Everywhere in Brazil you can get delicious little bread balls, crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. They are often filled with sauce such as cheese or cheese and ham and they are called Pao, but in Brazilian Portuguese that sounds like Paaaaaaaaaang.
Now the special Casava flour which makes these balls is available as a mix from Isabel’s Brazilian Flavours.
While it sounds a bit niche and exotic, the new factor which might make Pao more appealing is that Cassava provides a chewy starch which is a good replacement for wheat fo those who are intolerant.
Isabel’s also supplies some other Brazilian specialities, and while Brazilian food in general might still be a bit off our radar, the Pao could be a tipping point for some.
