Firefighter, traveller, nurse, animal lover … Lived in Saudi Arabia, South France, England, Thailand and in a Yacht in the Caribbean in the last years. Returned home in 2016 because I couldn’t forget Porto. Home is where our heart is and life is better when shared with who cares.
The thing I missed most when I was living abroad was the Portuguese food and seating with my friends and family around the table. The thing I miss more being in Portugal is meeting people from all over the world so when I read about the Portuguese Table it sounded like a wish coming true.
I am passionate about hosting and about food and all my life I learned how to cook with the Portuguese flavours with my mother, my beautiful matriarch.
You will not find meat on my table but living in a fisherman village you can taste amazing fish and also vegetarian food made with our flavours – some of them, adapted from traditional Portuguese famous dishes.
• Fish soup, Seafood and tuna pate, Corn bread and crackers, Olives with herbs and olive oil
• Codfish, in the oven, with crispy corn bread on top & potatoes
• Delicious “Drunk pear” made with red wine, Port wine, sugar and cinnamon
• Choice of Red, White or Rosé Wine from Douro Region and Water
Coffee or Tea with a homemade pastry
