``Man dreams and the Work is born``
– Fernando Pessoa
This story begins when destiny wanted the lives of Pedro Gomes and Paulo Veríssimo to intersect and as nothing happens by chance, good and sweet things happened. Both were guided by the dream of making Queijadas and Travesseiros from Sintra, faithful to the traditional and artisanal recipes of yore, which passed from generation to generation, almost untouchable. Our greatest wish is simple, as are the Queijadas and Travesseiros: make your life sweeter. Pedro and Paulo’s legacy is clear: take a little bit of Sintra’s history in your memories and in your bellies.
Founder Paulo Veríssimo
Paulo, a trained economist, with a strong connection to the Sintrense associative movement, with professional experience in the areas of Management, Marketing and Communication, he takes responsibility for creating the Brand, placing it on the map. Paulo breathes projects and causes. Having a sweet tooth is his weak point.
Founder Pedro Gomes
Pedro, Confectioner by profession, with extensive experience in the area, born and raised in Sintra, son of a family linked for several decades to the manufacture of pastries is responsible for creating our delicious Quijadas and Travesseiros. Pedro is our Chef. In Pedro’s veins there is also a passion for sport. His motto is “healthy body, healthy mind”, but with a little sugar.
