Pão de Queijo.Brazilian cheese
A proper Pão de Queijo is a two-bite business: crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Made with cassava flour and fresh cheese, it’s a farmer’s take on traditional European bread - without the wheat. Pão de Queijo is a staple snack at most cafes, restaurants and dinner parties across Brazil. It’s cheesily addictive and naturally gluten free.
Try pairing it with a short black coffee São Paulo style, or spread thickly with guava● jam for a sweet contrast.
Guava jam is made with guava, a tropical fruit that’s sweet and aromatic. It’s the most popular dip for Pão de Queijo. You can use your favourite english jam as a substitute.
