Meet Ida at her home and then hop in her car for the 30-minute drive to a nearby coastal nature preserve where you will learn about local produce. On this special piece of land, farmers grow high-quality organic fruits and vegetables using sustainable farming methods. They grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and you might buy some for your meal. Ida will bring some snacks for you to enjoy as you explore this beautiful place and walk the forest trails. Alternatively, on Sundays you also could take a tour of local markets. After the tour, you will join your host Ida in her large, open kitchen where she will teach you to make her version of seasonal Brazilian food. During your cooking experience you will learn to make 2-3 dishes. If the weather is good, you might cook on her brick churrasqueira (brick oven) in the backyard, situated next to the ocean!
