Meet Raquel

Raquel is 28 years old. She was born in Brazil and has dual nationality. Because her father, Abel, is a dual Brazilian-Portuguese national Raquel also is Brazilian-Portuguese. She studied history and communications at PUC here in Rio. She is now living and studying film making in Barcelona, Spain.

In this photo we are about to eat Balcalhau that was prepared by Abel. He learned this delicious recipe from his mother. Raquel loves her father's cooking.

Balcalhau Maria

1/2 kilo of prepared dried balcalhau (soaked for 24 hours) separate the fish from the bones or place large pieces with bones in a heavy bottomed pan with the following:

2 green bell peppers cut into large pieces

2 large onions cut into large pieces

3 large tomatoes cut into large pieces

4 large potatoes cut into large pieces

1/2 cup of olive oil

Bake in a 350degree oven until everything is tender.
