|Portuguese term or phrase: Broinha de Milho|
|Anyone know what they call this in American English, please?|
|broinha de milho (cornmeal biscuit/cookie)|
Since this is a typical Brazilian food, I would leave it in Portuguese with an English description in parentheses. I suggest "cornmeal biscuit" or if that doesn't sound crunchy enough, "cornmeal cookie".

|Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I think the Portuguese Broa is different to the Brazilian Broinha (which certinaly isn't a bread). Thanks Pina, your idea seems the most appropriate and you've obviously eaten the Brazilian Broinha de Milho before! :)|

He also recommends the Broa de Milho, typical Portuguese Corn Bread sold so fast at Marvelous Market you may need to put in an order, along with Marquês de Borba - a wine from Alentejo, stocked by good liquor stores and sometimes by Fresh Fields.
