Review: Rio – A Taste of Brazil


I love to review sauces from different places in the world. Rio – A Taste Of Brazil sounded exotic and interesting and I signed up quickly to review them.


Brazilian cuisine has a strong Portugese -African-Indian influence and the result is one that is quite amazing. As exotic as it sounds, it tastes just as good.

I received 3 sauces to review –



Amendoim – Perfect for chicken, it contains coconut milk. Lime, ginger and peanuts. This sauce had a creamy, nutty flavour that we all enjoyed. We added vegetables to the sauce and the great thing about it was that it was not spicy so the children could enjoy it too.


Bife de Panela – with a hint of cumin and vinegar, it was suggested to be used with pork or beef. We used it with pork and it was delicious. It had a nice gravy and we had it with bread. It was delicious and the children enjoyed dipping their bread in the gravy.The slightly tangy taste of vinegar added to the flavour.


The last one was the Moqueca sauce which contained coconut milk again. It was suggested to be used with fish but could also be used with chicken so I used chicken breasts and also used vegetables added to it. It had a hint of lime and coriander.

I think all three sauces were delicious but I liked the first on the best – Amendoim. It had a sublte aromatic flavour that was really nice and everyone enjoyed it.

The ease of using a sauce when you have children in the house is something that is so welcome. You have a meal ready in minutes and I have to say that these sauces were quite delectable.

I was send these 3 sauces for an honest review.
