Brigadeiros boxes (l.), “Açaí na tigrela” (r.) at Brigadeiros d’Alis

Pinks, greens, whites: behind the counter of this new tea room on rue des Gravilliers, in the Marais, the brigadeiros, lined up in a row, immediately catch the eye. Brigadeiros (brigadiers, in Portuguese) are popular treats in Brazil but little known in France. A lack of notoriety which Brigadeiro d'Alis intends to remedy.

Recipe ? Brigadiers, somewhat comparable to truffles, are made of condensed milk, cocoa and coated with coconut, almond flakes, pistachio, cocoa bean or praline. Crunchy, melting, sweet and a bit regressive. A great classic for family events, they are also enjoyed on Brazilian beaches where street vendors sell them without you needing to move from your deckchair.

It was by making them for colleagues that Laeticia, Franco-Brazilian co-creator of the store, introduced them to Vuthean. Seduced by these pretty little spheres, the latter decides to order some for his son. Faced with the success of these preparations, both decided to quit their jobs to set up an online business and, more recently, a store.

The bohemian decoration recalls the atmosphere of the stores in Ipanema, the trendy district of Rio de Janeiro. There we meet Brazilians who have saudade (nostalgia) for the country and Parisians curious to know what the Brazilian Proust madeleine looks like.

During this tropical getaway in the heart of Paris, we taste other flavors “made in Brazil”, such as the essential and classic pao de queijo (cheese roll in the shape of a gougere), pressed fruit juices minute carioca style or café zinho (a small coffee), or even a coffeedeiro (with condensed milk) accompanied by soft banana bread. We also do ourselves some good with a competitive Acai Bowl, made with acai, this little hypervitamin and antioxidant berry from the Amazon. Brigadeiro d’Alis, it’s tudo bom!
