Our Story

After living in Brazil for almost 10 years, Dwayne & Shannon Klassen were immersed in the Brazilian culture and learnt their culinary secrets.
Under the instruction of numerous gaúchos (traditional nomadic ranchers), Dwayne learned the art of roasting meat in the authentic Brazilian churrasco way and is able to cook cuts of beef, pork and chicken to give you an authentic Brazilian experience, including aromas and flavors.
Shannon mastered the making of many salads and desserts that commonly go along with the churrasco experience and will wow your taste buds with delicious flavors.
