Lucy Pepper - A British Ex-Pat Who Loves Portugal More than You Do
May 15, 2018
In today’s episode, we chat with Lucy Pepper. No, her name isn’t Portuguese, but guess what, she lives in Portugal and possibly loves Portugal more than some Portuguese people we know! Lucy first visited the Douro Valley as an art student. She tells us of the time she found the note she’d written to herself about moving to Portugal and a few years later it happened!
She is an illustrator and artist by trade but has co-written a few books including How Not to Starve in Portugal and Eat Portugal: The Essential Guide to Portuguese Food as well as being a fellow podcaster. She is host of Pie, a podcast about (Portuguese) food (www.piepodcast.com/) and co-host of Stories of Saudade / Histórias de Portugal de Saudade e Outras Coisas, an English-Portuguese podcast with partner Marco António (www.storiesofsaudade.com/). Angela recently shared her own story of saudade with Lucy and Marco: www.storiesofsaudade.com/14-from-america-with-love.
Angela, Maria & Lucy talk about their favorite Portuguese foods and about the Portuguese old ladies who don’t wanna share their secrets, among other things...
