About the Author

My name is Maria Lawton and I was born on the semi-tropical island of Sao Miguel in the village called Rosario de Lagoa, and when I was six my parents and siblings moved permanently to the United States. We settled in southeastern Massachusetts, which has been a huge Portuguese enclave for over a hundred years. The area has a rich history of seafood and farming, and there are fantastic bakeries and butchers and restaurants that prepare dishes in the traditional manner, but what I craved most as an adult were the dishes my mother and grandmother made when I was younger.

We lived in a three-family house in the city of New Bedford, and if my mom wasn't cooking on the first floor I could be sure to go upstairs and find my grandmother baking something on the second floor. My mother didn't like anyone watching her cook, so I often hid behind my grandmother's apron to help her. I have so many great memories of going up and down the stairs to get tastes from their pans, but I didn't appreciate those times until they were well in the past.
