Celebrate the Rio 2016 Games with the delicious flavours of Brazil. With all eyes on Brazil this summer, what better way to celebrate the Olympic Games than to conjure up the flavours of the host country?
Create your own backyard Brazilian barbecue with traditional meat skewers that pack a bold flavour punch.
“Skewers are an easy food to serve friends and family during a Rio-themed viewing party,” says top American chef Kevan Vetter. “A Brazilian marinade pairs great with steak so grill up both, and let guests choose their own meat and complementary sauce. My favourite is a red chimichurri, which gets fiery flavour from smoked paprika, crushed red pepper and jalapeno.”

Kitchen Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak them thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with meat. This prevents them from burning when on the grill.
