Easter Preparation

Doing the yearly traditional Easter preparations – dying eggs, baking Easter bread…we are in charge of the family meal this year, and have agreed on Krustenbraten mit Sauerkraut, Rotkohl and Klössen. That’s more German than what my family will be eating back home, I am certain!
Oh, and not to forget the starters: duck prosciutto and chèvre courtesy of the cheese fairy @Sunshine Pantry.
Desert, you may ask? Vanilla bean ice cream with home made maraschino cherries, topped with whipped cream and shavings of Taza chocolate….

Pão de Queijo

This Brazilian staple translates to ‘cheese bread’, little cheesy bits of  goodness that are great as starters.

2 cups of milk
1 cup of vegetable oil
1 tbsp salt
1 package of manioc flour – 500 grams
4 eggs
1 cup of grated cheese – Parmesan

Combine the milk, oil, and salt and bring to a boil. Slowly add the flour. Let the dough cool.
Add the eggs and the cheese
Form into balls and bake at 350 F for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown on top.
