In contrast to some countries that are famous for their splendid food, Brazil has yet to fully embrace the art of gastro self-promotion. Which is a shame, as Brazil has the largest variety of fruits, vegetables, fish, roots, trees, and flowers. In fact, it has dozens of recipes and styles of eating that are culturally unique and rich. Inevitably, it’s only a matter of time before the world catches on. So, follow our tips, and you’ll be in on the secret before everyone else.
