Food and Drink in Brazil

Brazil is a gourmet’s paradise. Each region in Brazil features many savoury typical dishes, always made with very fresh raw materials. International cuisine is found all over the country, simple or sophisticated, but always very tasty and fresh. Fruits are a must in the country, of most various kinds, due to the climatic diversity of the continent-sized territory, from the ones typical of cold regions to the most colourful, tasty and sweet tropical fruits used in juices, ice-cream and desserts, or enjoyed in their natural form. Brazilian beverages are fruit juices, guarana (a soft drink made out of an Amazonian fruit). Caipirinhas is made with sugar, lime, and cachaça (a spirit fermented from sugarcane juice), and lots of crushed ice.
