by LUCILIA DO CARMO "CILA"
Chef of her own kitchen in StªMargarida da Serra, Alentejo Litoral, headquarters of our HIDDEN PLACES, has a knowledge made of a longtime experience and brings passion to her work
Born in Água da Ramada, a nearby locality, her parents use to have a Tavern. Early she learned the culinary secrets from her mother and got used to taste and improve. All those traditional flavors coming to table of locals and travelers, who stopped on their way to the mines or to the family farms, became friendly to her
Her later experience working in a Regional Hospital and living in Melides by the sea, gave her a new perspective of service and understanding about international clients expectations. Here, the coast and the beach tourists give a special print to the local Alentejo atmosphere, assuming some different trends that Cila knows so well
