All About Dom Fuas


Welcome to my cantina!

My name is Dom Fuas Roupinho. I am a British Shorthair, born in Spijkenisse, Netherlands.

I was named after a famous Portuguese Templar knight and, from early age, I showed a special talent for cooking and eating.

I am a great admirer of Slow Food and Cucina Povera and make sure nothing is wasted in my kitchen. In spite of being a Cordon Bleu chef I have a very easy going attitude – I do not wear a chef hat because my ears get hot, but I love to cook wearing clogs. Wooden ones.

Choose a table and I will bring you the menu. Enjoy!

    It is my husband’s 60th birthday in August and I wondered whether you would be able to provide a ‘special’ menu for me. His favourite is seafood

  3. Dear Aunt Eveli,

    Your table is booked. Sea view. Candle lit.

    See you tonight.

  4. Dear Bigus Birdus,

    I will be delighted. I presume this is going to be a “dinner for two” event, yes?

    Don’t you worry. I can create a menu full of delicious things, but easy to prepare. Nothing expensive but still absolutely yummy, that’s my speciality, you know. Frugal Chic.

    Will get in touch with you to learn a bit about Mr. Bigus Birdus’ preferences.

  9. Hello,
    Lovely that you have named your cat after a 12th century Portuguese nobleman named Dom Fuas. Lovely because I am a cat lover, a History reader and because I am from Portugal. 🙂 I have adored that! 🙂
    Good luck w/ your cooking (that I also enjoy).
    Mónica V.

  10. Olá. Acho que não venho enganada… é sobre uma girafa que habitava o zoo de Lisboa e nos era trazida por uma Maura que partilhava num diário as suas impressões…? Se não vim enganada, gostava apenas de dizer que recordo com muitas saudades aqueles textos. Obrigada.

    • Miucha, teu comentário ficou perdido aqui e só vi hoje. Sim, sou a mesma Maura do Diário de Lisboa. Fico feliz em saber que gostava dele. 🙂
