  • Brazil brings international food favorites to its visitors

    2011-04-25

    There may be a haven for locals and tourists in Brazil who are looking to indulge their foodie side. Various districts offer several unique experiences from European dishes to local South American favorites.

    A mother-and-daughter duo has transformed their home into an elegant French bistro called Escola do Pao, on the outskirts of Rio de Janiero. The New York Times reports that tourists can indulge in sweet fruit and baked goods during brunch, then stay for a class to learn the mysteries of French cuisine.

    Brazil owes much of its culture and way of life to the influence of Portuguese cooking. Antiquarius in the Avenida Pailsta district of Sao Paulo pays homage to this connection by serving meals rarely found outside of Portugal, according to Frommer's. Specialties include açorda which is a hearty casserole consisting of shrimp, mussels and crab.

    For an elegant night out in the lush suburbs called Jardins, tourists could find a table at Figueira Rubaiyat. This establishment prides itself on its usage of extremely fresh ingredients, so much so that the owner has a personal cattle ranch where he sources his meat. But arguably the best aspect of Figueria is a giant fig tree inside surrounded by glass walls.
