Brazil Carnival Food
What is it?
Carnival is a party season in Brazil, and food is an important component
and part of this traditional party. During this season, many different
intense foods, some of them typical in parties, can be seen in Brazilian
homes, restaurants, and even streets.
Feijoada is, of course, the king. This dish can always be found during
Brazil carnival. Since this is a heavy dish, it is usually eaten after
the parades or at any time when people know they can rest a while
after eating it.

During carnival in Brazil there are some foods you will surely find
