Hi there! Welcome to our blog! We're Rita and Ricardo, we're Portuguese, and we live in a charming Portuguese fishing town called Ericeira.
We're passionate about food, nature, our garden, traveling, and cooking!
I (Rita) decided to start Coco and Camellia in 2020 when our world changed, and we had to stay home with plenty of free time. More recently, in 2022, I challenged my husband Ricardo, who is trained in bar and catering, to share his bartending and cooking skills here on the blog, so he joined me on this project!
In our home, we constantly debate who cooks best, eh eh!
Here you'll find wholesome healthy meals like our vegan kale salad, delicious treats like our chocolate chip cookies, and fantastic cocktail recipes to serve when you host a party!
We believe life is about balance, and we should always feel happy while eating, even if that means eating a nutritious salad for lunch and a piece of chocolate cake for dessert!
"Simple recipes that are wholesome and worth making"
We aim to inspire you to have fun in your kitchen while cooking wholesome meals with seasonal ingredients that make you feel good!
We're so happy to have you here!
xoxo Rita and Ricardo
