Minas Gerais has one of the best Brazilian cuisines. The dishes are not sophisticated in appearance, but are very tasty. Originated from the old farms, they are best prepared in a wood stove, which cooks the food slowly and makes the best black beans possible. Yes, black beans and pork are in almost all recipes from Minas. Chicken too is very much used. Mala e Cuia is special because it has a wood stove and prepares great mineira cuisine in Rio. You will find chicken and okra, tutu à mineira, green chard, and all the wonderful, very sweet, deserts from Minas, always accompanied by a slice of cheese. One dish serves two. Oh, beware at night, if you don't like Brazilian country music - live concerts!
