Your host Paula
Born to a Goan family who has lived in Goa, Mozambique and Portugal, Paula is a true reflection of the cultural diversity embedded in Portuguese cuisine. Paula’s love of food and cooking started from a young age, and food brought her family together early and often. Her mother, an artist in the kitchen, would constantly invite people into their homes (Paula remembers when she was at school she would come home on a Saturday to find her mother had invited the entire teaching staff over for a meal). Paula’s family cooked internationally – one night they might eat traditional Portuguese homecooking while the next night her mother would make Goan samosas from scratch, teaching Paula the proper technique to make the dough and fold the samosas correctly. When Paula’s mother passed away a few years ago, her mother’s friends began coming to Paula, saying how much they missed her mother’s cooking. It was this that started Paula on her second career, in food. She began by cooking the family recipes, Goan and Portuguese, that her mother’s friends loved so much. After taking a course in cake design, Paula also started baking and found another passion in creating art from cakes. She opened her own cake studio has been baking and doing catering for friends since then. Paula is a true artist with food, and she is excited to help you experience and understand Portuguese-Goan culture and cuisine.
