The traditional food of Brazil is a combination of many different cultural inheritances that have mixed and created a very interesting and unique cuisine. Originally, the food of Brazil was created by the native indigenous, who have given most of the main roots of the actual gastronomy of the country.

When the Portuguese colonised Brazil, their gastronomy mixed with the traditional indigenous dishes. Then, during the times of slavery, Africans brought their gastronomy to Brazil as well, adding it to the combination of indigenous and Portuguese cuisine. However, these gastronomies didn't completely merge, in most cases they coexisted.

Then, many other immigrants arrived as well: Lebanese, Germans, Italians, Japanese, Spanish, and many more, adding their dishes to the gastronomy of Brazil as well. This way, the actual gastronomy of Brazil is the result of a combination of cultures and dishes of many different origins.
