Trancoso - Moda e Estilo



Voltei a por os pés na estrada, ou melhor, dentro do avião, para ir agora para Trancoso!!

 

Lá fui eu fazer mais uma mala para viajar. Como eu estava bem cansada de fazer mala milimetricamente pensada para ir para minha viagem para o verão europeu (Veja meu post sobre Ibiza), peguei uma mala confortável e coloquei tudo que eu queria. Óbvio que não usei tudo, mas eu não estava nem ligando. Queria espaço e opções, já que o tempo não estaria tão bom. 

Enfim....fui para Trancoso para um casamento (incluive é a segunda vez que vou para Trancoso em um casório! Amo! Podem continuar casando lá! Super indico! ;)

 

Vou mostrar para vocês o que eu usei, e dicas de como fazer sua mala para ir para esse lugar chic, cheio de charme e ostentação!

 

Ambientação:

Trancoso se resume ao Quadrado , que é a “praça central” onde tudo acontece. Os restaurantes, lojinhas e algumas festas estão lá. Ele é literalmente um quadrado, talvez um retângulo gigante com tudo ao red or, e um espaço no meio, que no Ano Novo fica lotado de gente (época POP de Trancoso ).  A igrejinha fofa, que é cartão postal de Trancoso fica no lado mais afastado do quadrado.

O Taipe, Café de la Music e Estrela D’agua ficam mais afastados e precisa pegar um táxi para chegar, pois estão do lado da praia.  Quem fica no quadrado tem facilidade à noite, mas de dia precisa pegar um táxi para ir na praia e vice versa. Todas as pousadas podem Pedir taxi para você (uma corrida fica em média R$ 20).

 

Estilo em Trancoso:

O quadrado é de paralelepipedo , então não adianta levar salto fino que você irá passar vergonha torcendo o pé. RasTeirinhas são bem vindas em qualquer lugar, mas se você não larga mão de um saltinho, aposte nos blocos, plataformas ou edges, nada muito alto.

O ambiente é chic e muito estiloso, então pode apostar em produções mais elaboradas, como tecidos fluidos, longos, coloridos, estampas, brincar com as proporções das roupas, transparências, chapéus , franjas, óculos mil , acessórios e tudo o que tem direito.  Misture roupas que você antes não misturaria. Como uma camisa com uma saia colorida, uma saia longa com blusinha larginha, um shorts com um caftan transparente longo, hot pants,  maiôs recortados, um óculos para cada dia, bikínis com colares e body chains e por aí vai!

Se você for para um Casamento, aposte em vestidos longos, bem coloridos e estampados! Cuidado para não comprar em lojas muito da moda porque correrá o risco de ter outra convidada com sua roupa! Já vi isso acontecer (4 duplas com roupa igual na mesma festa, e nesse que fui agora 1 dupla com mesmo vestido)!   :/

Ps: se vc alugar o vestido na Dress&Go, ou comprar na Arthur e  Sueli Calim, ou algo do tipo , poderá garantir que não terá ninguém com sua roupa, pois eles tem um banco de dados (mas o preço talvez não agrade).

Restaurantes:

Todos os que eu já fui voce pode ir arrumadinha , e bem estilosa, porque as pessoas também estarão.  Todo mundo olha todo mundo (ao contrário de Ibiza). Meio chato, mas é verdade.

- Capim Santo (jantar): lugar super gostoso. A comida é boa e o atendimento excelente, mas não peça o Curry Verde porque vc irá se decepcionar, caso goste muito dele. O bolinho de aipin é top. E a pimenta da casa é super apimentada. Eu que amo pimenta , amei.

- Jacaré (jantar): outro lugar fofo e delicia. Tudo é gostoso, somente a batata famosa de lá que não curti muito. Parecia que estava queimada.

- Gordo (jantar): Delicioso e se for de dia consegue ver a vista que é linda.

- Bahia Bonita (almoço): A muqueca é top! Mas demora muito para ficar pronta, se tiver muito movimento!

 

 

Baladinhas:

- Café de La Music: Uma delícia de lugar! Tem brisa o tempo todo porque fica ao lado da praia. Inclusive dá para entrar pela praia. O chão é metade cimento, metade areia e metade tábuas de madeira, então ,mais uma vez , melhor usar salto grosso.

- Taipe: Não conheço.

- Estrela D’agua: Super pé na areia. Vale apostar nos maiôs e bikínis estilosos que não daria para usar para tomar sol. Use-os com Caftans, cangas, saias longas, shorts jeans  e vestidoes. E você pode chegar de sandália, mas irá tirar logo se a festa for na praia.

