The Selection Process
What We Learned
- Even though the Brigadeiro is very easy to do, make sure that you chill it in the fridge for a little bit before you shape it, or your hands will be extremely sticky.
- Brazilian food has quite a few bay leaves. Like way more than you would think.
- We added the rice too early without realizing how long it would take to fry the coxinhas. The rice became very plump and absorbed a lot of the broth.
- It is easier to stretch the dough from the Coxinhas out while it is in your palm so there is more dough to work with.
