From Brazil To You

I am a former lawyer, and currently a trained chef, culinary instructor, food blogger, and a proud mother of two...

Born and raised in Brazil, I got married to an American and immigrated to the USA in 2002. I lived for 5 years in California, where I attended California Culinary Academy, graduating in Culinary Arts – Le Cordon Bleu program. As part of my training, I carried out an externship at Elegant Events Catering, Inc.

In 2007, I moved with my family to Texas. Since then, I have dedicated my time to raising two wonderful girls and keeping on doing what I do best: cooking! – and now teaching others how to cook. I am also the author of  the From Brazil To You food blog, where I share Brazilian recipes (mainly), fusions, and personal favorites.  

I would love to hear from you, and exchange ideas about food and other interesting things. xx
