Bring South America to your kitchen

We’ve caught the Olympics bug over at field&flower. Did anyone else watch the cycling last weekend? How beautiful is Rio?

It’s not just Rio that’s caught our eye, it’s also their cuisine. We love a good Brazilian/South American recipe and there are plenty to go around!

1. One of our top sauces to get with steak is chimichurri. It descends from Argentinian cooking and is a big hit on the BBQ. Try it with a juicy rump steak or thinly sliced bavette. Our recipe of the week for a Chivito even includes it!

2. Dishes like Feijoada are a Brazillian/Portuguese fusion, a comforting stew made of black beans, pork cuts and warming spices. We like to use a mixture of pork knuckle, pork ribs and pork shoulder for this dish.

3. And we all know that Brazilians know how throw a great BBQ! Think Churrasco Frango, a marinaded grilled chicken. For a sticky, sweet grill, try skewering boneless chicken thighs and marinate in smoked paprika, lemon juice, brown sugar, garlic and oil. Pop them on the BBQ et voila!

4. And last but not least, the best way to enjoy South American cuisine is alongside a Caipirhina!

How to make one…

2 shots of Cacacha,

1tsp sugar,

Juice of 1 lime

Lots of ice!

Muddle the ice, lime and sugar together and pour the Cacacha on top for a refreshing taste of Brazil!
