About me

About me

Welcome, my name is Andreia Machado. I am a Portuguese professional chef and author of Dontask4salt, a vegetarian food blog with my favourite recipes, and my personal journey as a food lover.

I developed my chef career working at the Bulgari Hotel in Milan and the Gordon Ramsay Group in London. I’ve learnt how to make Indian food from scratch and it’s my absolute favourite cuisine. As a vegetarian, I’ve found that Indian food has the most diverse and balanced vegetarian dishes options. Making homemade Indian food is easy if you have the right recipes and spices, and much healthier than in restaurants.

I will also post about my quest to find good vegetarian food in London. Write reviews with my personal opinion of the restaurants who deserve a comment. Please send your suggestions also.

There will be drinks pairing suggestion posts from colleagues I had a chance to work within the hospitality business. They are personal suggestions from the people behind the scenes at your restaurant bar and reflect their own preferences and experience expertise only.
Check my youtube channel that features Indian and non Indian recipe videos of my favourite dishes/snacks. You can subscribe here, to keep up to date with the latest recipes.
