My mate Santos is the head potwasher at my restaurant, Fifteen. He’s a Brazilian boy who’s a great cook, and whose mother makes the best Feijoada in Brazil! It’s a traditional Brazilian stew made with pork and black beans. The slaves in colonial Brazil created the Feijoada when they started cooking the pork meats that farmland owners discarded, such as ear, tails and feet, in a big pot with the black beans.
