Bartolomeu talks about how cooking has always been a big part of his life, starting with his grandmother and mother who both taught him about traditional recipes in their native Brazil. A philosophy teacher by trade, he left Brazil several years ago to come to the Netherlands and open a food business. He believes the best thing about cooking is that food can bridge the gap between different cultures. I totally agree as stories about our cultures back home and expat lives started flowing so much easier when we sat and enjoyed the tastiest brazilian snacks. Manda Brasa is their name, amazing food made with lots of love is their game. Check out the personal branding session below.
