Minas Valley began in 2018 with our craving to eat homemade styled "Pão de Queijo" as we used to eat in Brazil. Also, some friends that visited Brazil and had the opportunity to try "Pão de Queijo" asked us about it. Then, we decided to bring out our family's recipe and adapt it to local Canadian ingredients to create the desired authentic "pão de queijo" Cheese Rolls. After many creative attempts, voilà, we discovered the right mixture that brought all that we had been looking for... perfect texture and flavour. In 2019, after getting so much positive feedback, and friends asking for more, we decided to create Minas Valley and start sharing with everybody. We are proud to bring our high quality products to market, knowing they are exactly the same as we would serve our family.
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. They 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?
