Tasty Home-Made Products, Made From Scratch With Love From Our Table To Yours…

It is a well-known fact that everyone can cook a meal to survive. Anyone can try out a recipe in a cookbook or even watch a cooking show on TV. But when cooking becomes an art, you will not only eat with your eyes, your mouth will taste the passion. Lettuce Turnip The Heat is Portuguese fusion food art with passion and taste.


In Portugal, it is tradition for the eldest daughters to learn the family secrets and recipes. Therefore, an accumulated culinary knowledge passed on through generations of chefs and bakers that transcends into this generation, makes it an evolution in flavor.


Helena Dos Santos, the owner and force behind Lettuce Turnip the Heat, loves to cook. Her mom is also involved in the business and adds her magic to the mix. Combined they fuse their Portugueseness into everything they make. Furthermore, they believe in sourcing all produce locally, because local is lekker and community is key.


Currently, several families order meals on a weekly basis and enjoy her home-cooked meals, especially the kids, and that makes her so happy!


What’s for dinner?

There are so many dishes to choose from that it will be impossible to cater to everyone’s personal choice of the day. Therefore, Helena has set menus that change on a weekly basis, thus best to contact Helena for the weekly menu. Or follow her Facebook page.
