Until very recently, a “espaço gourmet” (gourmet area) was a privilege of those who lived in large homes in Brazil, with enough space to accommodate countertops, stove, special ovens, long tables, chairs, TV and other items that made up the environment. But for some time now, the term became common at residential condominium new projects for the middle class as a recreational common area for use by all residents of the building, for small little parties, dinners and meetings between friends and family have become fashionable. It is increasingly common for people who love to cook to receive friends “almost at home” at the “espaço gourmet” of the condo.
This gourmet area prevents dirt and mess inside the apartments, people are received with more comfort because the spaces are larger and it is also safer to hire a cook and waiter and hold larger parties.

Until recently, this area in Brazil was called Salão de Festas (Party Salon), that’s it.
