This week wraps up the largest Brazilian holiday, Carnival. Carnival is an annual festival celebrating the beginning of Lent that is a nationwide celebration throughout Brazil. In honor of this fun holiday we thought it fitting to highlight a local Brazilian baker and chocolatier, The Sweet Brigadier.
Marcela Ferrinha, owner and chef of The Sweet Brigadier, specializes in the the classic Brazilian truffle, brigadeiro. Her truffles are so good that we had to ask for her recipe for these classic Brazilian truffles.
