Everything you need to know about the restaurants in this web series.
Knowing Salvador through its rich and diversified gastronomy makes you understand much of our own country’s history. With the purpose of telling these and other stories, the web series “Desafio Cozinha Raiz” is on display, a project that mixes gastronomy, music and a lot of fun!
“Cozinha Raiz” fosters gastronomic challenges where renowned chefs from the Soteropolitan kitchen invite digital influencers with little or no skills in the kitchen to prepare dishes that are famous for being one of each chef’s signature. The web series is shown on YOUTUBE.COM/SALVADOR channel.
There is a perfect playlist joining the web series, which is called “Cozinha Raiz”, created at Spotify, in the profile Visit Salvador da Bahia. The idea is to turn sensations into songs. In this script, we tell a little of each restaurant in the series, so you will want to try each of these fabulous dishes.
In the first episode, Chef Beto Pimentel, from the restaurant Paraíso Tropical, and Marcio Vitor receive Gominho to cook Dandá de Camarão.
Paraíso Tropical Restaurant is known for its recipes that turn the fruits into main course, always thinking about the medicinal characteristics and nutritional properties. The program’s signature dish is Dandá de Camarão. The dish created by Beto includes, among other ingredients, VG shrimp, peanuts and grated ginger, as well as a delicious manioc cream, joining the flavors of green coconut milk and dry shrimp.
