Feijoada and other Brasilian dishes go even better when accompanied with caipirinha. The traditional one is made with lemon but you may use any fruits.

A recipe, in English.

I finish today with the moqueca... yummy.

According to Wikipedia: Moqueca (IPA: [moˈkɛkɐ] or IPA: [muˈkɛkɐ] depending on the dialect, also spelled muqueca) is a Brazilian seafood stew based on fish, onions,garlic, tomatoes, and cilantro. It is cooked slowly, with no water added. Originally from the states of Espírito Santo in the Southeast of Brazil and Bahia; nowadays, this dish is found in two different variants: moqueca capixaba from Espírito Santo, and moqueca baiana from Bahia state in the Northeast region. Brazilians have been making moqueca for at least 300 years.

We do the moqueca with any kind of fish and also shrimp, crab, lobster, etc.


It'll look like this:

My favorite uses lobster & shrimp (although it's the most expensive Shocked):

Yes, that drink looks delicious (everything else too). There was a bar in San Franciso that used to make caipirinhas for me, very strong tasting drink.
Memphis is not so cosmopolitan, but if I can locate some cachaca, I'll make my own. I would imagine some liqour store around here might have some cachaca, I'm going to start looking around over the next few days.

That fish stew looks good too. I've had somewhat similar dishes, possibly a Spanish recipe.

Probably the paella... very similar. But I think they use rice at the paella and tomato was added later. Smile

Paella sounds familiar.
My brother-in-law from Ecuador makes the best ceviche. You can get ceviche in some Mexican restaurants around here, but its not near as good as what my brother-in-law makes.

Yes, but they normally use fishes from the Pacific and with different sauces. Fish is raw or marinated never cooked or stewed as long as I know. There are Peruvian-Ecuadorian restaurants here in Rio serving this dish too.

Yes, ceviche should be uncooked, but the lime juice sort of "cooks" it.
Its an unusual dish for the US, but you can find it sometimes.

Barreado is one of my favorite Brasilian dishes although it's not easy to find it here in Rio de Janeiro. 


The look:

I do a Puerto Rican version called Aso Pao; it's delicious but has sausage, chicken and ham instead of seafood.

This summer was too hot and dry,but September gave us unusually huge crop of wild mushrooms in forests.  Collecting wild mushrooms is kind of national sport here Smile


In two hour we with my wife collected around 5 kilos - and,what is more important,spent great time in forest near lake with a beautiful view and clear air.


Than, just cooked all mushrooms on olive oil with salt and minimal spices, it was one of the best dish I know for some days Smile

I made an all time favorite tonight, beer cheddar soup. This is a difficult soup to make correctly, and its easy to come up with a nasty mess, but tonight was perfect and what a great winter meal.
I also poured some beer in the baked beans. Wink

I went to a Brazilian restaurant about 3 week ago and they were serving caipirinhas in jugs. Nice drink, love it when you get the lime bits at the bottom. There were 10 of us and most did not like it and when we went to leave there was still a jug and half left...............Can't stand wastage Smile I reckon it hit me about an 90 minutes later whilst at the Strip Club...............It was the tree surgeons annual party and although I do not work with them I still get an invite.Beer
