Then I will create the menu for you send it across with the estimated food costs. Please do not book my services and then when I try and contact you again you do not respond to my emails, I  have no other source of income this is my work. So if I have other clients who would like to book my services and you have booked and reserved a date and then you cannot commit to your booking please do not contact me in the first instance.

My Food:

I like to cook various different styles and flavours of food. My style of cooking is family style which is down to earth, fresh and well presented. I am not a fine dining or Michelin style chef, I do not do any fancy plating artwork or amazing garnishes this is not my style. I am very down to earth in my cooking I cook simple foods, I cook simple foods as I like to get the best produce I can for your chosen budget. I think keeping my food simple I can the create the best tasting food I can as I am not over complicating the food and flavours. I use all natural flavourings to enhance the produce that I buy, cook & present.

 

I use all local food suppliers in Portugal when available. My food I create/cook is freshly made daily I use natural fresh herbs, spices & marinades. If you are looking for very fine dining/Michelin star experience I am sorry this is not me or my style of cooking. My style is very natural, I enjoy only working with natural foods and natural flavourings this is very important to me.

 

I am very passionate about the food I cook and very passionate about providing the best service always. I do work hard, I am very discreet, clean, tidy and very well organised. I respect every different kitchen that I work within, I take pride in my food I take pride in providing always a professional service. I make sure I use the best natural ingredients for each clients allocated budget.

 

If you have any specific requirements and or any suggestions for food that you like please do not hesitate to ask. I used to cook for vegan, vegetarian, plant based & special dietary foods. I found that there was little response & interest in these foods, I have taken these menus off my website. So from now on I am just concentrating on standard, simple foods which what I have been requested & find most popular to cook.

 

Other:

I would also like to mention that I always recycle all the packaging that all food items are presented in. I will also recycle all products during my time cooking for you. Portugal and the Algarve has very good free recycling points and bins in most public areas. Please make sure you try and recycle it takes a few mins daily and when you go out you will pass most times recycling points available for you to deposit all of your recycling. I also use all chemical free cleaning products so there is no chemical waste entering our beautiful Mother Earth, Gaia, please also think about using these products as they are becoming more and more available. You can find chemical free products in all good health stores and online.  You can use chemical free cleaning products, natural products for washing clothes and personal hygiene toiletries. These will all leave no chemicals going to the water systems and infecting again our Mother Earth, Gaia. Using natural beauty, toiletries & plant based products for you, your skin and personally will keep you feeling healthy & loving. Not only will you be helping yourself, others, Mother Earth, Gaia. You will also feel very satisfied and have a nice sense of achievement.

 

Thank you for your understanding, blessings & love to you all.
