The Undiscovered Inland Cuisine of Portugal – Part I

written by Sonia Nolasco | 20th July 2015

The interior of Portugal is, unfortunately, often overlooked. That’s too bad, especially for foodies searching for unique eats beyond the mouthwatering fish and seafood on the coast and the regional dishes that the bustling cities recreate. Granted, I understand that driving into the mountains of Portugal or through windy, ancient villages isn’t as easy as getting around major hubs,...