Aeroporto:

- Pense que se vc for por porto Seguro terá que alugar uma Van, ou pegar um taxi ( R$ 200), para ir para Trancoso (quase 1h de estrada de terra com muito buracos se pegar a balsa),  por isso use roupas confortáveis e leves, até pq se estiver calor vc vai fritar pq tem muito taxi velhinho e sem ar condicionado! Eu usei o Sandro. Se quiserem liguem para ele! Telefone: 73 9805-6656 / 73 8154-2425 / 73 9122-5880 / sandroitapororoca@hotmail.com

Hotel:

- Bahia Bonita: Eu só fiquei no Bahia Bonita, e indico porque fica na praia e o café da manhã é uma delícia! O Cleriquot de lá vale super a pena, e as cadeiras de praia, bangalôs e camas são TOPs!

-  El Gordo: Amigos ficaram e gostaram. O problema são as escadas, pq fica em um morro.

- Pousada Jacarandá: Amigos ficaram e falaram que o atendimento é bom, quarto muito bom se pegar o bangalô, e diárias excelentes. O café da manhã bem gostoso.

- Pousada Jardim das Margaridas:  Amigos ficaram nela. Os donos são franceses, então você poderá se debater com alguns, VOILÁ! Quarto menor, mas super aconchegante. Café da manha delicinha também.

Top 10 places to enjoy a Caipirinha in Rio



 

1- Azul Marinho -  Arpoador Inn
 
 

Overlooking Praia do Arpoador (Arpoador beach), this restaurant is located in a  six-story hotel which is the only one in Ipanema or Copacabana that doesn't have a busy street between it and the beach. You'll catch superb sunsets from the beachside tables at this quiet little spot in Arpoador that serves high-quality seafood and pasta dishes for lunch and dinner and assembles a lavish breakfast buffet each morning. Across from the beach on the Arpoador Inn's ground floor, the restaurant has a giant window with panoramic views. Moqueca is the house specialty, made with shrimp, cod, lobster, crab, or octopus—or a mix of them all. It gets even better with the delicious Caipirinha of the house. The service at Azul Marinho is excellent and the seafood is ultrafresh, but an even better reason to come here is to sit at one of the outdoor tables next to the sand and enjoy early-evening appetizers, drinks, and a marvelous sunset.

Address: Av. Francisco Bhering s/n, Arpoador, Rio de Janeiro -

2- Bar e Restaurante Urca

 Urca, the tranquil neighborhood that is home to Sugar Loaf mountain, warrants a longer visit than many tourists permit for in their itineraries, and there are few better spots in the city to linger over a beer and a bite to eat than this wonderfully relaxed bar-restaurant. Attracting a mix of locals, famous faces and tourists, the simple hole in the wall spot stands out for its stunning harbor-side location - after making your order of your caipirinha at the bar, you can drink it propped up outside, taking in a view of the Christ statue as you watch fishing boats bob up and down on the calm waters. Forget any culinary pretensions and, indeed, calorie-counting, and enjoy local dishes such as fried polenta with shrimp, and towering stacks of fried potato or aipim (cassava).

 

Address: Rua Cândido Gaffrée 205, Urca, Rio de Janeiro

3- Aprazível 

Located high on a jungle-clad hillside in Santa Teresa, Aprazivel is worth a visit for the views alone. Wisely making the most of the sweeping vistas over downtown Rio, the owners have made al-fresco dining the order of the day, here, with grass-roofed gazebos sitting amid lush tropical gardens visited by toucans and monkeys. At night, the scene is lit by candles and flickering fairy lights which, when combined with the views and the delicious French-Brazilian dishes on the menu, makes this one of the best spots in Rio for a romantic meal. Chef Ana Castilho has combined Brazilian culinary influences with tricks of the trade learned during her training in France, and the result is a menu of light dishes that add some chic French touches to the wealth of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and seafood available locally. The father of the owner produces a cachaça callled Santa Cana, which inspired Aprazivel to produce its own's: São Pedro e São João. And how is the best way to enjoy these cachaças ? Caipirinhas, all delicious there!

 Adress: Rua Aprazível, 62 - Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro - RJ

4- Boteco Belmonte

This Rio chain is a great place for a relaxed meal and a drink after a hard day's sunbathing. On the menu are dependably good versions of traditional Brazilian dishes such as dried beef served with rice and spring greens, as well as pizzas and an extensive line of finger foods. For a light lunch you can have three or four empadas with different fillings—they're delicious little pies with a light, buttery pastry. Wash it all down with a Chopp Black(dark draft beer) or a Caipirinha or Caipivodka, considered one of the best in Rio. The line to get a table snakes out into the street on weekend evenings, but you'll have plenty of elbow room on weekday afternoons. 

