About Simone Almeida:
Simone opened her Fogo Carioca restaurant in 2008, 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.
