Ok,our next list for shopping at the supermarkets(btw,this list is special for tourists staying in aparthotels and excited to cook & buy their own food!).
Meat:Brazilian supermarkets also sell a large variety of salted meats for "feijoada"and other traditional dishes and imported salt cod,which is used in dishes of Portuguese origin,like the delicious "Bolinhos de bacalhau"!!
Lots of varieties of sausages as well,try grilling it or adding to your feijoada(follow my recipe).
Chickens in Brazil tasted delicious,and it has to do with the way they are fed and the fact that they are not so fat.Try a "galeto"(very young chicken,which you can buy already roasted,for example,at the "padarias"-see Bakery tips),it's usual at my parents home specially at the summer,none has to sweat at the kitchen,only whip up a salad!
