The Federal District of Brazil (Brasilia)
Capital Region of Brazil
The Federal District of Brazil was cobbled together in five years’ time back in the sixties. Although it does not really have its own culinary specialty, the district brings together the food traditions from the entire country and even from all over the world and thus offers a diversity worthy of any great Capital.
Brazilian cuisine is a blend of products from several continents that are carefully prepared in accordance with indigenous, Portuguese and African culinary traditions.
