What you'll do

Brazilians say: everyone knows how to make brigadeiro. But not everyone knows how to make GREAT brigadeiro - and I'll give you all the gourmet secrets!
In São Paulo there are so many places in which you can get the ingredients, packaging but not everywhere you can get the proper ingredients to make the best brigadeiro you can afford and eat. I'll make sure you know all about the ingredients, what to buy and why the quality is so important on the final taste!
Other things to note
Brigadeiro is not diet nor lactose free, plus it will have flavors like chocolate, peanut and many more, in a home kitchen. Due to higiene restrictions you'll watch the cooking and will roll only your brigadeiros. My building is not acessible, you need to go up 7 steps to reach the entrance.

I left investment banking to pursue an MBA in Entrepreneurship and ended up starting my own business in the food industry! I founded Gisela Treats in Boston, specialized in the most popular Brazilian Truffle (Brigadeiro). I got appraisal from two world-class celebrities - Andrew Zimmern (Host of Bizarre Foods) and Gail Simmons (Top Chef Judge) - who said that my Brigadeiro is the best that they have ever had!

Where you'll be

We'll go to Zona Cerealista, one of the greatest places in São Paulo to buy great quality bulk ingredients. It is near Praça da Sé and 25 de março Street, amazing landmarks from São Paulo. Zona Cerealista is a very fun place to go! Then, we'll go to Bondinho, a specialty food store for delicacy chefs. The moment you arrive you'll smell chocolate in the air - but it is not any chocolate. It is the best source of chocolate for cooking in town!

Got to make some amazing flavors of Brigadeiro and visit the market with good raw ingredients available in bulk. Also visited a really nice place to get chocolate. Gisela showed how to make some gobsmacking Brigadeiro with dark coco powder. Can’t wait to try out some new combinations!

If you are in São Paulo and don’t try this experience, you will regret it! Gisela is just so friendly, knowledgeable, and loves sharing everything she knows with her guests! The market tour part of the experience was really interesting, and getting to make Brigadeiro with her was beyond amazing. You might as well come on an empty stomach, because you will be SO FULL with PLENTY of Brigadeiro to take home for your friends and family (or yourself). I love that Gisela is so open to new ideas and getting to know us. Already can’t wait to see her again some time in the future!

I really enjoyed the experience! I got hands on practice cooking brigadeiros which I now feel comfortable making on my own in the future. We were able to make multiple flavor bases and experiment with fillings and coverings. I was encouraged to eat all of my mistakes, so I left pleasantly stuffed and with a large number of brigadeiros to eat at home and to gift to friends. Gisele is a very friendly host. She is knowledgeable about the city and making confections. She was invested in my experience being positive. I highly recommend this experience to anyone interested in learning how to make brigadeiros, a delicious, uniquely Brazilian, treat.
