Let's make aPudim

What is a Pudim?

Pudim is a traditional Brazilian desert made of condensed milk and caramel sauce. It's a flan/pudding like desert sweet and smooth, originated in Portugal. The story tells that this dessert was invented by a monk who did not disclose the recipe even though his recipe was a great success. Many pastry chefs tried to copy it, but nobody could make a condensed milk pudim like him. However, after his death the secret ingredients were revealed: sugar; buds; water and pork fat made Pudim de Priscos the success of Portuguese cuisine.

About this Project


This project is my first attempt on designing a responsive page with CSS and html completely from scratch. With the help of my mentor, Nick Sherman, and my classmates (Andrew, Jo, Laura and Michal), I've worked with columns, grid, flex box and media queries in order to build this page. All the fonts displayed here were design by Plau Design, a foundry and design studio from Brazil to whom I proudly work for. This delicious recipe is curtesy of Gabriel Menezes, my gourmet coworker at Plau. You can check another page I have designed here.
