She did only what a daughter could do and called her mother in Brazil and asked for the family recipe. Her mom was excited to share the family secrets that made “the perfect cheese bread.” Junea and her husband made their first batch in their home kitchen that summer.
But they did encounter a problem--they had a hard time finding the most important ingredient from her family’s recipe, “Minas” cheese, it was not available in the United States! So they spent months trying countless cheeses, hoping to re-create the taste they loved. Finally, one day in the spring of 2010, yes, almost one year later, the most delicious cheese bread they had ever tasted came out of the oven – it was so good that they literally devoured the whole tray in minutes! And thus, Brazi Bites were born!
They were excited to share their creation with everyone, so they signed up for their first local food show. Two days before the show, we stayed up all night rolling thousands of pieces of cheese bread by hand but it simply wasn’t enough. The response was totally overwhelming and they sold out halfway through the show! At that point, they knew they had something special…
Fast forward to today....Their little cheese bread experiment became their passion, and now Brazi Bites can be found in hundreds of stores across the United States! They are as excited as they were the moment that first batch came out of the oven in their home kitchen. One bite and you’ll understand why!
Brazi Bites would make a great addition to your Thanksgiving dinner, holiday parties or Christmas dinners.
