Feijoada -  and the Sony RX100

Feijoada is a traditional dish in Brazil, served typically on Saturdays around mid-day so you could pass out afterwards and wake up later in the day ready to finish celebrating the weekend. I lived in Brazil for three years and had a feijoada almost every weekend. It is made with black beans simmered overnight along with some parts of beef and pork that you were afraid to inquire about. It comes with sides of collard greens, oranges (to soften the taste), and farofa, a seasoned manioc flour to be sprinkled over the rice and beans to add texture. The complete meal pictured below is served along with great Brazilian music at Miss Favela in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Saturdays, as tradition demands. Fabuloso!  Fortunately I have the Sony RX100 with me at all times so I don't miss recording these culinary experiences.

Rumor has it that there will be an update announcement later this month for this popular Sony camera, called the DSC-RX100M2.  The specs on the new version remain largely the same except that there will be an addition of a hot shoe, a flip screen, wi-fi capabilities, and increased ISO range of 100-12800 (up from 100-6400). I am wondering if the addition of a hot shoe may indicate an accessory electronic viewfinder on the horizon.
