Towards the end of last year I had the opportunity to photograph Cura, at the Lisbon Four Seasons Hotel. Shortly after I visited, they were awarded their first Michelin Star under executive chef Pedro Pena Bastos, for which they deserve a round of applause!
Do Largo – Comida Local & Mercearia
Mercearia Do Largo, in Évora´s historic district, recently underwent extensive renovations and have reopened with a brand new look on one of the cities most picturesque squares. In collaboration with Be Aromatic, a local organic herb farm, they have revamped the menu: all locally sourced, all organic and all seasonal ingredients. Their menu is all 100% delicious (and I would know because I ate EVERYTHING) and not only good for you, but also good for the planet. In addition to the restaurant, they also sell Be Aromatic herbs and products, as well as several other locally sourced, organic goodies such…
Sal Verde – A cookbook
This cookbook project was many years in the making, a passion project for both Rute, the author, and I. We have been friends for many years and had often talked about one day making a cookbook. When the opportunity arose, we jumped at the chance, not knowing that it would be almost 3 years later that our book would be printed and on the shelf. The entire production took place on Rute´s farm in the Alentejo and we cooked and styled and photographed and tasted and then cooked again and then photographed again… and then again just one more time…
Passeite | Organic olive oil in Portugal
Marije and Gui are a Dutch-Portuguese couple producing top quality olive oil in the Coimbra region of Portugal. We have known them for almost a decade and these two are powerhouses, always up to something new and innovative. Gui opened and runs a restaurant, Taberna do Azeite, in the old part of Coimbra (closed now thanks to COVID) that focused especially on paring olive oils with small plates of food. And Marije is the chief farming lady: planting, clearing, pruning, harvesting, pressing, bottling and packaging their organic, small batch extra virgin olive oil for their brand, Passeite. Safe to say…

Taqueria Pistola y Corazon
A few weeks before we embarked on our crazy European road trip (and my access to the internet was reduced practically nothing) I was contacted by a Taqueria Pistola y Corazon, a Mexican restaurant in Lisbon, to shoot some images for their site and branding. I loved this place, their food is SO GOOD and unlike a lot of “Mexican restaurants” that aren´t in Mexico, their food is the real thing… the best I´ve had since I was last in Mexico… which was a very long time ago. These are a few of my favourite images from 2 days spent…
Oviedo | Spain
Our first stop on our Asturian trip last summer was the small city of Oviedo. As usual, we gravitate towards the food markets… it´s like a built-in compass that we have, impossible to avoid. So it didn´t take us long to find Oviedo´s Mercado, which is where we spent most of our time (and our money). The Asturians are very much into super-stinky blue cheese and cured meats… loads of cured meats. This is not a vegetarian friendly destination, but lucky for us we´re not (vegetarians) and a fair amount of our returning luggage was filled with jamon.
Wine in Lisbon – for Accent Magazine
As promised last week, here a few out-takes and some of my favourite images from a recent assignment for Accent magazine, Aeromexico´s inflight magazine. You can see the tear sheets from the magazine HERE.
Modern Lisbon – A food story for Travel & Leisure Magazine
As promised last week, these are a few out-takes and some of my favourite images from a recent assignment for Travel and Leisure Mexico… an amazing combination of food and travel photography in one of my favourite cities in all the world (second only to Cape Town!!)
It´s about early spring, sunshine on the balcony, lazy days with good friends, flaky pastry, smokey bacon, guitar riffs wafting in on the breeze, dirty dishes that someone else will wash up… hopefully… otherwise, who cares? They can stay there until tomorrow.
