Description:
   The traditional cuisine of Espirito Santo's State is closely related to its place, history, climate and economy. Espirito Santo is a small Brazilian state, located in the east portion of the southeast region of the contry. Its coast has 250 miles of beautiful Atlantic Ocean's beaches and rich forests. The weather is wet and tropical. The people are friendly and kind, they are known as "CAPIXABAS". Vitoria, the State’s capital, is an island surrounded by beaches and mangrove swamps.
    Fishing is a very important economic activity and the capixaba cuisine is strongly influenced by it and by the Indian and African culture. The seafood dishes prepared with fish, shrimp, lobster, octopus, oysters and crab are famous nationwide.
    The most famous dish of Espirito Santo’s State is the “moqueca Capixaba”. Symbol of its regional cuisine and appreciated everywhere, the moqueca is known for its unique way of cooking and serving. The name “moqueca” designates exactly this way of preparation wich is using a clay pot to cook the seafood and vegetables with no addition of water. The ingredients include the fish(or other seafood), onions, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, “urucum” and “malagueta” pepper. The moqueca is served on the same clay pot it was cooked, with the sides of white rice and “pirao” a thick broth made from the moqueca and yucca flour.
