Sertão Food Safari

Summary

Itinerary

Experience a 5 day journey around Sertão and learn about the unique culture and heritage through the cuisine.

Food Safari Sertão takes place in the Paraiba State, within the northeast region of Brazil.

Its capital called Joao Pessoa is located by the coast, but this Food Safari expedition takes travellers into the countryside, the region known as Sertão.

This is a 5 day journey with accommodation in two different farming  hotels. The farms’ economy is related to goats and sheep, as well as sugar cane for Cachaça distilleries.

Besides the beautiful landscapes of the Sertão, the main attraction is the local culture & history, which reflects the gastronomic heritage.

This is a poor region in terms of economy but admirably rich on folklore and religious manifestations.

People from Sertão have adapted their life to the very dry climate and developed cooking techniques to have the best use of the ingredients.
