Rio de Janeiro – Botanical Garden (Jardim Botanico)

My name is Hilary and I live in Ohio.  “Cooking like a Carioca” documents my attempts to re-create classic Brazilian dishes and drinks in America.

My interest in Brazilian culture started as a “fling” and is now a borderline obsession.  I’m convinced that anyone who’s had the opportunity to visit The Marvelous City, Rio de Janeiro, shares my enthusiasm.  So here’s to bringing Carioca cooking to the States!

“To be a Carioca is to be happy about life, to feel free and be authentic. There are two kinds of Cariocas, the ones who are born here, and the ones who come to visit and take Rio in their hearts when they leave.”
