Last night was a special dinner for family. They have always been extremely supportive of my culinary adventures and often enjoy listening about my dinner parties as well as drooling over pictures of food I’ve served. I figured it was about time to have a party made especially for them and their friends because they are what inspired me to love being in the kitchen after all. Since Mardi Gras recently passed, I thought it was only fitting to throw a dinner party inspired by this festive celebration. Aside from New Orleans and the annual Mardi Gras parties that take place here in the United States, other countries around the world are celebrating too. My dinner party last night highlighted the food and fun of Brazil with a Brazilian Carnival Dinner in celebration of Mardi Gras!
To make my dinner even more special, FoodBuzz is featuring our Brazilian Carnival Dinner for their February 24×24 Food Event. The FoodBuzz’s 24×24 Food Event showcases food blog posts from 24 Foodbuzz Featured Publisher bloggers of 24 unique meals occurring around the globe during a 24-hour period. I was thrilled to be featured this month!
