a little samba music, some beans and rice…

I meet a lot of people on a day-to-day basis. I often connect with new people over a mutual interest in food and cooking. But I always like to say that I don’t really know somebody until they cook for me.

Last Saturday I and a group of locals got to know Keyla Nogueira Cook a little better when she cooked feijoada for us. It was splendid, much enjoyed by everyone. This was a very special evening thanks to my co-chef and our wonderful guests.

We all learned new words: like “farofa” for toasted cassava flour. Or “octopodes” for more than one octopus. (Don’t ask!)

See our photos of the evening in the gallery below. Buen provecho!
