Our Story, so far:

The cooking classes for foreigners project started in 2009 after getting repeated requests for lessons from both international customers as well as locals.

Once the classes started, they took off. Simone teaches classes daily, educating, impressing and entertaining hundreds of students a month.

About Simone Almeida:

Simone opened her Fogo Carioca restaurant in 2007, drawing atention from food critics and Cariocas, Rio's locals. Her angle: cachaça flambèed dishes, with unique and exotic ingredients, so clients could have a true exploration in new flavors.

The cachaça, Brazil's rum, adds a twang to traditional flambè, while touches of "pequi", a central Brazilian fruit, enriches even the blandest of ingredients. These, and a few other secret touches, are what helped Simone gain recognition as a chef in Rio.
