Brazil offers a lot more than Açai when it comes to superfoods. Chef Paulo Machado highlights power-packed ingredients this week at the Fullerton.

fullerton hotel brazilian chef paulo machadoChef Paulo Machado, a Brazilian native and advocate of indigenous ingredients, is here in Singapore for a week at The Fullerton Hotel sharing his passion for Brazilian food.

Chef Machado is a member of the slow food movement and has brought with him a suitcase full of native ingredients such as Tucupi (a yellow sauce extracted from wild manioc root in Brazil’s Amazon jungle), different kinds of Yuca flours, interesting Brazilian chillies (pimientos) typically marinated in vinegar and salt, and even interesting spices like Cumar — all in an effort to cook some interesting dishes here in Singapore and raise awareness of Brazilian ingredients and superfoods.

While ingredients like Açai are well known and even trendy, Brazil, and particularly the Amazon, is home to dozens of superfoods and power packed ingredients that many of us are quite unfamiliar with!

Yuca is a key ingredient in Brazil (it is the root of the cassava plant and pronounced yoo-ka) and many dishes are made with yuca- such as chibe soup – a chilled soup made with yuca flour hydrated in fresh water and herbs such as coriander, parsley and cumari spice. Cumari is cooling for the system (important in the hot Amazon climate) and rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.

Farofa is another dish made using shredded Yuca and garlic. It is served as an accompaniment to the popular Brazilian barbequed meats to cut the richness of the food. Caruru is an okra salad thought to be great for the digestive system and is made with a mixture of okra, onions, tomatoes and dende oil. Dende oil is essential to Brazilian cooking and is derived from the fruit of the palm tree. It is high in Omega-6, beneficial for the heart

There are a number of exciting events planned around Chef Paulo’s visit to The Fullerton Hotel between 9-15 April, including:

Sassy Mama about town with her mini-me #sosassy girl. A venture to Clarke Quay and taking in some sights. How cool and colourful is this building? It's the Old Hill Street Police Station and home to the Ministry of Communications and Information and the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth. A stunning 1930s colonial building located on River Valley Road. Worth a 📸 in front of!

Sassy Mama DIY: Raincloud Mobile⠀
Swipe left for a step by step guide with instructions below.⠀
⠀
Materials needed: Recycled Cereal Box, Egg Carton, Blue Acrylic Paint, Paintbrush, Cotton Balls, String, White Glue, Scissors, Pencil, Hole Puncher, Pen and White Paper (optional)⠀
⠀
Step 1: Cut cups off the egg cartons, paint the outsides of the cups blue. Once done, place it aside to allow them to dry.⠀
⠀
Step 2: Open and flatten your cereal box. Using the pen or pencil draw a cloud on one side, then cut out. You can paste a sheet of white paper on both sides to cover up the design of the cereal box (optional). Punch a hole in the centre at the top of the cloud and some holes at the bottom (the number of holes depends on how many raindrop strands you want to attach).⠀
⠀
Step 3: Glue cotton balls all over the cloud. Remember to leave the holes you have punched uncovered, and glue the cotton balls close together.⠀
⠀
Step 4: Once the egg carton cups are completely dry, use your pencil to poke holes in the top. Then string them together. String the cups from bottom up, leaving about 5-10 cm of additional string at the top. This will make it easier for you to attach the raindrop strands onto the cloud.⠀
⠀
Step 5: Tie your raindrop strands onto the bottom holes of your cloud, cut off any additional string. Attach string to the hole on top, this will allow you to hang your completed raincloud mobile wherever you wish! Taadaaa!
