Inventing succulent dishes and sweet desserts has always been my passion and to the extent of wanting to make it my job. Now in Portugal, where I have been living for the last three years, I continue to prepare new pastries and cakes.

During the construction of my house, I had to reflect and study the creation of my patisserie workshop, using the right equipment and adhering to the obligatory health standards. I am now, therefore, in a position to provide satisfaction to future clients wishing to taste my selection of patisserie.

I pay special attention to the selection of the right ingredients and select the best quality for my buns, croissants, tarts and cakes etc. and await the pleasure of offering you a mouth-watering experience. I look forward to preparing some classic french pastries and cakes for your special occasions or for your everyday pleasure.

Being a member of the Les Copains de Lagos association, I will be preparing the very special puff pastry almond tart for the celebration of Galette des Rois. This event is celebrated in January where all French households eat this sweet delicacy.



Did you know...

Galette des Rois is the French version of Portugal's Bolo de Rei.

It is traditionally shared at Epiphany, on 6 January. It celebrates the arrival of the Three Wise Men in Bethlehem.

It is composed of a puff pastry cake, with a small charm hidden inside.
