Cooking with Bunyaad – Brazilian Takeover

It’s our Brazilian Takeover of Cooking with Bunyaad!

With our normal chef Yousaf out on the road, partners-in-crime & the kitchen Gil and Wanessa will be taking us to their country of culinary heritage, Brazil, with an exceptional tropical coconut fish dish Peixada perfect for quick summer dinners. We’ll help you craft a side of Brazilian rice and a special Avocado Cream for dessert.

And no proper Brazilian cooking time should start without the proper drink in hand! We’ll start the evening with Gil leading us in making Brazil’s national cocktail, the caipirinha.

Complete with live music by local Brazilian-American young musician Gabby and coupled with Gil’s mixology lesson, it’s a fun evening to celebrate summer together. (Vegetarian & mocktail recipes will be included).

Cook along or just watch as we weave stories of rugs, Pakistani artisans & fair trade into our cooking. More about our fair trade rug program at
