Cuisine in Brazil

What can you expect from the cuisine in Brazil? Our experts have some tips to share with you.

The food of Brazil includes many delicious dishes imbued with tropical flavors and inspired by bounteous nature and the colorful culture of Brazil. With so much coastline, agriculture and tropical rainforests, Brazilian cuisine is based around staple products such as rice, manioc, fresh seafood, beans, and exotic fruits.

The cornerstone at almost every Brazilian table is rice and beans, which are of course present in the national dish feijoada. Another traditional dish is moqueca, a stew served in a hot clay pot and accompanied with either rice or a manioc flour paste called farofa. This dish is most common in the Bahia region in the Northeast.

Visit juice bars and cafes on one of our luxury Brazil tours – they serve up Brazil’s famous coffee and also a plethora of exotic juices and smoothies. After a day strolling the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, nothing is more refreshing than a fresh smoothie!

WHAT OUR GUESTs SAY

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
