Food 1 : Kill me now, or feed me something Brazilian

Our apologies to everyone who listens to this lesson. First off, if you have eaten these foods, it is killing you to hear about them without being able to eat them. Second of all, if you haven’t eaten these foods, you just won’t relate to what the fuss is all about. No wonder Brazilians use the phrase matar as saudades “to kill your homesickness” to talk about the powerful feeling that comes over you when you miss foods from another culture. No doubt, this makes for an impressive Conversa Brasileira.
