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. Follow #gygilocals for more local artisans inspiring the Salt Lake landscape one delicious creation at a time!
Picking out gifts for loved ones can be the highlight of the holiday season, but spending a few frantic hours in a crowded mall in an attempt to find that special something (whatever it may be) can be discouraging. Instead, why not spend a few hours in your kitchen making something from scratch? Not only are food gifts delicious, but homemade gifts always feel a bit more personal and thoughtful. It will come as no shock that we are totally onboard with homemade food gifts (we tend to think with our stomachs most of the time), so we’ve come up with a bunch of great edible gift ideas that are as easy as they are delicious!
