Last week my husband took his annual trip to Brazil for a Brazilian Juijitsu camp. His black belt instructor resides in Brazil and one of the perks of studying under this instructor is the chance to train in Brazil. While they were there, they had the opportunity to indulge in many of the local dishes served. Some of Daddy J’s favorite things were requeijao (a cheese), guarana (in carbonated form), and Skol (his beer of choice).
But one of the favorite parts of the culinary side of the trip? Visiting the instructor’s mom’s home for home cooked meals several times during the week. They were able to immerse themselves in the language and food for the week and loved every minute of it.
The dish in the middle is a mashed potato and chicken type casserole that he said was amazing. I think the men are trying to get the recipe! Rice and beans were served with every meal. The bottle in the back was called pimienta, an incredibly hot hot sauce. Apparently the bottle was full when the week started out. (Please forgive me if I named or spelled anything wrong!)
This is where I write that I am jealous that he spent a week in Brazil!
