Following Up: A Few Favorite Finds from Lewis Andrews Lifestyle Store

The Algarve’s boutique department store, Lewis Andrews Lifestyle, is a convenient go-to for Cathy’s family when they spend time at their home in Portugal. Last week we got to know a bit more about the owners of this lifestyle concept. Now let’s see what Cathy has to say about a few of her favorite purchases.

The food on the Algarve is fresh, tasty and simple. Chicken piri-piri, tomato salad, fresh clams with garlic and marinated carrots are just some of the Algarvian cuisine that my children have grown accustomed to. Now, I can bring a taste of that back home to Dubai.

A Year’s Cooking in the Algarve, by Joe Devine, and Purple Carrots,  by Linda Dubbelt and Annelies Reugebrink are two cookbooks highlighting recipes, photos of Portugal and stories of the authors. Happy to say that both books feature in my kitchen in Dubai and Portugal.
