Brazil Part 8: Feijoada, Brazil's National Dish

For recipes, visit

Any discussion of Brazil’s iconic dishes is incomplete without an in-depth look at the country’s national dish- feijoada completa. Feijoada is more than just a bean stew… it is a cultural rite of passage. Opting for a taste of carioca style feijoada, we travel to Ipanema to pay a visit to a true Rio classic – Chef Gilberto AraΓΊjo’s Casa da Feijoada. Many legends mistakenly attribute feijoada to the slave kitchen, but the Portuguese consumed feijoada before they ever colonized Brazil. Feijoada completa refers to the “whole meal,” served with the principal dish of stewed beans cooked with 11 different types of smoked or cured pork meats, and sausages.

    that is an African dish. look at the part of the animals they used those are the scraps they use to give to the slaves to eat. Portugal didn't have that dish post slavery unless they had African slaves in Portugal way before the transatlantic slave trade. next you gonna say samba come from.portugal. Europeans cant dance so how in the hell would they know how to dance samba if it wasn't for the Africans. flamenco and Irish river dance are the only dance I can think of that come from Europe and they fucking plain and boring.

    Personally I think the best way to make it is to cook the beans and meat together simmering for hours and letting their tasted infuse into each other.
