All you can eat

June 1, 2008

Before signing up to GSE programme few members of the team had much of an idea of what to expect from Brazilian food.

Since their arrival in Rio they have tasted many types of food.  Lots of different cuts of meat, lots of amazonian fruits/juices that are only available in Brazil, and a wide variety of deserts. 

The team thought you might be interested in finding out a bit about the food and have therefore compiled a page about food which will be added to as their time in Brazil passes.

Yacht club feijoada

May 31, 2008

On Saturday the team were invited by Antonio to lunch at the Rio de Janeiro naval club.  Unfortunately the weather wasn’t conducive to a trip in his boat but the feijoada at the club and the company were certainly worth the visit.
