Rio Fusion: French & Brazilian (#103H) Duration: 27:30 STEREO TVG

They have lunch at his CT Boucherie restaurant, a Brazilian steakhouse or "churrascaria" considered to have some of the best meat in Rio. Claude takes Hubert to meet his friend Katia Barbosa for some of the best Brazilian home cooking in Rio. At her famous Aconchego Carioca restaurant, Chef Keller is dazzled by her signature dishes, including the Bolinhos Feijoada and Shrimp in Coconut. His next food stop is to TT Burger, reputed to have the best burger in Rio. While it looks American on the surface, the burger is Brazilian from the pickle to the bun. The final destination is to what may be the most romantic and beautiful restaurant in Rio: Aprazivel.
