Illustrated recipes

The members of the Art Club Portugal come together once a week to paint, to learn and to lunch. We lunch Portuguese style with lots of fresh ingredients of the season. The idea of a recipe book combined with art work was born.

In the near future we plan to publish a cookbook with authentic Portuguese recipes and lots of illustrations in full color made by the members of the Art Club Portugal.

For the time being you can find the recipes and illustrations on this site.
