Whether you’re hardcore footie fans, or you can’t tell the Ronaldos from Ronaldinho, here’s a piece of World Cup 2014 action both you and your man can savour.
Brazil Pop Up Diner is an innovative dining concept: a series of pop-up supper clubs taking place on 11 Sundays in London from March through June.
The diner, held at Bedford & Strand restaurant, is inviting Londoners on a culinary tour of the 12 Brazilian cities hosting the World Cup in summer.
You can sample a mix of dishes drawn from the country’s indigenous, African, and Portuguese heritage. They’re also serving up Brazilian music, caipirinhas (yum) and cocktails to keep things lively. Lunch or dinner is £35 per head and comes with a free drink, and 50p from every cocktail is being donated to Action against Hunger.
I love the Brazilian food I’ve tried, from feijoada (a sausage and black bean stew) to Churrascaria grills to native snacks like pao de queijo. There’s actually quite a bit of crossover with stuff we eat in Nigeria such as cassava, plantain and the fried bean snack acaraje (we call it akara).
The next event on Sunday Mar 23 will feature recipes from Manaus, promising exotic fruit and giant river fish served fresh along the table!
Take your finest catch.
Brazil Pop Up Diner is at 1a Bedford St, WC2E 9HH (Covent Garden tube). Reservations at firstname.lastname@example.org
