Made by Brazilians

Last week Rafael and I went to the exhibition Made by Brazilians, it took place at the old Hospital Matarazzo, that was disabled for more than 20 years.

Here are my favourites 🙂

Hope you have a nice week!

I would help them in the kitchen some days during the week and on weekends. Saturday was especially for pasta, my aunt would make lasagna, cannelloni, gnocchi and I was responsible for cooking them.

Leek Quiche


Yesterday I was looking for a light recipe to cook for dinner, I have this brazilian cook book, Dona Benta, and it has a lot of recipes. I came across the section of tartlets, pizzas and pies, and I finally decided to make a leek quiche. This recipe is very good, you can have it for dinner, brunch, lunch…just pick a meal!
