What to Expect
Ida’s Bahian cooking is richly flavored with coconut milk and dende (palm oil). She is a seafood lover and gets the freshest fish from the fishermen who bring the catch in right near her house. You might start with a sampler platter of raw local fruits and vegetables to introduce you to the flavors and then prepare galinha moqueada (seasoned, wood-roasted chicken served in a spicy broth, this dish can also be made vegetarian with tofu replacing the chicken), arumadinho (fresh fish wrapped in a banana leaves and roasted on the grill, served with salad, cassava, black eyed peas, fried bananas and fried green onions), ensopado de carneiro (goat stewed with a variety of spices and vegetables), moqueca (typical Brazilian fish stew flavored with palm oil), seafood ceviche, clams steamed in beer and broth or beiju (tapioca crepes stuffed with a variety of sweet and savory fillings). 

Join Ida to learn about Brazilian culture, local fruits and vegetables and prepare a delicious Bahian meal your taste-buds will thank you for!
