South America: feijoada @ Sinhá

March 2014 marks our third anniversary. This anniversary month we will be visiting South America, beginning with a Brazilian BYOB brunch.

From the restaurant's website:

"Sinhá (Seen-yah'), which means 'lady of the house', offers you the only opportunity in Chicago to have Brazilian food catered for any occasion. The food preparation is totally authentic and so is the chef. Born, raised, and educated in Brazil, Jorgina Pereira began small-scale catering 12 years ago for friends and acquaintances. For her, cooking is a source of personal enjoyment and an outlet for artistic expression. Since then, Sinhá has earned the respect of big-name establishments such as Varig Brazilian Airlines who have frequently requested Sinhá's contribution.

"Brazilian culture is a product of many international influences, especially African and Portuguese, which are evident in its cuisine. This becomes apparent in the tantalizing preparation of poultry, seafood, vegetarian, pork and beef dishes. Traditionally, Brazilian food uses many spices, but the dishes are not naturally hot. Each dish can be made mild or spicy, and hot sauces or dressings are always served on the side. These delectable gourmet dishes are always prepared from the freshest ingredients and presented in the most elegant manner."

    Too bad more of you couldn't make it. We ended up being upstairs in the living room by ourselves, so it was like having our own private party.

      The proprietor calls it brunch. Who am I to argue?
