The Durello story began more than 50 years ago around the family table in the Brazilian countryside and became reality in a small commercial kitchen in Auckland’s central city in 2014.

Neide Durello was born and raised in rural Brazil of Italian origins. One of nine children, she realised at a young age that love and affection combined with good food were essential ingredients for shared moments of happiness in the family. By the age of 14, Neide’s mother chose her to help in the kitchen. She was instantly hooked on the pleasure of preparing very simple food with extraordinary flavours. Today Neide says she is always learning new ways but her home recipes captivate food-lovers in a very different part of the world. As Neide says, “her recipes start in her heart!”

Her second and third generations have brought these delicacies to New Zealand with the same care and dedication with which the family has prepared great recipes for all these decades. Marcelo Menoita, Neide’s son, and his wife Barbara Scholten started Durello Traditional Brazilian Foods Ltd 2 two years ago.

They have won several Food Awards and today they supply their delicious Brazilian savouries to over 80 supermarkets and restaurants nationwide. In December last year they opened their first take away “Durello Little Shop on the Corner” on 350/ Shop 12 Queen Street in Auckland probably the smallest take away shop in New Zealand. They have just launched their latest delicious savoury the “Brazilian Prawn Delight” which will be available in the Shop from next week on. The Brazilian Prawn Delight has won the Best New Product at the Bidvest Trade Show in Auckland.
