I grew up with my grandparents in a small farming village of central Portugal and soon learned to value the “Portuguese Gastronomical heritage”. People, Travel and Food are the reasons why I decided to hit the road, and fundamental what led me to trade the world of luxury hospitality for a pen, some paper and a camera.
I constantly seek little and intimate details in my travels, as I believe they are a destination’s culture in its raw state. Above all I am a firm believer in cultural identity through gastronomy.
The book is a journey through the Portugal which is Semper Fidelis to its origins. A country proud of its culinary identity and heritage, where stories about the food, the places, the eateries, the villages, the producers, the fishermen, the farmers and the chefs who dedicate their life and their day to make traditional Portuguese cuisine the everyday wonder that it is.