Aderess: Flamengo - Praia do Flamengo, 300  / Copacabana - Rua Domingos Ferreira, 242 / Leblon: Rua Dias Ferreira, 521

 

5- Casa da Feijoada at Ipanema

 Feijoada and Caipirinha make a perfect match, a typical "must do" once in Brasil. In 1989 this charming monument to the national dish has been serving up one of the city's best feijoadas, as you would expect from somewhere called House of Feijoada. The much-cherished stew is of course the main attraction and served with more options than you'll find in most purveyors, with bull and pig and cow parts ready and waiting to be paired with the essential black beans. The stew for two with all its acoutrements (including rice, sausage, farofa, crackling and couve flor greens) will probably suffice for most foursomes and the Caipirinhas that come as part of the meal are a nice little boozy, fruity hit, all of which means that heading there on a weekend almost certainly means patience will be required before you find a table.

Adress: Rua Prudente de Moraes, 10

 

6- Rio Scenarium

 The hippest and most swankily decorated place in Rio. A hit with all demographics, from college kids to their great-great-granmas.The Rio Scenarium is one of the temples of Rio's nightlife, possibly even the emblem of the capital's festive spirit. The interior of this restaurant/concert hall is original and this adds to the festive, quirky vibe. It boasts numerous antiques which give the place a certain air of prestige and class. If you have only one night in Rio, is where you must go. You can not miss the opportunity to listen to the iconic sounds of samba as you sip your caipirinha at this magic place in the Wonderful City. 

Adress: Rua do Lavradio, 20 - Centro, Rio de Janeiro
 
 

7 - Quiosque do Português

It might have become one of the more fashionable places in Rio for a caipirinha, yet the name of this father-son joint – “Portuguese Kiosk” – suggests humility. Indeed, the pair got their start a decade ago in one of the numerous huts that line the city’s beaches.  A year ago, they left trendy Leblon Beach and relocated to an open-air restaurant on the city’s elegant lagoon, the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, where athletic rowers and families in swan pedal boats pass by. The new, more upscale space can accommodate 150 guests, who, along with caipirinhas, happily chow down on the delícia de camarão com catupiry, an appetizer of battered and fried shrimp with white cheese. Another top appetizer for pairing with the drinks is the queijo brie cremoso ao fogareiro, a slice of brie served over a flame to slowly melt it into the apricot jelly that surrounds it. But the star attractions here are, of course, the Alves pair’s bold reinventions of the national drink – traditionally made with sugarcane-based cachaça, lime, sugar and ice – which also raise the question of when a caipirinha stops being a caipirinha. In some of their concoctions, just one of the original caipirinha elements is substituted, but others shun every traditional ingredient and are made with entirely different liquor and fruits instead. Caju, the acidic fruit that grows attached to cashew nuts and looks like a skinny bell pepper, is a hard swallow for some – many foreigners find the dry aftertaste on their tongue rather odd, while Brazilians gulp down the juice – but it becomes more than palatable when mixed with lime and high-end Santo Grau cachaça, in Carlos’s favorite caipirinha on the menu. Seriguela, a pleasantly sweet and slightly earthy thumb-sized orange fruit from Brazil’s northeast, is a much-ordered caipirinha flavor when in season. Another house specialty is jabuticaba, a Brazilian fruit similar to a grape but sweeter, which is served with cucumber vodka. The latter also mixes refreshingly with lima da pérsia, a sweet citrus fruit that tastes a lot like a less-pungent orange, for a caipirinha so light you can get away with drinking it at brunch.

Address: Avenida Borges de Medeiros 1424, Lagoa

 

8 - Praça São Salvador on Sundays

 If you are a brazilian music fan you must dedicate part of your Sunday to go to Praça São Salvador, in Laranjeiras. From 11am to 1pm, there is a "roda de choro", that consist of people in circles singing and playing "chorinho", a brazilian popular music instrumental style from the beginning of the 19th century, in Rio. Despite of the name (choro = cry), the style often has a fast and happy rhythm played by different brazilian instruments like pandeiro, flute, guitar and cavaquinho. Most of the players are from the "Portable Music School". Its free and a very nice program for everyone... kids, teenagers, adults and grandpas. Ask for a beer in a bottle or a caipirinha do Luizinho and try to dance, sing and enjoy it! 

Adress: Praça São Salvador, Laranjeiras 

 

 9- Bar do Lado - Leblon

 Bar do Lado is a certain for a post-beach relaxation with straightforward nibbles and a decent selection of drinks and delicious appetizers. The purple interior looks better under the dim light of evening, while the addition of two clocks, neither of which actually work (intentionally) is either the kind of thing that will endear you to it or not. If the details are lost on you then all to the good, there is a whole ocean out there to gawp at whilst sucking back on a well-mixed caipirinha. 

