What are the main kinds of Brazilian cuisine?
We have different cuisines in the north, south and the east, influenced by Portugal, Africa and Holland.

One favourite item that cuts across regions and cultures?
Feijoada. Earlier, the slaves would get the bad parts of pork which would be left over — ears, nose, tail. These would be boiled with black beans. Now it is no longer slave food, but liked by all!

Rice, boiled with garlic, onion and salt; purple beans boiled; and beef steak.
