Portugal’s rich and vibrant culture is undeniably felt in its cuisine. Portuguese dishes are never shy. Each dish proudly presents itself with fresh, robust, and surprising flavors. There is something both comforting and celebratory about Portuguese dishes. Hearty soups and stews are warm and nourishing. With olive oil, one must be extravagant; with meat, nothing is to be put to waste. Desserts are divine, their flavors and preparation seeming to resound with good times and happy memories. Traditional recipes have mostly been passed down from mothers to daughters, with no measurements. The Portuguese are innovative and creative people, and their recipes and methods vary from family to family and from region to region. What one family may consider authentic may seem foreign to another. With that in mind, the recipes in this cookbook do not claim to be authentic. They are here to give you at least a glimpse of Portugal’s gastronomy, to let you taste the flavors dear to its people, and to feel its rustic charms. In this collection of classic Portuguese recipes, it is hoped that you will experience the passion and simplicity of Portuguese cooking. Something as simple as using real Portuguese olive oil, sea salt, coarse-ground pepper, and only the freshest ingredients will help you understand why Portuguese food is considered some of the best in the world.
