THE ADVENTURES OF CHEF ALÉXIS IN THE GARDEN OF AROMATICS
At the invitation of Luís Alves, owner of Cantinho das Aromáticas, 12 cooks accepted the Foraging Chef’s Adventure challenge.
The adventure happened on June 18 in this farm in Vila Nova de Gaia, the only urban type in the European space that produces medicinal and spice aromatic plants in organic production.
In addition to the conviviality Foraging Chef’s Adventure proposed to each of the cooks to make a dish with herbs collected on this farm. The initiative intended to draw attention to the combination of sophisticated cuisine and local and fresh ingredients.
Chef Aléxis Gregório is the executive chef of the Café Luso and Adega Machado restaurants.
