Matthew Reed--They come in waves, walking across the parking lot in tennis shoes and jeans, with gloves swinging from their jacket zippers. They arrive in cars with out-of-state license plates and in coach buses with drivers announcing the 4:30 departure time to every third passenger. They bring reluctant families and crying children, and high expectations. They bring sack lunches and stuff tote bags under tables.

How did a Portuguese chef land in Los Angeles? 
"All my family is in Portugal, I was the only one that came out here, pretty bold and scary but I had a dream and so I did. I came here in 1989 from London where I was studying dance. I came here to perfect the style of dance I was passionate about – jazz and hip-hop – popular in the US and then [my plans were] to return to Portugal to open my own dance studio.
I began working while I was here, performing in several dance videos, shows and later became involved in a singing group, The Skeme, where I was a singer and dancer. After years of doing several facets of dance and music, went to music school and became a music engineer but I decided soon that I was not happy doing that. I still love to dance and I still go to classes for fun and music is still very much in my heart.
Natas was something I decided to do because it was a unique idea and something that I knew I could do. I always loved to cook and entertain and be creative in the kitchen, so I felt a strong passion there."
By Millicent Borges Accardi, Contributor (*) For Portuguese food, Los Angeles, California – known for museums, theater, commerce and, sporting events – was a vast wasteland until 2005 when Lisbon-born Fátima Marques opened ‘Natas Pastries’ café. Originally a bakery, the café was expanded in 2010 to a full service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. […]

"It appears that Kevin and Bean don’t necessarily think too much of their listeners — or at least their listeners’ intelligence.. . .the entire world knows May was far more than traffic. She was indeed an integral part of the program. . . May has been with the show almost since its inception back in 1990. She’s funny, intelligent and a perfect partner for Kevin and Bean."

A: Ever since I was a little girl, my favorite dessert was always Rice Pudding!! My mom would only make it for special occasions. But for our birthdays, she would make or bake whatever the birthday person wanted. For the rest of my siblings they would want a special cake…. but I always wanted sweet rice. So I always felt extra special on my birthday knowing we were all having some rice pudding for dessert that evening!! To this day, I will pass on a slice of cake for Arroz Doce…http://portuguese-american-journal.com/maria-lawton-the-azorean-green-bean-speaks-of-food-and-heritage-interview/
