Brazilian Supperclub

Here are the reviews from the Brazilian SupperClub I co-hosted with Dhruv Baker, BBC Masterchef winner 2010 at Luiz, The London Foodie house in June 2014.  It was a PR event for Tilda, limited Brazilian rice for the worldcup 2014. Only 10 bloggers were invited to this event.
Menu was put together by me and some shopping by Dhruv. It was a team effort between Dhruv and I on the cooking at his catering kitchen in South London.
my side was the canapes and desserts and Dhruv was the starter and mains
– picanha was  barbecued to perfection! 

Luiz’s venue so beautiful and
welcoming. read on for great pictures and details:
