Texas de Brazil Offers Tips and Recipes for an Authentic Brazilian Carnival Celebration

Chicago, IL – Carnival, celebrated February 20-24, is Brazil’s largest annual celebration of the year. The four day party came to South America from Europe as a celebration marking the beginning of the 40 day Lent season starting on Saturday and ending on Fat Tuesday. Every year Carnival attracts millions of people from throughout the country and around the globe to witness a passionate expression of culture and tradition.

Each Brazilian city chooses its own Carnival celebratory traditions including but not limited to masquerades, parades, singing, dancing, music, a variety of social gatherings and of course, feasts. The celebration can now be experienced here in the U.S. as Texas de Brazil offers to share the taste of Carnival, a traditional event believed to have originated from the Italian words, “carne vale,” meaning farewell to meat. Those looking for a delicious last meal with the spotlight on meat must look no further. Texas de Brazil, a classic Brazilian Churrascaria style restaurant, offers a wide selection of mouth-watering meats and recipes that will bring the Carnival celebration to life right before your eyes.

Heat up the grill and prepare to be blown away with these Brazilian treats that are perfect for a authentic Carnival celebration.

Recipes include:

•   Caipirinha cocktail – Brazil’s signature cocktail, the Caipirinha is made with cachaca, an intensely sweet Brazilian style rum and is the perfect start, and end to any Carnival celebration.
•   Brazilian Feijoada  – Carnival’s signature dish and the perfect comfort food on a cold winter night, the Feijoada is a stew made of several types of meat cooked with beans and traditionally served with a side of white rice, salad and peeled oranges.
•   Churrasco de Fraldinha – In Brazil, churrasco is the term for barbecue and Fraldinha is the term for Flank steak. The Churrasco de Fraldinha is a meal for meat lovers only; Brazilians use the best meat and cooking technique so no sauce is needed.
•   Brazilian Vinaigrette – Similar to Pico de Gallo or salsa the Brazilian vinaigrette can be made as spicy or mild as needed and is traditionally served over meats.  
•   Papaya Cream – An easy to make dessert that will have you thinking it is summertime already. Papaya Cream is a chilled dessert of fresh papaya and cream, a popular and traditional Brazilian treat.

Texas de Brazil offers guests a truly unique Brazilian experience, complete with sword carrying Gauchos, a.k.a. Brazilian cowboys, who roam the room serving various delectable cuts and types of meats. For more information visit www.texasdebrazil.com.
