In Brazil there are “flour houses” and farinheiros that produce a vast range of flours, which vary by root used and processing technique.

Manioca, one of the main crops of indigenous peoples, is used to make all sorts of dishes. It can be slow-cooked, toasted or fried, and can accompany any type of food. Its flour is an ingredient in breads, couscous, crisp crêpes, biscuits and more besides.


  • Zenilda Cardos, a cook with a degree in Gastronomy and specializing in Ecogastronomy; she studies the history of food in Brazil. She organizes workshops and classes on the integral use of food for children and adults, with the goal of reducing or combating food waste. She is an activist in the Slow Food movement and participates in Slow Food Brazil’s education working groups.
  • Maria do Socorro Almeida, chef, lawyer, food activist, public policy developer, cultural manager and educator.
