Brazilian Cheese Bread is made of a special imported Brazilian flour and selected New Zealand ingredients. The flour used (Manioc starch) is 100% gluten free, and the product has been granted the Cross Grain Logo from the Coeliac New Zealand..
The product is a new concept to New Zealand. The combination of cheese and bread, in this warm cocktail sized snack, is unique.
It is great as an appetizer, entrée, alongside with your preferred drink or even with your main dish. Its effectiveness is clear because of two basic reasons: It’s very quick and easy to prepare, and it’s suitable with any meal or drinks.
As a unique product it has been very well received by the New Zealand public. Brazilian Cheese Bread was launched at the beginning of November 2013. Every single cocktail sized cheese bread, was rolled and packed by hand in a small commercial kitchen in the city. After only a few months there was so much demand that specialised machinery had to be imported from Brazil and the operation had to be moved to a larger professional A-grade kitchen in Albany, Auckland North Shore. It’s sold in several stores, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants, and it is on the menu of several hotel bars and restaurants as a snack food or appetizer.
