The Gastronomic Festival
in the creative city of gastronomy and
This edition has a very special theme for all of us: ROOTS.
In Portuguese, as well as in English and Spanish, this word can also be understood as "origin".
That said, our theme is not only our roots in the literal sense of the word (cassava, sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, finger taioba ... among others), it can also explore the basis of our identity, the source of our passion for gastronomy, something that reminds you of your references or that sharpens our affective memory, YOUR ROOTS.
Our ROOTS, are present in our day to day, is our culture, and is all our reference !!!!!!
On the other sight, we also have the basis of our cuisine, as shown by archeology, modern indigenous groups were formed in Brazil around 500 years ago, near Santarém, in Pará.
From there they migrated and occupied the entire country.
An arm, formed by the Tupinambás, that crossed the coast and arrived around the year 800 where today is Rio de Janeiro. They cultivated cassava. Another branch, made up of the Guarani, came to the edge of the Andes and arrived in São Paulo around the year 1000.
These planted corn.
Thus two completely different cuisines were formed, and thus Brazil was formed, based on these two starches.
We cannot forget that corn flour is the food that sustains the conquest of the Brazilian backlands by the Portuguese. In the flags, the indigenous people went ahead to plant the corn, which served as food for the pioneers.
Until the 19th century there was a popular rural cuisine based on corn, manioc, beans, pumpkin and dried meat, this was the basis of Brazilian cuisine, with the exception of the Amazon region, whose base was fish and manioc.
It is important to stress that we are talking about popular cuisine, the ingredients and our historical references, and this is the path that will influence the Paraty Gastronomic Festival 2020.
The Polo Gastronômico de Paraty is a non-profit association established in 2010.
It is formed by companies and enterprises in the gastronomy, leisure, bars and similar sectors with the objective of promoting the culture and gastronomic identity of Paraty, providing unique experiences, valuing social, economic and environmental sustainability.
Its members are a reference in quality cuisine and service excellence.
How was FGP 2019
Each year, a theme is chosen as the guiding thread in all the Festival's actions.
In 2019, the PANCS (Non-Conventional Food Plants), and the rescue of traditional culinary techniques, are highlighted, curated by Jorge Ferreira.
Son of farmers, botanist, naturalist and specialist in the recognition of plants and mushrooms from the Atlantic Forest, Jorge Ferreira was raised in Paraty, and has always worked prioritizing sustainability and a harmonious relationship with nature.
With strong experience in planning, implantation and agroforestry management, Jorge has been studying practical botany, taxonomy, research of native plants, fruit and unconventional food plants with a focus on gastronomy for more than 10 years.
A arqueologia mostra que os grupos indígenas modernos se formaram no Brasil em torno de 500 anos atrás, perto de Santarém, no Pará.
Dali eles migraram e ocuparam o país todo.
Um braço, formado pelos Tupinambás, que atravessou o litoral e chegou por volta do ano 800 onde hoje é o Rio de Janeiro. Eles cultivavam a mandioca.
Outro braço, composto pelos Guaranis, veio beirando a Cordilheira dos Andes e chegou a São Paulo por volta do ano 1000. Esses plantavam o milho. Assim se formaram duas culinárias completamente distintas, e assim o Brasil se forma, baseado nesses dois amidos.
A antiga cozinha mineira, paulista, do Centro-Oeste, era toda baseada no milho dos Guaranis.
Não podemos esquecer que a farinha de milho é o alimento que sustenta a conquista do sertão brasileiro pelos portugueses.
Nas bandeiras, os indígenas iam na frente para plantar o milho, que servia de alimento para os bandeirantes.
Até o século 19 havia uma culinária popular rural baseada no milho, na mandioca, no feijão, na abóbora e na carne seca, essa era a base da culinária brasileira, com exceção da região amazônica, cuja base era o peixe e a mandioca.
É importante frisar que estamos falando da culinária popular, e esse foi o caminho, que influenciou o Festival Gastronômico de Paraty 2020.
