Brazilian Cheese Bread Company

On my recent visit to the Saturday morning farmers market in Santa Rosa, I blinked and blinked again when the vision of a stand selling pao de queijo appeared before my eyes. I ran over there and the proprietor must have read my expression greeting me with, “can you believe it, pao de queijo right here in Santa Rosa?!?”

Yara was hawking, griddling the little cheese breads, and handing out sample liberally. She beckoned to a couple with a stroller, “Here’s one for the baby, great when they’re teething.” She promotes them as low-carb and gluten-free.

These are frozen and come in various flavor options. They’re $10 for a pack of 20 or $18 for two packs. I tried a plain one. Much as I wanted to like it, this was beyond chewy and gooey, headed toward rubbery and tough. But maybe this was only a batch variation or one that was reheated too long.

Has anyone else tried ‘em?
