It's technically not a food. And it can be found in the US, it's just hard as hell to find in my city.

Cachaca! Ohhh, how I love that firey sting as it passes down your throat. Makes you feel alive! Good stuff, cheap stuff, white, gold, doesn't matter.... just gimme a bottle, some good freinds, a few chairs in the night air and we are gonna have some great times!

My favorite is "Mangueira", from of the state of Piaui. "51" is for tourists. Caipirinha is nice to sit and chill, but you can keep your lime, ice, and sugar, just gimme the good stuff straight!

There is something I used to eat as a child called jiló that my mother from Minas Gerais would prepare with angu (polenta). It's something extremely bitter that the immense majority of people would abominate. But I miss it.
I have looked for it in Southern California in latino and oriental markets without any luck. I even found a little eggplant that has the same format, only it tastes like eggplant.

Please, please, does anybody know how to get jiló in the States?

I love eating acaraje when I visit Salvador. I can cook most Brasilian foods here in Australia, but nothing beats acaraje.
Favourite alcoholic drink is capeta - has anybody ever tried it?
As for soft drinks, guarana and mate. These aren't available in Oz as soft drinks, so I enjoy them whilst in Brasil.

Best cachaça in brazil, IMHO, in terms of cost benefit is "Havaninha", AKA "Salineiras". Best over all is Abílio Santiago, AKA "Havana", but at 300 reais a bottle, it can definitely put a cramp in your style. Havaninha is only 25. Both come from Salinas in Minas Gerais.

Well, I can't complaint. Here in the US Northwest more specifically in Oregon we were able to cook all good Brazilian food. Pão de queijo, we by "Yoki" at sendex in Seattle, muqueca de peixe our Pernambucanos friends are Masters, Tutu a mineira! delicious! Feijão com arroz e farinha I have every day! I missed most cerveja Skol or Antártica! But replaced by Corona!

QUINDIM!!! Ahh, it's one of the best things I've ever eaten in my life. Fantastic!! Quite hard to find in US (some Brasilian restaurants have it occasionally, but not often, because it's pain in the a** to prepare it).

In reply to erpo - have you tried the real mate? i mean the one prepared with loose herbs into a gourd. or are you talking of some soda kind of thing? (i never saw any soda called mate, so i'm just curious...)

but yes, quindim. yumm. a very southern thing...all my friends in the southern states know it, and most of my friends from bahia and amazon haven't even heard of it... :-S

Some fruits: buriti, bacuri, acaí, murici, cupuaçu ( the names are all amerindians ). and we can transform that into  marvellous ice-creams..hum...

Maniçoba and Tacacá ( state of Pará )
Cuxá's rice (state of Maranhão)

GOIABADA COM QUEIJO!

Wondering if someone can help me with "massas para pasteis" I bought them from a mercado and the guy tried to explain how to make these, but I didnt understand fully. He said something about putting them in oil, then placing cheese in the middle and using a fork to seal it once Ive folded the pasteis. Here's the directions...Modo de usar: Retire da geladeira 15 minutos antes de usar e despois sacuda a massa para melhor soltar. Passe sobre a massa um pano bem umido. Recheie a vontade.

Put them on a humid cloth, put whatever you wish on it, fold and press with a fork to close, then cook it in oil.

Krista, regarding the real mate, "yes I have tasted it."
Whilst visiting friends in Argentina, they made it in their home for me.
They made it like a herbal tea and you sip it through a silver straw type utensil, that is shaped like a lacrosse stick. Fresh mate looks similar to marijuana and tastes like sh*t (grass clippings with boiled water). I suppose it's an acquired taste. I even took some photos of this great occassion.
In Rio, I tried sweet mate as a soft drink, but it's not a fizzy type drink. It's even available at the airport.

That we call chimarrão, and it is not very popular outside of the south of Brazil. Try making it like a normal tea and serve it either hot or cold with sugar, then you may get a better feeling as to how it tastes.

Last week I moved over to brazilian food. I bought pao de queijo (which for some reason not cook fully inside), piraque queijo(so-so), matte leao, guarana, pasteis, pastilla da mente, pacoquinha, a base de mel com acai e guarana (which tastes a little funny), and even sorriso (creme dental), on top of that I cut a banana down the middle this morning and fried it, added a little cinnamon and sugar, and it came out tasting pretty good. Today I also found a good website called http://www.cookbrazil.com (for those of you who want to make this kind of food by hand, also gives history of the food)
