What is the best way to test your knowledge in the kitchen? Cooking, of course. For this reason, the training course for kitchen assistants at Gastronomia Periférica, a social business that offers free cooking classes to students from the outskirts of São Paulo (Max Jaques, the researcher chef at Instituto Brasil a Gosto has been a teacher in this course), decided to transform the graduation project of the first semester of this year in a real life experience: opening a pop-up restaurant during this weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday (29th and 30th June), the project will open a restaurant in its Base Cozinha Compartilhada space to serve some very Brazilian meals:  for the first lunch, feijoada, in the evening a six-course tasting menu, taken from the book “Por que Criei a Gastronomia Periférica”, written by the chef Edson Leite, and on Sunday, oxtail with watercress and a dessert.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Check the menu for Saturday evening:


Bean broth with bacon farofa

Manioc broth with crispy onion

Arugula and mushroom salad


Main course

Chicken curry

Ham with taioba



Ricotta cheese and passionfruit pie

Three chocolate
The cooks have been culinary students of Gastronomia Periférica for six months. After this stage, they start to dedicate themselves to the cook training course, opening up opportunity in the job market.
Lunch will cost R$ 50 and dinner will cost R$ 150 per person. To participate, just send an email to reserving your place!
