Kekeke… Hui, something to make you awake…. 🙂

Notice the old colonial age buildings nearer to us? I guess they must be more than 200 years old. In Rio the city council is encouraging restoration of old buildings by giving various incentives like tax incentives. So you can see that the one in bright yellow colors has been recently been renovated.

… last Saturday, went to the Show de Gastronomia.
What interests me was a cooking class called “comida cru” or “raw food”.
I saw the title of this class on the newspaper and made me think “wow! great! can learn more about raw food like salmon, or what are the other meat/fish that we can eat raw”. Who knows it is not about that at all. It was totally different from what i expected earlier. It is actually cooking in low temperature in a low temp ventilated ‘stove’, thus the “raw food” due to it is not placed on fire. Kena tipu….. but anyway, the concept is interesting!
Chef was Anna Elisa (1st photo).
She prepared 2 dishes:
#Macaroons de Chocolate com Gengibre (Macaroons of Chocolate with Ginger) (2nd photo)
#Coconut Ravioli of mushroom, brinjal and er… someting green (3rd photo)
.
Go to O Globo’s photo page of more photos of the class.
Nice photos! How does the food taste? Dunno. Didn’t get to try, coz its just a demonstration, but not inclusive of tasting. Que pena!

There’s a new reporting on her too at O Globo newspaper. Click here for Portuguese language page, and here for English translated page.

now, lets demystify the accompanying jargons:
“leh” Malay for a particle suffixed to the emphatic word in a sentence
“comida cru” Portuguese for raw food
“Kena tipu!” Malay for “was cheated!”
“Que pena!” Portuguese for “What a shame!”
