Brazilian Fyll Farago doesn't feel so far from home when he's in the kitchen.
"I do [miss home], but because I cook I can feel comfort in Tasmania - because food is the way that you feel your background," he said.
Mr Farago's stall, Brazil in Tassie, sells mostly pastel: a popular street food consisting of a fried pastry pocket with different kinds of filling.
He and his wife, both physiotherapists who work in disability support, work at the stall on weekends.
"I always loved cooking so when I come to Australia I start working with some Brazilian chefs, and I learned some skills and techniques," he said. "When we moved from Sydney in July I had a chat with my wife, 'What do you think about having a Brazilian food stall in Tasmania, it will be the first one?' And so we just did it."
His was one of many stalls at World Street Eats on Sunday. Patrons braved the cold, wind, and rain to celebrate multiculturalism in Launceston through their tastebuds, with other stalls selling food from Lebanon, the Philippines, Thailand, the Netherlands, and other nations in Civic Square.
