About a month ago, on a white cold winter afternoon, I ordered a plate of fejoida at Taste of Brasil Café. As my server brought my lunch to me, a man at a neighboring table spotted it go by: his eyes widened as he exclaimed, "What is that?!"
Feijoada, the Brazilian national dish, is served at Taste of Brasil Café with a bright green tangle of lightly cooked collards, a few orange slices, mound of white rice, and toasty gold farofa, which is cassava root fried crunchy. The feijoada is made primarily of beans, cuts of meat and sausage – it's the kind of super-hearty lunch that feels so good when it's cold outside.
I liked this dish so much, I worked with Village Hall's Joe Kreml and Patrick Rollens to produce a video about it as part of our series, "You Really Should Eat This." So please, watch…and then go eat the feijoada at Taste of Brasil Café.
