Pão de Queijo. Brazilian cheese bread/bun/ball.

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.

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