2010 has been a busy year so far for the Adegga Team! And because of this, our blog has been quiet lately from the lack of time we’ve had to post on it. But now, help is on the way!
Therefore, we’d like to welcome Andrea to the Adegga community as our new ghost writer.
For those of you who are not familiar with Andrea, she comes to us from the United States, growing up in Alexandria, VA, just ten minutes outside of Washington, DC. She’s been living in Lisbon, Portugal now for the past two years and has been a contributor for Catavino.net on Portuguese food and beverage for most of that time. Educated at The Culinary Institute of America, she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Business as well as an Introductory Certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers in 2004. Before moving to Portugal, Andrea had been working in the food and beverage industry for almost ten years with experience in just about every position in restaurants and hotels. She currently teaches Business English to professionals in Lisbon but in her free time and for her work in Catavino, she continues to research and study Portuguese wine and wine in general as well as the gastronomy culture of Portugal.
We hope then that you will continue to enjoy our Adegga Blog posts through the words of Andrea and her own stylistic touch that she will bring to them!
