Passionate about food and cooking, Cláudia ( one one of the co-founders of Azeitona Verde) has extended her interests and concerns to include how the food we eat is actually produced,  and it is with these three topics in mind that she creates her cookery books. Her main purpose being to gently lead people back to producing their own food, back to their kitchens and homemade meals and also to become more interested and inquisitive about the food they eat.

‘Da Horta Para a Mesa’ book

Written with the view of telling the story of how the organic garden at Azeitona Verde came about, this book entices readers with the love of growing their own fruit and vegetables to prepare their food.

‘Brunch’ book

In collaboration with her eldest daughter, Sarah, who shares the same taste for good food, this book was written with one of their favourite meals in mind – the uncomplicated and healthy  brunch.
