Authentic Portuguese Cuisine

    That we don't just eat Piri-Piri Chicken! Shock horror...

 

‘Bacalhau’ is considered our national dish and has been a prominent part of our culinary culture since the 16th century.

During the age of discovery, our sailors salted and dried the fish to make it last longer on their journey home- this technique is still used today to make famous dishes such as our ‘Bacalhau a Lagareiro’.

In fact there are now 365 different ways to cook Bacalhau-one for each day of the year! 

 

There is also a common belief amongst many that the best Octopus originates from Portugal. In fact, Octopus is delightful and surprisingly tender- go on, we Dare you!...
