Brazilian Cheese Bread

Hi Everyone,


 last week I was looking for the "Brazilian Cheese bread" recipe and I found it. Now I have different problem,to find flour.They call it "Manioc starch (polvilho doce) and (polvilho azedo) and companies name are:AMAFIL and YOKI. I live Long Island New York and we do not have here any Brazilian speciality store,but large spanish population and they do not carry it.Is any other store which carry that product???  Please, help.

What your looking for is Tapioca flour; made from the root of the manioc or cassava plant.  Hope that this helps.


Tell us how the recipe turns out and better yet pictures if you can. . . ,

Saintdennis,


As suiflower said, it's available at stores that cater to Chinese and South East Asian cuisine.  Here's a place to start looking for stores on Long Island:

According to their website, the "Mercado Brazil" has both Polvilho Azedo and Polvilho Doce.  The brand they carry is YOKI.  The price if $2.90 for 500 g package, plus shipping. Check their site at: www.mercadobrazil.com and click on "flours" in the Categories list.  Good luck.  I have Amafil, which I brought back from Brazil.  I also brought queijo mineiro, so I make authentic Pão de Queijo.


If you check out the web site of O Globo's Mais Você, last year there was a contest to choose the best recipies for Pão de Queijo.  All those recipes are arquived on the "Culinario" pages of that site.
