Awesome wine and food pairing in Sao Paulo, Brazil
Last Friday, Guilherme, Marcelo and I had a chance to visit the famous Churracaria Jardineira Grill in Sao Paulo, Brazil. You can check their website @ http://www.jardineiragrill.com.br. Unfortunately, at this moment, it's only in Portuguese, but you can get a feeling of the place with some of the images available.
Our intention was to match some delicious Brazilian food (who said meat?) with our wines (3 reds, 2 whites and 1 dessert). The results? Some incredible and delicious combinations! Picanha in garlic sauce with a 2001 Cab was probably the favorite... but there were so many other great matches that I don't want to be unfair with the other great dishes and wines that we had.
We will try now to get some of their recipes to post on TheWineHub site, but the Churrascarias are very protective of their secrets... we'll let you know if we succeed.
Excellent service at your disposal, but you can feast with some many delicacies at their amazing buffet.
“The crew” enjoying some delicious desserts. The winner of the day? Chocolate mousse with Tischida's Zweigelt Eiswein. Out of this world!
Our moto? It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it – and that’s us! TheWineHub.com
Bottom line: if you are ever in Sao Paulo, this is not to be missed.
