“Talking about food means so much more than talking about food.”

(Français) « Avec ce projet c’est l’envie de partager, de conserver, de transmettre qui aujourd’hui est important. La mémoire disparaît et on en a besoin »

“It is not only spices and olive oil but memory and transmission”

“Avós são sempre avós, em todo lugar: cheias de mimos, apelidos carinhosos (às vezes a paciência um pouco curta), e muita história para contar”
