Casa Brasil – The Line-up Continues – Do Come and Visit Us!
With Casa Brasil in full flow London is getting a taste of South America and there’s still plenty to come if you haven’t been to the show in Covent Garden.
The Chefs’ Forum were invited to partner with Casa Brasil to showcase Brazilian food, restaurants and ingredients and our chefs have been an integral part of the occasion.
Catherine Farinha, Director of The Chefs’ Forum said: “Every day has been brilliant. There’s so much to learn about Brazil. It’s such a massive country with so many cultures and subcultures that until you go there, or come to a show like Casa Brasil, you literally have no idea.
“It’s been a great honour for us to partner with the Brazilian Government to help them showcase Brazil. Our chef and student network have all enjoyed what they’ve learnt so far and there’s plenty more to come!”
Exose Grant, Executive Chef at BLVD Manchester, said: “Casa Brazil was amazing. I did a dish called Escondidinho-style Brazilian cottage pie. We swapped the potato for casava and the result was so delicious. I had no idea of the range of ingredients that come from Brazil.”
Catherine Farinha commented: “The Escondidinho-style cottage pie was a great example of marrying a classic Brazilian dish with something familiar in the UK. The casava topping worked so well. And then we filled the room with spiced rum and did bananas three ways. And all that followed a coffee session with Notes Coffee.”
