Journey into Rio de Janeiro’s unique local food scene on a Brazilian flavour adventure just for you!
On this private group Rio de Janeiro food tour, you and your travel mates will discover and learn not only the history of the three most traditional recipes in Brazil, but also learn their secrets — we’re talking about the famous caipirinha drink, the delicious feijoada meal, and the delectable brigadeiro dessert.
You’ll meet your guide at the most classic hotel in Rio de Janeiro, the Copacabana Palace Hotel. From there, we’ll show you how locals navigate the city by riding the subway to our Rio Urban Adventures HQ, just one station down the line.
Your yummy experience will start by mixing up all the flavours of the night, as you’ll sample a creative new appetizer, deliciously designed to be the starter of our tour: the feijoadeiro, or feijoada brigadeiro. It will be accompanied by a traditional caipirinha, which matches the feijoadeiro perfectly.
Then, once you’ve got your taste buds tingling, it’s time for a hands-on cooking class with a local chef. Your private chef will teach you about the cultural uniqueness of the feijoada, and explain all the little secrets you need to know to prepare this classic Brazilian dish.
As well, you’ll get a lesson in preparing a typical brigadeiro, Brazil’s national truffle that is typically enjoyed at children’s birthday parties.
Once it’s all ready, you’ll savour your Brazilian dinner in a friendly local setting, tasting centuries of local history.
Come enjoy yourself and indulge your taste buds in a way you won’t find anywhere else but in Rio de Janeiro!
