It's a daylong event with two workshops and a dinner with performances.
Start the morning off with herbalist Steve Morris and his son Aaron as they share their experience collecting medicinal plants with healers in the Amazon rainforest. They'll show you have to make healing salves with Amazonian botanicals. The workshop is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Feb. 16 and costs $35. Seating is limited.
Then, take a hands-on cooking class with chefs Ana Paula Mendonca and Dora Oliveira. Learn to make Brazilian feijoada, empadinhas, churrasco, pao de queijo and other foods from 2 to 5 p.m. The cost is $35 and includes a Brazilian cookbook with recipes from the instructors.
Later that night, sample a feast of Brazilian dishes like feijoada, caruru and balhoada, caipirinha cocktails and coffee while you watch a performance of music, dance and Capoeira martial arts.
Brazilian artist Eduardo Mendonca and members of Show Brazil! will perform the regional traditions of Carnival, bossa-nova and Brazilian popular music. Tickets are $75 and seating is limited.
The center is at 5023 Langley Road.
