Born and raised in a small town in S. Miguel a beautiful island in the Azores, where homegrown, freshly caught and personally delivered was part of my daily life. Memories of chickens roaming around my grandmother’s backyard, having a kitchen counter overflowing with fresh fish and seafood, watching my neighbours make goat cheese and wrapping it in leaves was all part of my childhood. Fresh ingredients was all I knew. Fresh Cooked meals was a staple in our house, and meal planning was a must.
Having served Brantford through our family restaurant, Cliffy’s, for the past 25 years and with my passion for health, wellness and food, I proudly introduce you to La Mia Cucina, ‘my kitchen’. In my Cucina I use fresh, fine ingredients (local and organic when ever possible), no refined sugars or salts. I love the smell and flavor of fresh herbs, the simplicity of wholesome ingredients all put together to create dishes that we love and still enjoy a healthy eating lifestyle. Wether you are looking for traditional meals to ketogenic, low carb, vegetarian, paleo we have something the whole family can enjoy.
Come visit our storefront, where you will find a display of weekly specials, ready made soups, pizzas, salads, breads, desserts, all items that our community has come to love.
Food brings everyone together, my fondest memories are always shared amongst family and friends around a dinner table.
Life is meant for living not limiting, so enjoy the foods you love on a wholesome level. That is what La Mia Cucina offers you.
