Silvia Brandi

Silvia Brandi

Silvia Brandi, an architect and a designer by training and at heart, has a mission in life: to create and to transform. Whether transforming traits into buildings, colours and shapes into objects, or food ingredients into flavoursome experiences that awaken the senses. In the end, pots and pans turned out to be her favourite means to communicate and her creative tools of choice.

A native Italian, she moved to Portugal to have a quieter life. Little did she know that her presence in the TV show MasterChef Portugal would completely change her initial plan. House drawings and elevations were left behind for good, being exchanged for marinades, sauces and culinary techniques.

Chef Silvia’s cuisine is inspired by the fusion of traditional Italian cuisine with the Portuguese local produce, and is grounded on research and experimentation and, above all, on respect for the ingredients, for the techniques and for those fortunate enough to taste her creations. For Silvia, cooking is an act of love and sharing, and she prides herself on being a foodie and having found her own path.

In recent years, Silvia Brandi has developed her art, working as a Chef for several culinary publications, as a food stylist and gastronomic consultant. Experiencing Silvia’s creations is a real privilege.
