This is a plea to anyone out there who knows any fantastic, traditional Brasilian dishes. I am currently studying in the cold, grey, frozen land of northern England and I have met a fantastic girl from Bela Horizonte who is studying here too. She tells me about Brasil daily and I can't help feeling sorry for her being stuck in this dark British landscape. I want to bring some Brasilian warmth to her if I can, especially during this Christmas season in which she won't see her family. I want to attempt to make her something that will make her feel more at home. My cooking skills are minimal, but I'd like to try. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Andrew, try these sites:

My wife is also from Minas Gerais and the food there is very meat driven: pork loin, beef, black beans, farofa, etc. If you can make her pão de queijo (cheese bread) she might marry you :-)

Boa sorte!

I'm an American that spent almost a year in Rio and really miss the Brazilian dishes. Randy Paul mentioned cheese bread and it was absolutely delicious in Rio. I have managed to make a poor substitute by using canned bread sticks (I'm a bachelor!) that you put in the oven. I cut them into halves and wrap them around small pieces of mozarella cheese. I would also like to find farofa (or how to make it). I really enjoyed it with black beans. (I spent spome time in MG state too ... BEAUTIFUL country)Good Luck!

hey guys, Iīm brazilian and have lived in the US for 4 months, so I know how it feels to crave for some food from home... Farofa is a very typical dish and itīs really easy to make, if you can find the main ingredient which is manyoc flour (Iīm not sure how to spell it). If you get that, just cook some onions in a frying pan until theyīre golden and then throw the flour inside and mix it well for around 5 minutes. Thatīs it! Believe it or not, itīs absolutely delicious and you can add whatever you want to it: olives, eggs, bananas... but thatīs a step ahead... Another thing thatīs gonna melt your friendīs heart is brigadeiro: just throw condensed milk and some powdered chocolate in a pan with a littel bit of butter and stirr it unltil it thickens. You can eat it while itīs still warm, just put it in a plate and get some spoons. Itīs perfect for a cold night with a good video tape. I hope this helps!
