Food is one of the greatest loves in Portugal and the Portuguese way of life revolves around eating and drinking with friends and family at mealtimes and every chance in-between. Here we indulge your taste buds with the following categories.
From traditional Portuguese cooking to what to do with the produce you get from the garden (or neighbours) to some of the tried and tested favourites. The Portuguese are very traditional about the way they cook but dishes vary greatly from town to town, find your favourite way of cooking Portuguese food.
We will be having contributions from Ana Patuleia Ortins the author of Portuguese Homestyle Cooking (Available from Amazon)
For information and ideas about Portuguese Food and ingredients, and translation in to English.
This could be a whole website on its own, with literally hundreds of different Portuguese grape varieties. Here in Central Portugal we have many good vineyards, we have the Ribatejo Wine Routes that we will be talking about. We also live in between 2 of the finest wine producing areas in Portugal, The Duoro and The Alentejo where many good wines come from and we would be remiss if we did not talk about these areas too. We will have information about boat tours up the Duoro River and visits to some of the big Adegas.
This is already the most comprehensive list of Markets in Portugal, but iIf you cannot find your local market here then please let us know and we will add it.
