When we talk about exchange, we immediately think of learning a new language, meeting people of different nationalities, and exploring incredible places. However, immersing yourself in local cuisine is an essential part of this experience. After all, the food of a place tells a lot about its history, traditions, and lifestyle.

Gastronomy as a reflection of culture

As in Brazil, where our cuisine is the result of a mix of indigenous, African and European influences, each country in Europe has its own gastronomic identity. Then, get ready to embark on a journey of flavors during your exchange in the Old Continent.

Ireland and France: flavors that go beyond the traditional

  • In Ireland, the famous Irish Breakfast is a complete meal that includes bread, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, sausage, potatoes, tomatoes, toast, and beans. The Irish love potatoes and you'll find them in many typical dishes.
  • In France, on the other hand, gastronomy is a true art. Breads such as baguettes and croissants are omnipresent, often accompanied by delicious fruit jams. Ratatouille and macaron, an almond cookie, are other French delicacies you need to try.
  • Ao Learn a language abroad or study at a University abroad, you will have the opportunity to experience these cuisines up close and improve your taste buds.

Italy and England: classics that conquer the palate

It's impossible to talk about Italy without mentioning its passion for pasta and cheese. From Neapolitan pizzas to stuffed ravioli, Italian cuisine is a treat for the senses. And don't forget the gelato, the famous Italian ice cream that will cool you down on hot days.

In England, the most iconic dish is Fish and Chips, a combination of fried fish and french fries that conquered the world. Another British ritual is the five o'clock tea, when people pause to enjoy a cup of tea accompanied by biscuits.

Spain and Switzerland: an explosion of flavors

1. Spanish paella, made with rice and seafood, is a true feast of flavors. In the tapas, you'll find snacks like raw ham, potatoes, and olives, perfect for sharing with friends.

2. In Switzerland, fondue and raclette are the stars during the cold months. Imagine dipping breads and vegetables in melted cheese! And of course, we must not forget the famous Swiss chocolate, considered one of the best in the world.

3. These are just a few examples of the gastronomic diversity that you will encounter during your exchange in Europe. Each country has delicious surprises in store that will be part of your unique experience.
