As a team, we write Coentros&Rabanetes, a portuguese blog dedicated to healthy and honest home-made food with a mediterranean twist.
The blog was born out of the need to write down the recipes we cook in our very crammed kitchen. Ondina is a sweet-tooth while Vel is a savoury guy. We love food, travelling, photography, writing and styling which means the blog is our lab to experiment and create. Join us in our culinary adventures, we really hope you like our work and we do appreciate you being there.
We use a Canon 600D with a Canon 18-55/3.5-5.6 lens and a Canon 50/1.8 lens. Lately we also have been using some of our Instagram account photos, taken both with iPad Mini or iPhone 6.

When writing about restaurants, we pay for our meals and never reveal we are doing a review.
All products mentioned are what we use at home. We only advertise what we consider to be relevant for the recipe and for our followers. If you want to send us products for testing or revising, they might not be advertised on the blog unless we consider them appropriate and in accordance with our personal beliefs, as well as appropiate to the blog's content.
Invitations for events, workshops and showcookings are welcome as long as they are reasonable (meaning we will not work for free, unless for charity purposes).
