Oohhh, I ate too much Feijoada, it was so good!  Brazil’s national dish is a stew made of black beans, pork (including earns, knuckles, chops and sausage) and dried beef.  It is served with rice, decorated with collard greens and sliced oranges.  It is a hearty dish; restaurants regularly serve it on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Brazil is the only Latin American nation whose language and culture come from Portugal. The early explorers brought back a wood that produced a red dye, “pau-brasil”, from which the land received its name.  Brazilians are one of the most welcoming people in the world; foreigners are treated with respect and often with admiration.

Purrs,   Gulliver
