Luisa Fernandes

Luísa Fernandes was born in Monte Real, Leiria, Portugal. Luisa’s true passion has always been cooking. She always enjoys cooking for family and for friends. Professionaly, she was a orthopaedic surgery assistant nurse for 30 years. In 1998, she decided to take the risk and she opened her own restaurant “Tachos de São Bento”, in Lisbon. It was a bold at the time.
Luisa did not have any professional culinary experience besides her own recipes, but she still followed her heart. Luisa’s knowledge of food was always extensive. She visited the majority of countries in Europe as well as Malta, Canada, Morocco, México, Sudan and Ruanda (this last two working as a parachute nurse).
