Briarpatch Co-op Cooking Classes: The Exotic Flavors of Brazil


With Deanna Figueira

At the center of African/Brazilian culture in Brazil, Bahian cuisine combines the flavors of both regions with delicious results. In class we will make the regional dish of Bahia, Moqueca de Camarão com Banana (a coconut milk shrimp stew with plantain), Pão de Queijo (cheese bread balls), Bolo de Fubá (corn cake), and Farofa. Gluten-free.
A new teacher for BriarPatch, Deanna has been the owner of a B&B in Bahia for the past 11 years. She has studied with chefs local to the area and loves to weave regional foods into the meals she prepares for her guests.
