Many types of food are eaten in Brazilian cuisine. These vary largely depending on what region in Brazil you are in. This is because different crops thrive in each region, and so different foods can be made in each one. Given Brazil is one of the largest countries in the world, this leaves quite a lot of room for variation.

In the southeast region, which is probably the most well known as it has the cities Rio de Janiero and Sao Paulo, the most common ingredients in food are pork, beans, chicken and soft cheeses. A common dish here is ‘frango com quiabo’, which translates as chicken with okra. Many immigrants live in this part of Brazil, and so the cuisine is also influenced heavily by the likes of Italian, Spanish, and Lebanese foods.

In the north of Brazil, the cuisine is mostly influenced by indigenous tribes. One of the most well known dishes in this region is ‘pato to tucupi’, which is duck in tucupi. This dish is traditionally eaten around the time of Brazilian Christmas as a celebratory dish. The north is also a region that eats a lot of sea food, and shrimps are seen as a delicacy. 

The northeast of Brazil is a highly fertile region that grows most of its own produce. Most of the population in the northeast region live on a narrow strip of land which owes its fertility to the high amount of rainfall. There are a lot of cattle ranches in this area and so meats such as beef are abundant.

A lot of the cuisine in this region is derived from afro Caribbean and Portuguese influences. A lot of the food here uses palm oil as a main ingredient. They also use home grown beans, onions and a variety of nuts in their cooking, particularly the cashew nut. A lot of fruits also grow here including mango, pineapple and papaya.

Brazilian food mainly has Portuguese, African and Native influence. The Portuguese introduced Brazilians to dried salt cod, Linguica, Spicy meat stews and desserts such as corn and rice pudding. The African people who were brought to Brazil as slaves, introduced okra, dende oil and peppercorns in this region.

The main dish of Brazil is Feijoda Completa, which is made from black beans that have been cooked with smoked meat and sausages and is generally served with rice, diced oranges, boiled greens made from vegetables and chilly sause. It is topped with toasted cassava meal. Common drinks of Brazil are Coffee, rum and beer.

The Brazilian people like to have a simple breakfast which mainly comprises of Coffee, Milk, Bread and Jam. At times they prefer to eat Cheese and Ham for breakfast with some fresh fruits at the side.

It varies according to each region (in the North and in the Central-West = Amazonia and southwards of it, you may have more river fishes; in the South you may have more barbecue), but the most usual is eating beans (of diverse kinds, depending on the region) with rice, but also spaghetti or other pasta together or not (mostly in the Northeast), diversified cooked (boiled) or raw vegetables, maybe some puree (from potato) or maize cream, beef (or roast or baked chicken or spring chicken, or other kind of meat - pork, goat, mutton, roast-beef) and/or some fish and/or crustaceans, manioc or tapioca flour; some still enjoy the old custom of having some jam or fruit or even cake for dessert. Brazilians in general tend to like and make mixtures, certainly due to their mixed origins.
