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.

This is our story.
A family adventure.

Rita’s saudade

When Rita left the tropics for Norwich she missed Pão de Queijo so much she started baking it from scratch. For the last 15 years she’s been perfecting her secret family recipe. Now her little cheese bread is so delicious, some people think it’s better than the original. We can’t wait for you to try it.

Our ingredients

Saudade is a feeling of nostalgia and homesickness characteristic of Brazilian temperament. This portuguese word has no translation.

Family business

Rita is already renowned for her Pão de Queijo with her family and friends.

And none more so than with Clara, her son Pedro’s girlfriend. Allergic to gluten, Pão de Queijo has quickly become a staple in Clara’s diet, and she continues to be in awe of the tasty and fluffy gluten free snacks.

A truly family enthused adventure, Rita’s dream is for Londoners to try her delicious Brazilian bites, and with the help of Clara and Pedro, to share them with everyone in town.
