If I can pull it off, I will be tagging along with my husband on a week-long trip to Sao Paulo in a couple of days. I've never been to South America, and this is a sudden and unexpected opportunity, so I haven't had time to do any research. (After a cursory glance at Googlemaps, Chowhound is my next reference--so you know my priorities.) I've read several recent threads, and made notes of places to eat, but I really would love to learn how to cook a few local specialties as well, particularly a good feijoada. Are there any classes for Anglophones?
Also, as I will be alone most of the time, can anyone recommend a guide, or a tour agency, preferably one that can emphasize the food culture of Brazil?
