I'm a flight attendant and Home Chef and I want to open my house and and show you the Brazilian hospitality. I'm a regional taste lover. I usually use local ingredients in my recipes. I gradueted in gastronomy at Unisuam university in Rio. Besides that, I am one the finalists at the Brazilian cooking reality show "Cozinheiros em Ação" at GNT Brazilian channel. I love to receive friends in my home and prepare my dishes, with my "first class" touch. Traveling around the world opened my curiosity about flavors. I always bring home new spices and ingredients and create some delicious courses.... My friends are frequently invited to join me in my kitchen to try my fusion experiences!!!! They never complain!!! Let me show you the "carioca" way of making a feast.
What to expect at Alessandro's place
Our EatWith experience with Chef Alessandro was MAGICAL! A couple of weeks prior to the event, he was very communicative and attentive. He prepared a delectable and customized menu for our group of 8. It was also one of our friends' birthday and Alessandro certainly made the night extra special and allowed us to experience a true Brazilian birthday celebration. We started out this gorgeous night by toasting at the beautiful Mureta de Urca sidewalk. We then proceeded to his apartment just half a block away and he immediately made us feel at home. His apartment is tastefully decorated with art pieces from various places around the world - the lighting created the perfect atmosphere! Food plating and presentation were outstanding and each course was out-of-this-world delicious! Overeall, the location, food, and experience were absolutely incredible. 5+ stars!!!
This was my second EatWith experience, and it was mind-blowing. Alessandro is an excellent chef! Alessandro set the bar really high for the rest of our trip, introducing us to the local Brazilian food. We also loved hearing about his 'food / chef' journey. Alessandro was brave to host our toddler, who enjoyed his food as well. I am also thankful that Alessandro kept my husband's dietary restrictions in mind (he is a vegetarian). My husband's food looked exactly the same as the rest of us, and tasted yummy too. Alessandro's home is beautiful; very tastefully done, as is his food. Thank you for a wonderful hospitality, Alessandro. Until next time!
