Lulu’s Brasilian Snack’s

We are a Brasilian-American family living in the Twin Cities. At almost every Brasilian gathering you will find Pão de Queijo (= cheese bread) on the table. Its culinary roots can almost certainly be traced back to our home state of Minas Gerais in Southeastern Brasil. Pão de queijo is a delicious addition to breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and is a must with coffee or tea. You can enjoy them as a sandwich by adding fillings, or with your favorite dipping sauce! We use only the finest quality ingredients to make your pão de queijo. Our cheese is locally sourced and we use tapioca flour authentic to Brasil. Our pão de queijo is gluten-free, nut-free, sugar-free, and trans-fat-free. We decided to start this business to share a bit of our Brazilian culture with you. Bom Apetite!

“Workplaces today are becoming increasingly more diverse, and globalization is creating business opportunities all over the world. Today, chances are you are either working with, supervising, or doing business with culturally diverse clients and colleagues. Diversity is a fact of business; that’s not going to change.

As the President and CEO of Mastering Cultural Differences, I design customized programs for organizations that want team members to understand social and cultural differences and work well across those differences. My goal is to help clients create environments where all individuals feel included and can thrive.
