the buzz





The fifth largest country in the world, Brazil borders every nation in South America except Chile and Ecuador. Under Portuguese control for three centuries until the 1800s, Brazil’s people today are a unique blend of their Indian, African, Asian, and European ancestors. The food of Brazil is as eclectic as its people, with each region displaying its own distinctive cooking style. Cuisine in the north is heavily influenced by its native Indian population, and similarly to their ancestors, the average person’s diet consists largely of freshwater fish and root vegetables like manioc. In the south, Brazilian cowboys, or gauchos, inspired regional mainstay churrasco, Brazil’s take on grilled meats. And in the country’s urban heart, Rio de Janeiro, the national dish feijoada completa, a bean and meat stew, is especially popular. Staples throughout the entire country include rice and beans and a dizzying array of exotic fruits, which are often squeezed and served up fresh at one of Brazil’s countless juice bars.
