An Anglo- Indian brought up in Kerala and married to a Goan, Chef Crescentia Scolt Fernandes is the founder of the erstwhile Bernardo’s – Delhi/NCR’s oldest dedicated Goan restaurant.
Having worked with the United Nations most of her life, Cres (as she is fondly called), used to love baking and pickling in her free time. Once orders for these started pouring in, she decided to leave behind the comforts of a 9-5 job and take a plunge into the world of food.
With her treasure trove of old family recipes from Goa, she and her husband Chrys set up Bernardo’s, which soon became the go-to place for customers seeking authentic Goan food in NCR. When Bernardo’s restaurant shut down (after an innings of 14 years) she started Crescentia’s Kitchen – bringing to customers her fabulous Goan food, made in her home kitchen.
Apart from her regular weekend menu, Crescentia’s kitchen also caters for small parties, specialising in Goan food.
And from Oct – Mar, you can also reach out for a Buffet-style picnic at their farm Casa Esperanca, where Chrys and Cres, also run the Bernard’s Welfare Trust, a shelter for aged, injured and abandoned animals.
