Brazilian food reflects a cultural mosaic. It is an exuberant, colourful mix of Portuguese, African and native foods, including some from the Amazon. The cultural mosaic underscores the patterns of European and African migration that has formed the country’s ethnic stock. 
The native Indians developed ways of preserving meats by smoking and drying them; they also cooked corn porridge, cassava meal and sweet potatoes, and discovered delicious ingredients such as hearts of palm. The influence of the Portuguese, the first settlers is seen in the widespread use of codfish and sauces combining white wine, tomatoes and garlic. Equally pervasive is the culture of black slaves from Africa who along with the Portuguese settlers, settled in Bahia in the north-east, a province still renowned for its cuisine. They brought a range of influences and ingredients, including the Portuguese salted cod, onions and garlic, as well as a love of baking and desserts, especially egg custards; while the Africans brought dende (palm oil), coconut, plantains and okra.
The national dish, feijoada, is believed to have been created by African slaves using dried beans, kale and cassava, along with what were considered off-cuts of pork and air-dried beef.
The southern part of Brazil was settled later with coffee plantations, which brought western European and Arab immigrants with the skills for cheese making and preserving meat. They contributed to a diverse cuisine centred around Minas Gerais region. The Brazilian barbecue churrasco originated in the south of Brazil with the gauchos, or cowboys, who prized a cut of meat from the top of the beef rump called picanha. It is rolled in rock salt and sometimes garlic, and cooked rotisserie-style over charcoal on long skewers.
Brazilians love their savoury snacks (salgadinhos), which they eat along with strong, black coffee or the caipirinha cocktails that are considered Brazil's national drink (made with cachaça sugar, cane rum, sugar and lime juice). On most street corners you can also find pao de queijo, bite-sized cheese breads. At the end of a meal, sweets are very popular and are very sweet, some are flavoured with fruits like coconut, pineapple, and include quindim - a custard made with many eggs and coconut
