Joan took me to the market to shop for the ingredients. Wonderful at explaining and demonstrating the way to pick the ingredients. Fountain of knowledge on Bahia, Brazil, history, culture et al. The journey to the fishing village is quite an adventure. You literraly walk under a freeway through a neighborhood and find yourself on the fringes of the under city where a whole fishing community lives. There I was introduced to my teacher and her family. And we proceeded to make the Moqueca fish stew. With fish just caught an hour earlier by her husband. Bahia Metisse provides you the recipe via email, and you get to dine on the family's deck overlooking the bay. This is truly the way to immerse yourself in local culture and cuisine. Highly recommended for the adventurous traveler cooks out there.

Our family was looking for a 6-day trip around Salvador. I would like to say that Nicolas da agencia Bahia Matisse clearly understood what we were looking for and built up a program perfect for us : visit of the city of Salvador, explaining about the history of this part of brasil, one day on the beach of Praia do Forte and Imbassai, a trek in the chapada diamantina (wonderful) and to finish up we visited Cachoeira and a manufacture of cigars. All was well organized and full of historic explanations and good restaurants.
It was a success !

Nicholas picked us up at the airport and delivered us to our boutique hotel; once settled he arranged a walking tour of the historic district of Salvador, including meeting some of the local artists, viewing their works, spent time with an expert on Emeralds--the area is known for its emerald mines--and enjoyed the street dancing in the Pelourinho. The next day Nicholas took the 2 of us on a tour of the sacred places of the Condumble and we learned much about the history of this African religion and how the slaves wove it into Christianity. We highly recommend hiring him and his boutique travel agency for these intimate tours.

We booked this tour by email and we were not disappointed by the day we spent with Joël, driving to Cachoeira, but with a visit to a market before, a cigar factory with an impromptu capoeira demonstration and the visit of the village itself. And what a very nice lunch at the fazenda.
