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.
