course, we also learned how to prepare Brazilian appetizers such as Grilled Cheese with the Chef’s special Spicy Guava Sauce (Queijo coalho com molho de goiabada apimentada) and Italian Sausage with a vinaigrette sauce. The main course (and the one we were most excited about) was the traditional Moqueca! And to top it all off, she taught us how to make the famous brigadeiro! It was the easiest to make and definitely a great finish for those of us with a sweet tooth.
