The Daring Cooks October 2012: Brazilian food!

Rachel Dana was our October 2012 Daring Cooks' Challenge hostess! Rachel brought Brazil into our lives by challenging us to make Feijoada and Farofa along with some other yummy side dishes traditionally served with Feijoada, which is a delicious black bean and pork stew.

This was a delicious Brazilian dish that was perfect for the cooler weather we've been having. Of course, after it looked like it was finally transitioning into a real fall, last week had temperatures forecast of 70℉.  I really enjoyed getting to sample quite a few different foods with this challenge. A real winner! 

We didn't care too much for the collard greens, but I don't think it was because of this specific preparation, I don't think we like collard greens in general. Everything else was really tasty.

Vinagrete (I forgot to put it on the plate and take a pic, so this is what you get)
Here is the Daring Cooks page with the recipe for Feijoada, Farofa, Vinagrete, Collard Greens and the Onion-Garlic base that was the flavoring that tied much of the meal together.
