Jessica Carreira, co-owner and pastry chef at Michelin star Portuguese restaurant Adega, for the cover of last month's @nobhillgazette Peninsula. On this shoot I've learned that San Jose has the largest immigrant Portuguese population on the West Coast, and the second-largest in the US. I also learned about the challenges of being taken seriously in the industry as a woman restaurant owner. Thank you Matt Petty for the assignment! And very grateful to my wonderful friend and house guest from Romania @vitaliebrega, who was visiting the United States for the first time in his life, and sacrificed a day from his trip to help me out on this job.
