Portuguese food photographer and stylist Susana Machado shares her personal recipes
Born and raised in Mafra, Portugal by her grandmother who was known as the “village baker,” it comes as no surprise that Susana Machado’s passion revolves around food—styling, photography and, of course, the sheer pleasure of eating. A young mother of three, Machado is now the Creative Director of Suvelle Cuisine. She admits to finding ways to tweak recipes more often than not, in order to include an international twist that makes them more interesting. Her main concern is primarily the quality of ingredients that she puts on her table. She is always on the look out for creative and beautiful recipes that easily appeal to most. After all, "food is, in my opinion, a way of showing how much we love others," Machado says. For this Entertaining Issue of Philippine Tatler Homes, Machado shares a few personal recipes for easy-to-prepare dishes, both savoury and sweet, that are sure to delight your next set of guests at home.
