Traditional Food And Drink

Food: These dishes of food are traditional at wedding ceremonies and receptions. One of the most popular dishes is called “Feijoada.” It is a mix of black beans and pork, similar to a stew, served with rice, collard greens, and “farofa.” "Farofa" is similar to couscous, but made with ground and roasted cassavas (manioc,). For dessert, the bride and groom either go with “Bem Casados,” or opt for something simple, like “Brigadeiros,” a little chocolate ball served in a small paper cup, decorated with colourful confetti.

Drinks:  The bartenders usually prepare traditional Brazilian drinks. The most famous drink is “Caipirinha”. The cocktails are also a favorite. Tropical fruits, such as pineapple, coconut, tangerines, peaches, and strawberries, serve as the main ingredients. The bartenders are skilled at making such delicious drinks.

If a wedding reception has good food and good drinks, the guests will be happy and enjoy the party that much more.
