What is it about summer, that you like most?
Sandals! I love wearing sandals.
Where did you spend summer vacations, when you were a child. What are your favourite memories of that time?
I spent many of my summer vacations in Madeira Island, a Portuguese island in the coast of Morocco where my mother's family lives. One of the memories I treasure most is drinking Clementine tea made by my grandmother every night before going to sleep - we would pick the leaves every night and the tea would always be accompanied by the village's baker special cookies!
If you could only read one book all summer long, what book would it be?
I could read Fernando Pessoa and his poetry not only for a whole summer but for a whole life!
Could you share a recipe of one of your favourite summer dishes?
My favourite dish to eat in the summer is grilled fish. Simply barbecue the whole fish adding only sea salt. After it's done drizzle it with olive oil - it's so simple but it captures beautifully the taste of the sea. To go with it just make a simple tomato salad with dried oregano or roast some peppers and make a salad with them. It doesn't get more simple that this!
What is you favourite DIY summer project?
My favorite DYI summer project is my garden - I love spending time watering my plants, looking at them, watching them grow... and yes sometimes I also talk to them!
