Organised by fellow chefs Flavio Amaral and Junior Menezes, early May saw the launch of the Brazil Gastronomic festival – the first event of its kind to showcase the culinary skills of Brazil’s many professional UK-based chefs.
The festival was held at the Brazilian Embassy in central London and featured a two day programme of workshops and masterclasses.
A number of specialist food and ingredient suppliers exhibited, as did importers of Brazilian beer, coffee, cachaça and wines of Brazil ( represented by Go Brazil!).
Overall, this was a successful and well attended launch event, and one which we understand will be repeated at different venues in the future.
