Live from Woodspoon in Downtown Los Angeles


Join the greatest Natalia Pereira as she shows us how to make one of the most traditional deliciousnesses from Brazil!

Moqueca is a heritage Brazilian dish with a lineage that goes back well over 400 years. Hailing from a region now delineated the the state of Espirito Santo on Brazil’s central coast up to the Northeastern states of Bahia, Pernambuco and Para. Its origin most likely derives from a method of cooking used by indigenous Brazilian Indians called moquém in the Tupi language, simply refering to fish or meat, tubers, vegetables and fruits wrapped in leaves then slowly roasted over a fire. This method of preparation allows the ingredients to cook in their own juices, creating a flavorful and more nutritious result than simply roasting over an open flame.
