Brazilian Delicacies is a dream unfolding as we speak. As Brazilians, Andrea and I have tried getting some of our own food here on the Island to no avail! Basically, there is no Brazilian culinary tradition on Vancouver Island at all. So, we've decided to put an end to that and created Brazilian Delicacies Inc. to provide healthy, convenient and delicious Brazilian food to the Island.

Who told you gluten-free can’t be tasty, healthy and convenient?
We live in a world where there are endless choices of cheap and convenient food available. However, this convenience and cheap options come with a big caveat – they are simply not good for your health! It is very difficult for anyone these days to eat healthy who doesn’t wanna make his or her own food from scratch. So, we are here to help the food conscious people who have decided to eat healthy but don't have the time to cook everything from scratch.
We are gluten free because there are plenty authentic Brazilian naturally gluten-free. Gluten-Free is often associated with lousy tasting food. However, Brazilian Delicacies would like to prove you wrong :) We use the finest ingredients!!! We stick with organics as much as possible, don't put preservatives, colorings and don’t use any GMO ingredients.
Enjoy and let us know how we can improve to serve you better!
Our Brazilian food is prepared with real ingredients, rapidly frozen or refrigerated, labelled with cooking or heating instructions and are ready to place in your freezer or fridge when you receive them. This way you can order for a week or even a month, at your convenience.
Save time, money, and enjoy the convenience of eating nutritious Brazilian food in the comfort of your own home.