Adress: Avenida Bartolomeu Mitre, 15 - Leblon, Rio de Janeiro

 

10 - Paxeco Bar

Paxeco Bar, at Jardim Botânico neighborhood, offers a refined atmosphere. It's an open air space , with a stunning  view for the Christ , and beautiful palm trees as background.  Still, it's possible to see from close the only imperial palm tree planted outside the botanical garden. The menu is full of original creations, and many special Caipirinhas.

Adress: R. Pacheco Leão, 724D, Botanical Garden – Rio de Janeiro, RJ (above the restaurant Cauliflower)

Pitu apresenta sua nova cachša nobre, a Vitoriosa



 

 

Para fechar as comemorações dos seus 75 anos de vivências, emoções e muita história, a Pitú encerra o ano de 2013 com o que há de melhor em seus barris, a Vitoriosa. O lançamento da cachaça extra premium é um presente da marca pernambucana a seus fieis bebedores e uma celebração ao seu momento mais nobre, o agora.
Elegante, sofisticada e eclética, a Vitoriosa é resultado de uma tradição que já está na quarta geração. De forma refinada, ela surge em edição limitada para dar aos consumidores o gostinho da reserva especial que as famílias Ferrer e Cândido Carneiro ofereciam a amigos ilustres e convidados que visitavam a Pitú. Ideal para ser consumida em grandes comemorações, reuniões com melhores amigos ou momentos solitários de reflexão sobre a vida, a bebida que era guardada em segredo passou a ser bastante apreciada por um grupo seleto, o que levou então a Pitú a cogitar a possibilidade de oferecê-la ao mercado. 
Com esse plano em mente, a produção da Vitoriosa teve início há mais de cinco anos para chegar aos consumidores no momento perfeito. 

Processo de produção e comercialização

A produção e o envelhecimento da Vitoriosa segue um processo longo e detalhado. Para chegar ao nível de qualidade da bebida, tudo se inicia com a rigorosa escolha das cachaças que vão compor o blend. Esse trabalho aguçado de mistura de cachaças é fundamental para que as reações químicas de oxigenação entre os componentes da madeira e da cachaça ocorram em condições ideais.
Em quantidade limitada, o primeiro lote de 9 mil garrafas francesas com tampas de cortiça portuguesa, chegam inicialmente aos estados do Nordeste. Com uma sofisticação que a Pitú ainda não havia oferecido ao mercado, a Vitoriosa está sendo considerada o produto conceito da marca pernambucana. “Em termos de cachaça, ela é totalmente diferenciada e vem para mostrar as várias maneiras de se produzir e consumir esse tipo de bebida”, comenta Alexandre Férrer, diretor Comercial e de Marketing. 
Armazenadas em barris de carvalho francês, de 180 a 200 litros, o envelhecimento da cachaça ocorre por no mínimo cinco anos para que haja finalização das reações. Após esse período, a bebida é transferida para barris de carvalho americano, onde ocorre o aprimoramento da qualidade sensorial do produto através do refinamento e da harmonização de aromas e cor.
Resultado do que a Pitú tem a oferecer de melhor ao mercado, a Vitoriosa será comercializada também em uma embalagem especial para colecionadores. Em tiragem de duas mil unidades, esse produto exclusivo estará disponível para venda nos melhores bares e restaurantes do Nordeste. A partir de 2014, a Vitoriosa segue gradativamente para ser comercializada em todo o Brasil e, inclusive, no exterior. Pedidos para os Estados Unidos já estão garantidos.
    
Características sensoriais e harmonização

    Como tempo e qualidade são a essência da Vitoriosa, o envelhecimento em barris de carvalho francês não é um mero detalhe. Por possuir excelente complexidade sensorial, esses barris transferem à bebida um sabor aveludado e aroma marcante, com notas de especiarias como coco queimado e baunilha. Ao ser transferida para descansar em barris de carvalho americano, o sabor fica ainda mais refinado e seu aroma final adquire toques de canela e ameixa, exalado junto ao perfume da madeira.
    Com 39% de vol., a Vitoriosa é uma delícia aos paladares mais exigentes que apreciam uma bebida de alta qualidade.  Por ser eclética, além de poder ser consumida pura, em temperatura ambiente ou on the rock, pode ser harmonizada com diferentes comidas. De forma suave e agradável, funciona bem como aperitivo, acompanhamento de prato principal ou sobremesa, como digestivo, e para uma deliciosa caipirinha.
