#USfoodEXPERIENCE: Six Regions – Lives

The Brazilian gastronomy magazine Prazeres da Mesa, in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), organized several lives on social networks about gastronomy in the United States in a project called #USfoodEXPERIENCE: Six Regions. The initiative is part of the #USfoodEXPERIENCE campaign, promoting United States cuisine and its excellent products. The lives have been conducted by prominent Brazilian chefs and broadcast on Prazeres da Mesa‘s Instagram. The Brazilian chefs executed recipes from the six regions of the United States (Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Pacific, West, and Midwest) with American products found in Brazil. A seventh live took place on July 3rd, a day before Independence Day. In this live the recipe was a traditional, all-American recipe showcasing American beef and more. In addition, 30 social media influencers received a USDA kit with American products. The work with influencers aimed to increase awareness among consumers about American gastronomy and products found in Brazil. This project counted with ten sponsors, including Cooperators and local importers, showcasing seventeen American products.
