Lesson Transcript

Hello everyone, this is Jade Furuta and welcome to Portuguese weekly words. Today’s theme is Famous Brazilian food, wow! I really like this topic, especially because it’s Brazilian food. Umm
Feijoada. This is probably the most famous Brazilian dish. Feijoada is black beans. It looks a lot like a stew, a very dark stew. So the first time you see it, some people get a little bit scared because it’s like black, like really black. It’s normally a very strong flavor and a really nice smell. There are pieces of pork in it, like pork tail, ears. The reason is because this is a slave dish. It’s amazing! Uma delícia! So delicious.
Eu adoro comer feijoada.

pastel, a very popular snack. It’s very common to eat “pastel” with sugarcane. It’s a deep fried pastry and there is filling in it. You can choose, there is like cheese, pizza, chicken, meat. There are like many, many different flavors and you can just pick the one that you like. It’s definitely a must try.

brigadeiro. Yes, it already makes me smile. Yeah I would say my favorite Brazilian sweet. Super, super sweet. It’s very easy to make. Actually it is just a condensed milk and cocoa powder and some butter. You have to mix a lot and if you overcook, it’s going to become a candy. You don’t want that.
