Did you know that an easy dinner party actually exists? Yup, it happens when everything is already planned out for you.
My friend Djanira of The Sunshine Table has created this Easy Brazilian Soul Food Dinner Party Guide just for you. It’s a brilliant idea! And I absolutely love Brazilian food! Seriously, for years I took all of my tourist friends to Sabor Tropical Brazilian restaurant in Astoria for some of these exact same menu items!
Brazilian cheese bread, please.
And look at this photo that’s included in the guide. Uh, is he on the menu?! heh heh And he’s all smiley at the very white blonde lady. It’s me, it’s me!! 😉 But what’s up with the other guy’s skort?! Gotta love stock photos!
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
It’s a step by step how-to guide for throwing a gluten-free Brazilian Soul Food party that makes it totally easy and hassle free. It won’t bust your budget either. The recipes are all super easy and tasty – even for glutenators and carnivores.
This guide is packed with do-ahead tips so you can achieve a beautiful presentation at home having done most of the work hours before. However style is nothing without taste, so Djanira made sure that all the recipes deliver sumptuous “flavours” without being complicated to prepare.
All you need to do is follow the steps given to you. She’s taken care of everything from what the room’s going to look like, and what music you’re going to play, to the food itself.
As the book contains loads of done-for-you ideas, you can take as much or as little as you like, so she’s gone into loads of detail. You’ll see there’s a shopping list, equipment needed, checklist for the night, and an explanation of what prep you can do the day before. All of this will help make it really easy, it’s there if you need it, but don’t feel obliged to use everything.

Starters: Pao de queijo (Brazilian cheese bread)
Main Course: Feijoada (bean stew)
Sides: Steamed Rice, Couve (greens), Farofa (topping)
Dessert: Brigadeiros (chocolate truffles)
NOTE: Before you freak out at the mention of “semolina” under the Manioc section in the guide, please remember that Djanira’s audience isn’t necessarily gluten-free, so these recipes are naturally gluten-free, but if someone couldn’t find manioc flour then she told them they could use semolina (wheat). You, my friend, must use the authentic and naturally gluten-free ingredients. In the United States manioc starch is usually called tapioca flour or tapioca starch. For the Farofa recipe you need actual manioc (cassava) flour that is grainy. Make sense?
Oh, and if you think one of your friends would like an easy answer to entertaining…please feel free to share this blog post with them. Thx!
