Pão de Queijo made by Bun Dia
“Cheese Buns or Pão de Queijo: (as we call it in Brazil) are without a doubt the most popular pastries among Brazilians. These cheesy, naturally gluten free and delicious buns have been in my family’s recipe books and on the tables for generations. We eat it for breakfast, as a side dish, or as appetizers, but mainly as an afternoon snack accompanied by our famous coffee “cafezinho”. It’s been almost 17 years that I left my beloved Brazil to move to the USA, and there is nothing that comforts me more when I’m home sick than freshly baked cheese buns. The name – Bun Dia! Was inspired by the Portuguese saying “Bom Dia!” which means “Good Morning” or “Have a nice day!”. Because to me no matter how hard my day was or will be, what the weather is or how I feel (specially when I’m feeling homesick), just the cozy smell of the fresh buns are already enough to guarantee that I will have a Nice Day! So, we are here to share the love! We hope you too enjoy it!”

Feijoada is a black bean stew that is brewed with a variety of salted and smoked pork and beef products from carne-seca to smoked pork spareribs. The more traditional feijoada also includes “cheaper” cuts such as pig’s ears, feet and tails, and beef tongue. The rich, smoky stew is then served with rice, sautéed collard greens or kale, orange slices and topped with toasted cassava flour (farofa). The meal is just as warm, comforting, rich and vibrant as the music, people and culture of Brazil. 360- 991-6966
