Portuguese Cooking: The Traditional Cuisine of Portugal by Carol Robertson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Portuguese Cooking" is a combination of travel journal and cookbook that celebrates the food of Portugal. Carol Robertson shares her fascination with the country and its cuisine in lively journal entries and delightful drawings, while David Robertson's evocative photographs provide a look at the wonders of the Portuguese landscape and culture. The first half of the book includes descriptions of each region and the people encountered by the Robertsons. The second half is a wonderfully stylish cookbook that includes such classics as chicken braised in red wine, bacalhau (codfish) fritters, tomato acorda, and pudim dlan, as well as regional favourites.The result is a personal travel book for lovers of good food. Portugal is blessed with a flavorful and complex cuisine that brings together influences from Europe, Africa, and the Muslim world. The simple-to-prepare dishes rely on pork and seafood of all kinds, as well as tomatoes, olives, kale, hot and sweet peppers, garlic, mint, and virgin olive oil. The book concludes with a primer on ports, Madeiras, and other wines of Portugal.
