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.

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.
