Time to say goodbye.

After a year filled with cheese balls, excitement and hard work we're stopping our project to focus on other life events. We had a blast and we couldn't have done it without you - Thank you! You can still browse our website but the online shop is now closed. If you'd like to know more about our closure, read our goodbye letter.

If you really need some Pão de Queijo in your life, Rita might be able to offer a catering option. You can contact her at ritaduarte@hotmail.co.uk.

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.

Read our story

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.

A crunchy outside giving way to a cloud-like interior. Sounds ace, right? Right.
