While the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Brazilian cuisine tends to be the famous churrascarias, Brazilian cuisine has much more to offer than endless steak. Join local chef Emme Collins in class where you’ll explore the food from the northeastern state of Bahia. You’ll learn the story of how enslaved African people, Portuguese colonizers, and indigenous Brazilians developed Bahian cuisine, known for its vibrant colors and flavor. On the menu: Moqueca de peixe (seafood stew with coconut milk, lime, and tomato); feijão fradinho (braised black eyed peas); arroz (garlic rice); vatapá (creamed peanut with dried shrimp); and molho de pimenta (spicy Brazilian style pico de gallo).
