I'm the worst cook you all can imagine, so I have one of those robots in the kitchen that help me! I do like to do some barbecues in the summer, and that I can do the minimal stuff!

I like traditional Portuguese food, especially from the northern part of Portugal, where I lived for some 13 years. The most traditional foods/dishes/desserts from Portugal include the ones below:

  1. All sorts of "bacalhau", which is cod fish. We say that we have 1001 ways to eat "bacalhau" in Portugal.
  2. Pastel de Nata, probably the most well known dessert in Portugal.
  3. Sardines, grilled or canned, very typical, mainly in the past.
  4. "Cozido ร  Portuguesa", a very meaty, fatty and heavy traditional Portuguese dish...
  5. "Polvo ร  Lagareiro", octopus with lots of olive oil, my favorite ๐Ÿ˜

I must say I love them all!

Antonio Sousa

๐Ÿคฃ Thank you for being honest! As we know robots can really help, not only in the kitchen ๐Ÿ˜‰ :dynatrace: ๐Ÿค–

PS: Would to see some pictures from the barbecue ๐Ÿ˜

Behind every technology, there is a human.

While a robot is of great help, I still don't have a OneAgent to tell me what went wrong in the dish coding ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I can't believe it, but I went through all my photos and haven't gone one of me in the barbecue. Will have to correct this one!

Antonio Sousa

"dish coding" => ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿคฃ

About photos from the barbecue - the season is coming so feel free to add a photo when you will have a new one ๐Ÿ˜‹

Behind every technology, there is a human.

Pastel de Nata reminds me of the tastiest mornings in Portugal ๐Ÿ˜ƒ It's such a perfect combination with a cup of coffee!

I'm not the most adventurous eater, but really have fallen in love wit Thai๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ Food. Never enough time to eat all the thing you want to have, no matter how long the vacation is.


There to many great dishes to name them all. One of my favorites, which is pretty simple, is Moo Tod Gratiem. Crispy fried pork with (looooooots) of garlic and sticky rice.

Had to look for quite a while, most of the time it's  gone before I can even think of taking a photo ๐Ÿ˜‚

Cooking you say? No, the longer I can go is on breakfast, coffee, eggs, smashed bananas with oat and orange juice, does it count?

I really like to eat, and for this post I will choose one that @AntonioSousa may knows too.


There's the recipe if anyone is interested ,

Captura de Tela 2022-03-15 aฬ€s 14.21.04.png

Basically is black beans with pig meat. 

I do not eat the meat, I just like the flavor on it, to eat with rice and farofa (tempered salt flour).

Some people say that making tea counts as cooking ๐Ÿ˜… so... smashed bananas with oats and eggs sounds like a "creme de la creme" ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Ohhh, Feijoada! Should have been on my list too!!!

Antonio Sousa

High five, @dannemca โœ‹ Happy to see a soulmate that really likes to eat ๐Ÿคฃ

I laugh at myself that I usually eat three second breakfasts, a dessert after lunch, and I never refuse to eat a cake ๐Ÿ˜‚ The word "diet" doesn't exist in my dictionary ๐Ÿคฃ

My Wife loves to make her Slovak holiday cookies ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฐ


There are tons more that she makes but I'm limited to 10 attachments lol.


She is the Queen of holiday baking - I know my role: clean dishes, get the ingredients out, keep the work space clean! 1.jpg2.jpg3.jpg4.jpg5.jpg6.jpg7.jpg8.jpg11.jpg


I gain weight from just looking at it ๐Ÿคฃ

What a lovely pack of inspirations for the "cookie of the day" ๐Ÿ˜„

I really love to cook all day every day and just about anything at this stage. My go to meals are spaghetti bolognese, oven baked chicken wings, thai green curry, rendang, dumplings and goulash.  Probably my favorite thing though and also the most recent thing I started to make is homemade ravioli. It's just... so... good... ๐Ÿคค

Above is mushroom ravioli with a creamy bacon/mushroom sauce.



Above is a more recent trial of blue cheese ravioli with a tomato/onion sauce topped with basil.

In the next coming month I will be hungry all the time, I think. ๐Ÿ˜… So many tasty dishes in this challenge that saliva is still flowing ๐Ÿ˜‹

Few shots from me as well. I had to search in my photos for a moment since I don't usually take pictures of the meals I cook. However, I've been able to find one of me baking in a Dynatrace T-Shirt. ๐Ÿ˜
Apart from cooking, I make homemade bread from sourdough for more than 12 years.

I am not a good cook but I can follow recipes most of the time ๐Ÿ˜. I do enjoy all kind of food cuisines,  I am not really big on red meats but some dishes can't be made without! Here are my attempts with a few dishes:

It looks delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹ I can almost smell those buns / homemade bread ๐Ÿ˜

Thank you! so many failed attempts before that ๐Ÿ˜

@Moe_Azuz Can you share the recipe for the bread? ๐Ÿ˜Š

Keep calm and build Community!

Of course ๐Ÿ˜Š. I will try to capture it on video next time.

  • 1 cup of milk
  • half a cup of plain yogurt
  • half a cup of vegetable oil
  • a teaspoon of sugar
  • a tablespoon of baker's yeast
  • 3 and half cups of flour
  • a teaspoon of baking powder
  • a teaspoon of salt

To give it that look you will need to mix one egg yolk with a little bit of milk, then add the sesame and black seeds.



I'll give it a try ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I am not a good cook either, 

however I have so many memories about food especially when I was an entrepreneur, me and my friends struggled a lot to earn for our meals everyday. In that journey, I always was craving Pizzas. Especially pizza from Dominos. I use to save money and convince my friends to get me pizza once every month. Later on it got converted to a habit. 

I am a vegan and a big foodie who love to try every veggie food on this planet. Maybe one day I will. Till date my favourite food is Pizzaaaaaaaa!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Love more, hate less; Technology for all, together we grow.

Big kudos for you Vishruth for sharing this personal food-story, fits perfectly here! By the way... Vegan, you said ๐Ÿค” Sounds like you surely have some favorite dishes that need to be shared here ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Yeah my favourite dishes are wide range of Ice Creams, Pizzas, Cakes etc. Here are some of the pics from my gallery.

@VenkataSainath If you were to rate the spiciness from 1 to 10, how spicy is the dish? ๐Ÿ˜„

I've never been to India, but my husband was traveling there a couple of times and he said that what we eat in Poland can't compare to the original cuisine from India ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Keep calm and build Community!

I have one friend that loves traditional spicy Indian dishes. He once took me to a very special Indian restaurant in Lisbon, from some old fellows that came from Goa. He told me expressly  to go for an "entry" spice plate. Well, since I like spicy food, I went for a medium one. I believe it was a rate of well, 9.

Then, I tried a very small spoon from his dish. I would rate it as 18, in a scale from 1 to 10  ๐Ÿ˜‚ Never imagined there could be something so spicy!!!
