Cozinha de Portugal

The Portuguese cuisine is quite hearty with lots of meat and fish. The delicacy highlights of our 3 months residence where Peixe e Arroz (in a restaurant at Sagres), Bahalhau (at Lucios), Cataplana with seafoods (made by Lucio  at the Quinta), Pasteis de Belem (a pure sweet delight with Julia in Belem), Feijao com Arroz (a traditional Monchique dish made up of rice with beans, pork and chestnuts at Charotte Restaurant in Monchique), Piri Piri chicken  and ‘Salami’ cake from the local Pastelaria (as it reminds me so much of my gran who made a very similar cake when I was young). To remember some of the dishes I photographed a German Portuguese Recipe book, sorry for all the ones who cannot read German!
