Description of Events
The Beans - BACCF Annual Feijoada
The "Feijoada" is one of the most important annual events organized by the Chamber, where we welcome in the new Board of Directors for the upcoming year and thank our members for their continued support. An informal luncheon held on the last Saturday of January, BACCF members and friends gather together to celebrate. “Feijoada” is considered by some as Brazil’s national dish - a stew of beans with a variety of beef and pork cuts. It is typically served with rice and accompanied by chopped fried collard greens, lightly roasted coarse cassava flour, and peeled and sliced oranges. “Caipirinhas” and other typical beverages make it a perfect occasion to treat employees, friends and clients alike.
