São Paulo, Brazil
Mara Salles has been awakening food memories by bringing typical Brazilian dishes up to date at Tordesilhas for 25 years. A trailblazer who helped put her native cuisine on the map, many dishes are prepared atop wood stoves in a nod to traditional culinary techniques. Showcasing the diversity of Brazil’s regions such as the Amazon is at Tordesilhas’ heart, with highlights including tacacá, an Amazonian broth prepared with tucupi, jambu, tapioca and dried shrimp. Do not miss the feijoada, a crowd-pleasing and immensely popular Brazilian Saturday lunchtime favourite of bean, beef and pork stew. Wash it all down with something from the wide-ranging cachaça menu.
