With the Brazilian Grand Prix final only days away and the release of the much raved about film Senna (Brazilian F1 demigod), I thought it fitting to bring you a Brazilian recipe to nibble on this Sunday.

If F1 isn’t your thing, tuck in over Senna (the film…). The archive footage of the late, great Ayrton Senna is astounding. And whether you’re into fast cars or not, it’s fascinating viewing. Either way, I guarantee you’ll fall in love with at least one Brazilian specimen.
As luck would have it, I was fortunate enough to spend 3 days at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. ‘It’s not what you know…’ as they say. Here are some of the best bits to rev you up for the final. Sorry.

There’s a reason we watch F1 on TV, this took four shots!
Poolside buddy F1 legend Sir Jackie Stewart, who notched up a record breaking 27 Grand Prix wins by 1973. And Mascarpone tart with espresso parfait. Paddock life sucks. But I’ll take a hit for the team.
So, on recovering from the Post Paddock Blues, I’ve been struck by Post Party Flu. Cristal has been entirely replaced with honey, lemon and copious amounts of ginger. Just desserts?
