Cascudo Biscuit: Recipe from Ibirité MG

* Recipe by Maria de Lourdes Teixeira Faria Gomes and Jésus Carvalho Gomes, from Ibirité for the project Sabores de Minas

You don’t have to go far to taste the culinary delights of Minas Gerais. Near Belo Horizonte, in the surroundings of Serra da Moeda and along the legendary river Paraopeba, there is always another city to offer its best table. In a good weekend or a long vacation, get in the car and head for spices, sweets, snacks, snacks, drinks, cookies and cakes that are hard to leave a memory and taste.

Take the opportunity to discover rainbow-colored pasta or cassava empadão. Along these paths rich in iron and full of stories from the Golden Age, Kale and Taro are gaining popularity and have become world food. The journey that reveals this flavor begins in Ibirité, 21 kilometers from the capital, which has a recipe for biscudo, made with sour cassava flour. It can be enjoyed at JB Pães & Conveniências, downtown, owned by couple Jésus and Maria de Lourdes Gomes.

Every day, at 10 a.m., the cookie comes out hot from the oven and has a legion of fans waiting. Maria de Lourdes, better known as Bila, said that the biscuit is successful, like the salty bread, because it is good at any time and “doesn’t get sick”. After tasting several cascudos, we say “see you soon” to the friendly couple and set off on some gastronomic adventures.
