Over the last year, I’ve been lucky to be able to travel as a part of work and not-work. Wherever I’ve travelled, the first thing that I’ve cared about is this: food.
I wanted to share some of my food favourites from my travels in the last year, starting with this dessert that I had in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
This is a dessert of layers, almost like a sundae, and is probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever eaten (I’m not kidding) but also one of the most delicious desserts (still not kidding). The bottom layers consist of vanilla ice cream, with layers of ‘farofa’ (toasted cassava or cornflour mixture that is added in both savoury and sweet dishes in Brazil, and something I wish was more of a thing in the UK). On top, one half is a sort of thick, sweet cream, and the other a dark, almost bittersweet chocolate. So pretty!
What is this dessert called, you say I wish I knew too. I was at a restaurant with my Brazilian friends when they insisted I try this dessert, and they said the name so fast I didn’t catch it and felt too stupid to ask them to repeat it (Chocolate Mour, is what I thought I heard, with ‘chocolate pronounced ‘chocolat’, as in French. But I can’t seem to find it anywhere online!). So if I have any Brazilian/ South American readers who recognise this, please let me know! I seriously loved it or (probably incorrect Portuguese incoming): eu amo isso! .
