There is not an exact single “national Brazilian cuisine”, as it varies greatly by region, reflecting the country’s mix of native and immigrant populations, and its continental size as well (it’s the 5th largest country in the world). Through the years Brazilian cuisine has been influenced by African and European (especially Portuguese) settlers. This diversity has created a national cuisine that is best known for embracing the preservation of regional differences.

The cuisine of Bahia has been influenced by native Brazilians as well as by African slaves that were brought to the region to work the many sugarcane plantations dating back to the 1500s. African traditions became imbedded in the culture and the food. Some of the more popular ingredients in this northeastern region of Brazil include beans, corn, fish, legumes, manioc (a native tuberous root) and potatoes.
