The name Tempero Baiano literally means “seasoning from Bahia,” because it originated in Brazil’s northeastern state of Bahia. This versatile spice is used in most of the Brazilian meals and chefs make sure that no two tempero mixtures are the same. Because of this there are many variations of the blend, with each cook and each family mixing their own version. Resulting in a variety of flavors offered in Tempero Baiano.

The Brazilian cuisine is both rich and diverse. It is heavily influenced by the Portugese, Africans and Native Indians. It’s hard to compare the Brazilian cuisine with other South American countries because it has a strong identity of its own setting it apart. A lot of dishes use ingredients and flavors only native to the regions they are cooked in.


Use Tempero Baiano to season bean soups and stews like chilis or sprinkle some on your roasted potatoes. You can also add it to fish and seafood. And let us not forget you can rub in chicken with the mixture before roasting. Don’t forget to add some olive oil for the rubbing.
