Hosted by Maria Lawton, the Azorean Greenbean, and Angela Simoes, a community leader in California, this podcast is meant to bring awareness and discussion about Portuguese food, culture and what it means to be Portuguese no matter where you live.
Published every other Monday, the Our Portuguese Table podcast will feature interviews with Portuguese chefs, restaurant owners and other community leaders to raise awareness of everything from how to cook delicious Portuguese foods to what it’s like to be Portuguese to the success of so many of our fellow Portuguese.

Angela and Maria Bitch About Quarantine
In this episode, Maria and Angela just spend time catching up and bitch about dealing with the COVID-19 quarantine. Join in on the laughs and let us know what you think!
Worrying is a Portuguese national past time
This is a unique episode in that our guest is Dr. Darlene Sousa and we talk about some of the more "taboo" topics in our community such as some of the anxiety and worry that plagues so many in our community, but we never talk about it. This is the first of many episodes where we talk about some of the social and relationship challenges we face.
If you'd like to reach out to Dr. Sousa, you can reach her at:
Let's Get Started Again
Maria and Angela are back in action recording new episodes.
It's all about the cake!
NOTE: This episode was recorded in early 2018
It’s our 50th episode! And to think that we met doing a webinar and now it’s been 2 years! Maria and Angela discuss what they’ve been up to – from holiday gatherings to cooking classes with Jeremiah. If you haven’t listened to Jeremiah’s podcast, listen here: https://soundcloud.com/our-portuguese-table/jeremiah-the-great-portuguese-american-baker
We also chat about some of the experimenting we’ve been doing with food – Alheira meatballs and Portuguese mac n’cheese. Maria’s Portuguese Table has been doing well – Maria’s been receiving calls from PBS all over the U.S., including Hawaii! Contact your local PBS station to request them to air Maria’s Portuguese Table!

Thank you ladies for all of your wonderful content & kindness, honesty!
If you are a foodie and Portuguese then this podcast is made for you! Really fills a void for the Portuguese culture experience that I and many other Portuguese Americans feel who do not live in Portuguese communities. When I first learned of the podcast, I loved it so much, I binge listened to the first 5 shows. I love the variety of people you interview and especially love to hear what part of Portugal they came from and all your fun foodie questions that you ask each guest. I look forward to every new show and hope you can continue the monthly schedule you had before. Thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart!
Hi ladies! I really enjoy listening to you and wish these were on a regular basis but this year has been hard. I’m first generation and I can relate to everything you discuss. I am also trying to break the cycle with my kids. It is very hard at times dealing with elders that have been here for 45 years but still think the “old” way. XOXO
