1. Characterize Brazil


Brazil is located in South America. Thanks to its territorial extension, Brazil is a country of continental dimensions. The population of Brazil is 203 million. There are three types of climate in Brazil: equatorial, tropical and temperate. The equatorial climate covers a large part of the country, especially the Amazon rainforest region, where it rains almost daily and is very hot. The tropical climate varies depending on the region, but it is also hot and with less regular rainfall.


The types of Brazilian gastronomy are grilled, cooked, roasted, steamed, sautéed…

Types of confection

Brazilian cuisine is the result of a mix of European, indigenous and African ingredients. Many of the components of the recipes and preparation techniques are of indigenous origin, having been modified by the Portuguese and slaves from Africa, who adapted their typical dishes, replacing the missing ingredients with local equivalents. The main products of Brazilian gastronomy are: Feijoada, cheese bread, açaí, sun-dried meat, tapioca, barbecue...



Beans are a typical seed of the region and are not missing in traditional dishes such as tropeiro beans, tutu and the incomparable feijoada. Made with black beans and pork in a thousand and one ways, feijoada is a dish that represents Brazilian culture well because it is not made in individual portions, but in a large clay pot to bring people together for a hearty and filling meal. of side dishes such as rice, farofa, cabbage and orange.

Bobó de camarão

Bobó is a full-bodied Afro-Brazilian stew made with shrimp, coconut milk, palm oil and various other ingredients. It's very typical of northeastern Brazil and has similarities to moqueca, but the biggest difference is that shrimp bobó also contains manioc flour to make it extra juicy. The classic accompaniment to this dish is soft white rice to balance out the strength of the well-seasoned shrimp bobó.


Paçoca breaks sales and consumption records during a specific period of the year alongside pé-de-moleque and pé-de-moça: the June festivities. The sweet treat is even better when prepared at home and is also used as an ingredient in desserts such as paçoca pudding and paçoca cake. And don't confuse it with another very Brazilian recipe: paçoca com carne de sol is a savory dish made with meat and cassava.
