Popular ingredients in Brazil include rice, black beans, pork, mandioc, palm oil, salted codfish, and coconut. Brazilian dishes are heavily influenced by the native indian, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Middle Eastern, Asian, and African cooking.
   The national dish in Brazil is Feijoada. This hearty meal is made with black beans, pork and other pig parts, toasted mandioc(cassava flour). Every person has their own special version so it is quite hard to find an exact recipe however the basic ingredients are always included.
