Portuguese Alheira: A Garlicky Bread and Game Sausage

“If this was my avó making sausage, she’d string it up in the cellar. I don’t know if she smoked it first, or if it was just dried that way, but her sausage was always amazing!” said my Portuguese husband after a morning of homemade alheira production, which was a first […]

Recipe: Broa de Avintes

Recipe: Portuguese Pasteis de Bacalhau

It’s said that the Portuguese have enough bacalhau (dried salted cod) recipes to create a different dish for every day of the year! Though possibly a touch farfetched, it has heaps of tasty culinary applications.

Outside of Iberia, suckling pig may not have the same level of popularity, but it doesn’t make it any less succulent! Leitão assado or, less frequently, leitão assado à Bairrada originated in Covões, Cantanhede, and is considered one of the richest gastronomic treats of the region, with restaurants all along the entire […]

Recipe: Portuguese Sardine Salad

As the weather warms up in the northeast, we begin to itch with a desire to do outdoorsy activities. Grilling is one of them! But I’ll admit that a whole lot of what seems ideal in my mind has trouble coming together in practice when the day flies by and […]

Recipe: Chargrilled Red Snapper

As grilling season is just around the corner, I can already taste the juicy, sweet flavors of a perfectly grilled red snapper, sardines and bass. The mouthwatering aromas evoke lively memories from massive immigrant get togethers as temperatures climb above freezing. It’s one of my favorite times of the year, in large part, because […]
