Minas Valley began in 2018 with our craving to eat homemade style "Pão de Queijo" as we were used to eat in Brazil. Also, some friends that have been in Brazil and have had the opportunity to try "Pão de Queijo" asked us about it. Then, we decided to bring out our family's recipe, adapt it to local Canadian ingredients to create the desired authentic "pão de queijo" Cheese Rolls. After many failed attempts, voilà, we got the right mixture that brought all that we have been looking for... perfect texture and flavour. In 2019, after getting so many positive feedback, and friends asking for more, we decided to create Minas Valley and start spreading to everybody. With love from our family to yours!
Maybe you are curious.. Why is the name Minas Valley?
It's because "Pão de Queijo" comes from a state of Brazil called Minas Gerais. This beautiful region has many valleys and mountains. It was our inspiration to create Minas Valley. Nowadays, "Pão de Queijo" is very popular all over Brazil. You can find it at all bakeries, coffee shops, groceries stores and at so many more places. But it may taste different from place to place because "pão de Queijo" in Brazil is the same as apple pie in Canada. So many different recipes. Right?
