"To cook is not a service, it is a way to love the others" (Mia Couto, Mozambican writer)
I love to eat, and I love to cook! I live in the very center of Lisboa and I host in my own home, in the living room where we either eat by ourselves or with big groups of friends and family.
For dinners and cooking classes I may also welcome friends and family to share our meals and friendships.
I developed my love for food while growing up in a typical Portuguese family. The passion for cooking comes mainly from the passion for eating, and this latter comes a lot from the joy of the social interaction around the table. :) I cook typical dishes the traditional way, and also often blend ingredients and techniques from other cultures and latitudes.
