I recently went to Rio for my bachelorette with a group of 6 other girls. We decided to sign up for a cooking class with Chef Simone (in her adorable restaurant in Centro)! We were not disappointed! Simone is passionate about her culture, her food and about love in general. She was so excited to hear I'm getting married and poured some cachaca cocktails for us to cheer with! The entire morning was so high-spirited because of Simone. She would get excited about everything!
We learned how to make feijoada and cachaca cocktails, and everyone in the group was given the chance to contribute to a certain aspect of each part of the meal. Most interesting for me was to learn about how certain ingredients complement or don't complement each other, and how to blend the ingredients together that don't necessarily work well together. My favourite part of the meal was at the very beginning when Simone fried up some polenta for us to snack on while she started to explain all the different ingredients she would be using for the feijoada. All in all, the experience was wonderful and we enjoyed the class/lunch thoroughly!
