The cuisine of Paraná is the fruit of the culture of several ethnicities that colonized the state. They joined the traditions of the natives, our first inhabitants. From them, the consumption of pine nut, mate and fruits was inherited, as well as the preparation of maize and cassava. Today, our cuisine offers pamonha and couscous, as well as a great diversity of options with fish, as well as traditional meat dishes. The gastronomy with European influence is also very present in Paraná, as well as the festivals of typical dishes.
The culture of Paraná is very rich. Our stories and traditions were formed by the miscegenation of the most different peoples. First of all, the Portuguese, the Spaniards and the Africans joined our natives. Later they received the contribution of Italians, Germans, Dutch, Poles, Ukrainians, Japanese, Arabs, Koreans, Chinese and Bulgarians. Then, the already formed paranaense people gained more influence of Gauchos, Catarinense, Mineiros, and Northeastern. All this mix can be experienced in more than 50 museums, free fairs, cultural and gastronomic festivities, dance and music presentations, as well as in the crafts and day-to-day life of the people of Parana.
