There are more than a few Brazilian restaurants in Ireland now and that is a very good thing, as the World Cup hosts have some of the very best food in the world. We're going to look at our favourite five foodstuffs from Brazil over the next few days and we will start with the nearest thing Brazil has to a national dish; feijoada.
Feijoada is a stew of beans with beef and pork which originated in Portugal and it travelled to Brazil with the colonists. While the original Portuguese version is chiefly made with white beans, the Brazilian version is made with delicious black beans and the meat they use is different too.
A Brazilian Feijoada is made with salted pork or beef, and usually some spiced or smoked meat or sausage is also used.
Served with some rice and perhaps some additional sausage, it is a hearty, tasty meal that will set you up for the day.
