SATURDAY 5TH FEBRUARY - LATIN AMERICAN / BRAZILIAN NIGHT-
Entre: - Beef Arepas:
Corn cakes stuffed with beef and cheese and served with a tomato salsa and guacamole.
Starter:- Orange and Jicama salad with sweet and spicy peppers.
The combination of jicama (a Brazilian sweet, root vegetable), oranges, lime juice, Dijon mustard, ground cumin, jalapeño, coriander and spring onion makes this an incredibly refreshing and utterly delicious salad.
Main Course:- Feijoada served with Farofa (plantain, raisin and cassava flour mixture) and rice
I think to try and describe this dish will do it both an injustice if anything. In a simple layman term we could call it refried beans with pork loin, sausages, bell peppers and chorizo all vying for their place making it an explosion of flavours. The Farofa is made by boiling raisins and adding the cassava flour forming a crumbly mixture to which plantain is added then fried and served with rice, need I say more?!
Dessert:- Plum and Almond gratin served with iced coconut cream
Layers of plums, ground almond and almond flakes served hot with this home made coconut ice cream which is truly to die for. Tangy, delicious and refresh
