Patrícia Gabriel is a creative and enthusiastic chef based in Lisbon since 2010.

She loves to cook with unique ingredients found in authentic shops here, and is always looking for the stories and history behind them. In addition to her work with Context, Patrícia offers tailor-made workshops, private chef services and develops menus for special events.
Pedro is a food expert and blogger with an MA in Gastronomical Sciences from the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, where his thesis focused on the Gastronomy of the city. A life long "lisboeta" he is very much enamoured with his home town, especially its gastronomy, history and architecture. Not only has he studied the cuisine and its different influences and variations, but he previously trained as a Civil Engineer, spending several years working for the city council renovating the historical quarters. In the process, he gained a deep knowledge of some of Lisbon's most characteristic areas which he loves to share with others.
Shivam is Portuguese chef that has mainly worked with Japanese food in different places around the world. His passion for Japanese culture began at a quite young age and grew stronger after a decade of training in martial arts and 3 month's intensive study in Japan. Most of his travels always ended up in Asia where he spent a great deal of time in India learning local cuisine, yoga and the meaning of life. He has a large family in Hong Kong where he is always happy to return to so that he can enjoy dim sum and other local delicacies. He is fascinated with how Lisbon is becoming a cosmopolitan city so rapidly and the way in which food has changed as a consequence. Since 2012, he relocated to Alentejo where he co - runs a yoga retreat centre in the countryside. Currently, he divides his time between there and Lisbon, a city he feels proud to call home.
