Welcome to the new SignatureMix concept!
The Horta da Maria team's mission is to help Portuguese families improve the quality of the food they consume, always supported by the philosophy of bringing consumers the best national products, directly from the producers.
Horta da Maria launched the challenge to a group of Nutritionists, to develop some recipes that, together with a selection of products, can be part of these new exclusive baskets, limited to 30 units and fully customized around the proposed recipes.
In each SignatureMix, you can count on several recipe proposals that will be based on the products that make up the basket, these recipes include breakfast, juices, soups, salads, main courses and desserts.
In this way, we help to unleash the creativity of those who better than anyone know how to eat, offering our dear customers the possibility of purchasing pre-selected baskets, with recipes that will help them enjoy even more of these fresh and delicious products.
We are going to introduce the people who, together with Horta da Maria, are giving life to this new initiative:

In her day-to-day she follows a "flexitarian" diet, where she gives priority to foods of plant origin. However, she does not deprive herself of any particular food, being above all in favor of the balance and happiness that good food helps to achieve.
