Rio 40º Degrees
The history behind Rio 40 degrees is Alice's love story. She wasn’t used to cooking, but, when she met her husband, she decided to cook him some Brazilian dishes. Obviously, he fell in love with her food.
She improved her cooking skills throughout time and found her new passion, which turned out as her new profession. The business started with Alice selling “Coxinhas” (Brazilian chicken croquettes) and “Feijoada” at an English school in Perth City. After a huge success, she came up with the idea to expand her business and created the Rio 40 degrees, the first Brazilian Restaurant in the heart of the CBD area in Perth. Through her "art of cooking", she has achieved love, family and success.
After the restaurant closed in the city, Alice tried to trade Rio 40 in two other commercial shops, but the format failed. Since then she has decided to focus only
in the famous “survival kit” and with the support of her husband, they start to build a licensed food truck.
For nearly 4 years, Rio 40 has participated in several Brazilian parties organised by Bamboo Productions as well at the Scarborough Sunset Market (winter and summer edition) with the food trailer that was built from an old caravan.
Nowadays, the family is united and entirely dedicated to Rio 40 with the new modern trailer launched in November 2021 in an incredible party at Sunset Markets in Scarborough. Rio 40 has brought to Perth the taste of Authentic Brazilian dishes and finger foods, carefully prepared with fresh ingredients and love.
