Meet Nuno Mathias, Consul General in San Francisco
July 24, 2017
This episode was recorded back in September 2016, and Nuno's post as Consul General of Portugal in San Francisco has come to an end after 5 phenomenal years. We will miss him incredibly - his dedication, tireless efforts, creativity and passion to bring so much to the Portuguese community on the West Coast are unmatched and he is leaving one heck of a legacy. We know he'll do great things in New York! Good luck Nuno! Boa Sorte!

We welcomed our first government official on this episode of Our Portuguese Table! We chatted with Nuno Mathias, the Consul-General of Portugal in San Francisco last September. Did you know that the Consulate in San Francisco is one of a handful to have its own mobile app?! Download it here!
We chatted about some of the initiatives Nuno supports like the San Francisco Portuguese Film Festival and A Year in Port. The documentary won an award at the Rhode Island International Film Festival. Nuno has been an active supporter of the different communities here in California, from the Bay Area to San Diego, for the past 5 years.
Nuno is also a foodie who loves to enjoy fresh seafood at places like A Cevicheria (he calls it ADEGA San Jose’s sister restaurant) and Mar do Inferno in Cascais. (We’ll get him to the Azores next!) His favorite childhood dessert is bolo de bolacha (made with Maria cookies, yum)! But Nuno also loves a good burger from Roam Burgers in San Francisco.
Check out this episode and let us know what you think!
Nuno is given a resolution by the California State Assembly
