  • Linn L on February 28, 2019

    It's so satisfying when these cheeseballs are being teared apart

  • EnvyMiA on February 28, 2019

    Your recipe says 2 1/4 cups and you should have said 1/2 cup of flour, now i cant make any…

  • Marcos RC on February 28, 2019

    Oh my god. there are so many comments from Taubaté.

  • Matheus Majer on February 28, 2019

    Well done, Chef John. The best cheese to use on this recipe is Queijo Minas from Serra da Canastra. That's the place I was born. Big hug from Ireland! 🙂

  • Rogério Pereira on February 28, 2019

    Minha mãe é pernambucana, ele faz um pão de queijo e outras comidas gostosas. Estou até gordinho.

  • Arelis Garcia on February 28, 2019

    I am so happy I found this recipe, thank you so much, can’t wait to try it 🤗🙏🏼😇

  • Sherlock Holmes on February 28, 2019

    Chef John's voice is like Chills', but nicer to listen to.

  • D Kovorik on February 28, 2019

    Please can you provide a great recipe for Brazilian coxinha de galinha (chicken croquettes). They are very good and also require many flavorful sauces to use. Thanks

  • Tanya Ponce on February 28, 2019

    I always get these when in Brasil. The restaurant I go to is Salut!

  • Krystal E on February 28, 2019

    Um wow. Just wow. Those look delicious!! 🙂

  • Marcelle de Cássia Costa on February 28, 2019

    So, I tried the recipe and you NAILED the consistency of the pão de queijo. I think I'll need some extra salt for the flavor but I'm very happy with your recipe. Thank you very much! Those are a favorite in Brazil, as the comments from other Brazilians show, and this is an amazing recipe to make them abroad.

  • Warrior Son on February 28, 2019

    Is cassava flour also poisonous like raw cassava or do they already treat it before milling it..? 😞

  • Felipe Barcelos on February 28, 2019

    try it with dulce de leche or goiabada

  • Jacqueline Argueta on February 28, 2019

    Thank you so much for this recipe!!! (:

  • Hala Mohamed on February 28, 2019

    oh so nice where we can buy tapioca

  • leslie ruiz on February 28, 2019

    I absolutely love making these on any occasion

  • Haya Ibrahim on February 28, 2019

    Annoying Voice 😝

  • cellomon09 on February 28, 2019

    Is there a difference between tapioca flour and what’s labeled as “tapioca starch” in the local Asian market? I used the latter yesterday, and they kinda deflated on the pan. Still tasty though, just not as much air bubbles inside.

  • Icarus Ashcroft on February 28, 2019

    Could this be potentially done with corn starch?

  • Raquel Fonseca on February 28, 2019


  • Leah Banks on February 28, 2019

    isn't this Guga's exact recipe? (Ggua from gugafoods/sousvideeverything)

  • Gazza Sloane on February 28, 2019

    Well it would directly translated be Bread of Cheese 😄

  • theswediblegarden on February 28, 2019

    Chef John, Could oat flower (ground traditional oatmeal) be used instead of tapioca? Looks delicious but I do not keep tapioca on hand and would like more fiber. Thank you.

  • Tripel Dubbel on February 28, 2019

    I made these and the recipe worked great. What cheese you use will impact the flavor the most. Don’t use a real dry Parm. Finely shred your own.

  • Markus Schulz on February 28, 2019

    Why is this a restricted video on my YouTube Roku app?

  • Nicholas Jeremy on February 28, 2019

    This looks good but I don't have an oven): any suggestions for one guys? Love your videos aa always chef John cheers

  • alohathaxted on February 28, 2019

    You are the Bailey Jay of trying it your way.

  • João Vítor M on February 28, 2019

    Ficaram lindos, Chef João!

  • Austin Thompson on February 28, 2019

    I love you chef John

  • Igor Góis on February 28, 2019

    Tip: Sour yuca starch AKA "polvilho azedo" helps with the dough growth

  • Igor Góis on February 28, 2019


  • Valkes on February 28, 2019

    I want to love your channel but the metric of your voices makes me want to stop watching you.

  • Volheim on February 28, 2019

    Can you also use potato starch?

  • Luz Kaplan on February 28, 2019

    I love pão de queijo…in Paraguay and Argentina they call them "chipá" (chee-pah), it's basically the same but they usually use butter instead of olive oil to make them. Love from Buenos Aires!

  • Leo Canaan on February 28, 2019

    As a brazilian and a pão-de-queijo lover, my suggestion to you, Chef John, is to have pão-de-queijo sandwich with pork sausage. This is one of the most appreciated snacks in some certain regions of southeast Brazil. Go for it.

  • Maria Luisa on February 28, 2019

    OH MY GOD that's the most representative dish of my state, that's so cool!!!! Loves from Brazil
    Edit: seriously, cayenne on pão de queijo??

  • ka loren on February 28, 2019

  • Jonathan Davi De Almeida on February 28, 2019


  • Abhay Aggarwal on February 28, 2019

    So if we make the pao bigger, we can use them as burger buns?

  • Anna P on February 28, 2019

    Chef, is it possible to use all purpose flour in this recipe?
    Thank you

  • Miguel Mar on February 28, 2019

    Enjoy all your recipes.  Have you tried with regular all purpose flour?

  • Daniel Vousden on February 28, 2019

    This is also called Arrow Root flour, for any Brits watching

  • Alexander Schaefer on February 28, 2019

    These are great. Thank you for making another Brazilian dish.

  • NoButIDoHaveHerpes on February 28, 2019

    Mmmmm…homemade Brazi-Bites, yaaay!

  • D Jav on February 28, 2019

    Can you use rice flour instead?
