Being Brazilian isn't that much different than being American so one of the only ways that my family can keep its roots is through food. Cheese bread was shown to me by my aunts and uncles when I was visiting them in Brazil. Cheese bread isn't a food that we eat on a special occasion in Brazil because it's not really a fancy food in Brazil. My mom and her family ate this a lot as kids because she had 11 siblings and didn't have a lot of money to spend on big meals for the whole family. So it has an important place in my mom's life and hopefully, we will never stop eating it and I will definitely passing on to my kids to remember their Brazilian roots.
