Bahia’s cuisine

Bahia is a feast of colors and flavors. The ancient indigenous recipes and the spicy African dishes were added to the exquisite Portuguese royal cuisine.

The “dendê” that came from Africa gives its special flavor to the oil used to prepare Bahia’s typical dishes, such as moquecas, mariscadas, caruru, acarajé and abará.

The countryside has different mixtures and flavors. Jerk beef, cakes and a variety of sweets prepared with fruits are some of the delicious dishes served at the bountiful countryside’s table.
