Hands on Heart,
Six years ago I made the decision to pursue a different career completely. I went from accountancy to the gastronomic world.
I was a young woman who went into a professional kitchen knowing nothing. Since then I have learned that a commercial kitchen is a crowded and hectic environment. Walking into a new kitchen for the first time can be an extremely scary thing. Each kitchen has its own culture and way of doing things and it requires so much more than time, effort and energy, it requires a purpose and an endless passion for producing the very finest "Haute Cuisine".
My passion increases every day. It’s even greater than before. I have been working in a city that has developed its own gastronomic culture immensely in the last decade. I would describe London as a world living in a city. A place where skills, knowledge and talent from all over the world are shared and "blended" into a truly original and exotic style!
As a result of my continuous learning I decided to go back to my cultural and upbringing roots and share Brazilian and Portuguese Flavours and to participate in the project Journey of Flavours, to further explore and discover new smells, new ingredients and new ideas. My aim is to share the talent, knowledge and culinary traditions of the countries.
I believe every country needs to share their knowledge and the wonderful gastronomic experiences.
Hands on heart, I believe the link between food, nature and love is the strongest one there is.
Enjoy the feast!
