1.Pastel de Carne, Camarao e Margherita (Meat, Shrimp and Margherita pastry) & Caipirinha
In Brazil, pastel is a typical fast-food Brazilian dish, consisting of half-circle or rectangle-shaped thin crust pies with assorted fillings, fried in vegetable oil. The result is a crispy, brownish fried pie
Caipirinha is Brazil's national cocktail, made with cachaça, sugar, and lime. The drink is prepared by mixing the fruit and the sugar together, then adding the liquor.
2.Caldo de Feijao Preto (Beans stew with fried pork cracklings)
The bean soup is a classical of the Brazilian cuisine. It is served usually as an appetizer.
3.Camarão ao Catupiry (Shrimp with Catupiry) – served with white rice
One of my favorite combinations in Brazilian cuisine is shrimp and a creamy cheese called requeijão – which is our nuttier and creamier version of cream cheese.
There is a brand of requeijão named Catupiry – which has an extra luscious texture – that is amazing with shrimp. In fact, they go together so well that there is a dish named “Camarão com Catupiry”. Translating to English, it simply became “Shrimp with Catupiry”.
4.Picanha Steak served with Farofa and Vinagrete
Picanha is a cut of beef that is popular in Brazil, and later also adopted in Portugal. In the United States, it is little known, but referred to as the top sirloin cap, rump cover, rump cap, or culotte.
Farofa is a toasted cassava or corn flour mixture with bacon and sausage and it is eaten mainly in Brazil with vinagrete salsa (chopped onions, green peppers and tomatoes, vinegar, olive oil and lime. They make a great accompaniment for grilled meat.
5. Pave de morango com ganache de chocolate (Strawberry&Chocolate Ganache Pave)
A dessert with layers sweet cookies (lady fingers) and sweet cream custard with different kinds of fruits & nuts Then topped with another of sweet creamy custard, strawberries, and dark chocolate ganache.
