Eat like an Olympian with Hunters of Helmsley

Rio inspired Bauru sandwich gets gold medal from Yorkshire deli

To celebrate the 2016 Olympic games Hunters of Helmsley will be serving up a taste of Rio in the form of a classically Brazilian Bauru sandwich.


Whilst the Olympians will no doubt be sticking to carefully planned diets, fans back in Britain can now get a taste of Rio right here in Ryedale. The Bauru sandwich, which is hugely popular in Brazil, was created by a law student called Casemiro Pinto Neto, otherwise known by his nickname ‘Bauru’. Legend has it that he entered his favourite restaurant during the 1930s and asked the kitchen to make him his favourite sandwich. His creation was so delicious that the chef added it to the menu and the Bauru sandwich was born!

This tasty lunchtime option consists of crusty bread, locally sourced beef which will be home cooked at Hunters, melted mozzarella, zingy pickles and juicy tomatoes. The South American treat will be available to buy in store for £4.50 throughout the games.

Christine Garnett, who owns Hunters of Helmsley with her husband Chris, said: “We always love to celebrate exciting occasions and of course events don’t get much bigger than the Olympic games!  After doing some research into Brazilian food, we came across the story of the Bauru sandwich. We decided to try it out and after one bite we knew we had picked a winner. It really is a delicious recipe and one that we’re sure people will enjoy trying – a little taste of Rio right here in the North York Moors!”
