About Olga D S Lopes

I am a 52-year-old mother, born in Johannesburg, South Africa, of Portuguese parentage. I am part of a large and close-knit family that forms the basis for everything we do. Our family is truly a rainbow melting pot of flavours, a blend of Portuguese, Italian, English and South African cultures living in a spirit of harmony and positively enriched by the experience. So much so, that we are often refereed to as more than a family- a tribe.I have spent most of my adult life working in finance, but have presently taken a sabbatical in order to pursue the creative calling I've yearned to fulfill. I am passionate about cooking and baking, and have really relished this time-out to explore this penchant to my heart's content. It is my hope that one day I may put together a collection of the many recipes I've grown u with, in a treasury book of food. I also travel considerably, which has further revived my desire to venture out of my haven and immerse myself in the diversity of the world. I spend time with my beloved in Doha, Qatar, regularly, and the tranquility I find there has fuelled my creativity and advanced my writing. At present, I truly feel that I'm doing the work I was born to do.show more
