Experience traditional dishes of Brazil!
Sandra was born in the Bahia region of northern Brazil and was introduced to the kitchen at a young age while assisting her mother in her small bed and breakfast.
She learned about fresh foods from her father who operated a fruit market. Here began her exposure to healthy eating as they prepared foods they had grown ourselves.
Her Brazilian cuisine draws on her culture that all meals, no matter how large or how small, are special events among family and friends!
“I would like to bring to the Pacific Northwest our real Brazilian food, from my childhood, from my roots, using what we used to eat at home such as cassava, okra, coconut, and palm oil. We have beautiful and colorful food with influences of Indigenous, Portuguese and Africans. The state where I was born, in Bahia, describes this mixture of three cultures very well.”
She was featured on Evening Magazine king5.com during the International Women Day, March10, 2021 and during the World Food Day Celebration in October, 2021. Also featured on the New Day Northwest on August 16, 2022, sharing her recipe for farofa and an iconic Brazilian cocktail.

Our mission is to inspire our community to eat fresh and healthy without wasting food. We provide instruction in meal planning, focusing on utilization of unprocessed foods as much as possible.

We are here to deliver outstanding customer service, food experiences and on a daily basis, help our customers reduce waste and processed food.

Brazil - The culture, people & food
The Portuguese explorer Pedro Cabral in 1500 stepped foot on the South American land that would become Brazil. European influence of the indigenous society began. As agriculture developed in this colony, enslaves from west Africa were brought into the colony. This mixture of the 3 continental influences established a unique cuisine. Brazil, also has a strong presence of Asian and Middle East populations.
Brazil is one of the largest countries in the world by land mass. The country has various geographical regions, each providing a variety of foods. Brazil has been a major exporter of coffee and sugar cane. It is one of the largest providers of meat proteins in the world. The long coast line provides a source for seafood. This multicultural country and the variety of foods have given rise to several different cuisines which have some regional distribution.
Feijoada, the Brazilian national dish, is made by cooking black beans, and smoked meats for several hours. It served with white rice, collard greens, and farofa, (toasted yuca flour with spices, onion and garlic). Each state adapted the preparation according to their own style. The concept is the same-the beans and meats need to be in the same pan.
Caipirinha is the national cocktail, made with cachaca (sugar cane rum), sugar, lime, and ice. The flavor is so special that you will drink at least two caipirinhas.
The weather, hospitality and the colorful soul from Brazil make this Country special and unique.
