More ideas to consider
The idea for a theme evening above has a luxurious seafood main course. It is an exceptional dish that will impress all , especially at a special occasion The ingredients, however, can be pretty expensive, and certainly cannot be considered every day by any sense of the imagination.
For a less extravagant meal, why not try Coxinhas ( Chicken Croquettes) as a starter; follow that by Frango Churrasco ( Spicy grilled chicken) and then end with Mousse de chocolate com pimenta ( chocolate mousse with Chillies)
And how about Caldo de feijão ( a black bean soup with garlic, onions and Chillies)? Follow that with Acaraje with Vatapa and end with Canjica (a porridge like dessert made with whole corn kernels, milk, sugar and non-traditionally, with a sprinkling of Chilli flakes, of course).
Another option could be starting with Abacaxi Picante com Manchego ( spicy cheese and pineapple skewers) , Dobradihna ( a hot and spicy tripe stew) as the main and finishing with Brigadeiro ( don’t forget to add some Chillies. They go brilliantly with chocolate)).
Other mains include Vaca Atolada ( thick meat stew made with beef ribs, tomatoes, onions, cassava, Chillies and garlic and Mocotó ( a thick stew that African slaves first made with meat offcuts)
These can be ser`ved with side dishes like Farofa (Fried Cassava flour ), Brazillian collard greens and Brazilian vinaigrette salad. Another essential accompaniment would be Pão de Queijo ( cassava flour rolls with cheese)
And what would a theme party without serving the favourite beverages of the country?
Other drinks to consider are Brazilian wine, Limonada Suíça (Swiss lemonade) and Cajuína (a non-alcoholic drink made with blended cashew apples)
After all that, why not end the meal with a fine Brazilian coffee. It is some of the best in the world!
