    How to Cook dishes from Portugal


    Portugal Portuguese cuisine is very different from other that of other European countries, reflecting the country's relative isolation in Europe (it is bordered only by Spain) and Portugal's long maritime tradition - with Portuguese explorers bringing back many influences from the New World, Africa, the Far East, and the East Indies - and fish and seafood being a major and important part of the Portuguese diet. Portuguese cuisine is particularly known for salted cod, pork, and its exciting use of spices.

    Some popular Portuguese recipes and dishes include:
    • Bacalhau - Salted cod - there are many different ways that this can be cooked, some say one way for each day of the year, whereas others say over 1,000.

    • Caldeira - A stew consisting of a variety of different types of fish (and sometimes shellfish), together with potatoes, tomato and onion. Spices are sometimes added as well - typically nutmeg and saffron, cloves, allspice, piri-pri, or ground ginger and curry powder, depending on the region.

    • Cozido á portuguesa - A traditional rich meat stew, made with beef and pork (or sometimes chicken), cabbage, carrots, turnips, rice, potatoes and Portuguese smoked sausages.

    • Fish and seafood - In general, as noted previously, thanks to the country's long maritime tradition, a wide variety of fish and shellfish are eaten in Portuguese cuisine. These include crabs, hake, horse mackerel (scad), lamprey, lobster, octopus, sardines (especially when grilled as sardinhas assadas), scabbard. sea bass, shrimp and squid.

    • Pastéis de nata - Small creamy tarts, originally from Lisbon, but now popular throughout Portugal, as well as former Portuguese colonies.

    Product Description:
    With 100 recipes, this is the first book to explore the vibrant food culture of Macau—an east-meets-west melting pot of Chinese, Portuguese, Malaysian, and Indian foodways—as seen through the lens of the cult favorite Chicago restaurant, Fat Rice. 
     
    An hour’s ferry ride from Hong Kong, on the banks of the Pearl River in China, lies Macau—a modern, cosmopolitan city with an unexpected history. For centuries, Macau was one of the world’s greatest trading ports: a Portuguese outpost and crossroads along the spice route, where travelers from Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and mainland China traded resources, culture, and food. The Adventures of Fat Rice is the story of how two Chicago chefs discovered and fell in love with this fascinating and, at least until now, unheralded cuisine. With dishes like Minchi (a classic Macanese meat hash), Po Kok Gai (a Portuguese-influenced chicken curry with chouriço and olives), and Arroz Gordo (if paella and fried rice had a baby), now you, too, can bring the eclectic and wonderfully unique—yet enticingly familiar—flavors of Macau into your own kitchen.

    Product Description:
    Everyone loves Mediterranean food. But few can say what makes the soul-comforting, understated peasant food of Portugal distinct from that of its neighbors. The abundant use of legumes and leafy greens in its hearty soups and stews? The unusual combinations of meat and shellfish? The wine and garlic marinated braises? The easy seafood preparations? Or, perhaps, the luscious, egg-sweet desserts, from light meringue puddings to rich, sweet breads?

    Peppered with a lifetime of anecdotes from a passionate cook's years in a Portuguese culture, Portuguese Homestyle Cooking draws us into an immigrant kitchen where traditional culinary methods were handed down from father to daughter, shared and refined with the help of the family and friends who watched, chopped, and tasted. The recipes in Portuguese Homestyle Cooking are of dishes prepared as they were in Portugal-but with the measurements standardized and perfected and the commonly used ingredients and methods fully explained. Novices and experienced chefs alike will enjoy preparing these savory dishes.
