Brazil’s cuisine is as varied as its geography and culture.  Perhaps the most emblematic national dish is the Feijoada (a hearty stew made of black beans and pork meat, served with white rice). However, in each region, food will have its flavors and mixtures.  In Bahia, there is a flavorful African influence, consisting mostly of seafood, beans, coconut milk, and palm oil, and very spicy. The Churrasco (barbecue) is about Argentinean influence, very typical from the South of the country. Except for salt, the meats are cooked with no spices or sauces, because the Chef wants to show his guests that the quality and flavor of the meat does not need to be camouflaged.
