Portugal, Its Food, and Writing A Cookbook

Maia, Azores

In this interview, which first aired on October 30, 2010, Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of the popular radio program The Splendid Table, interviews me about the state of cuisine in Portugal, the reasons why its foods aren’t as well know as neighboring countries (hint: Spain), and discusses the epitome of Portuguese seasoning: massa de pimentão. I share her my own version–which many of my Portuguese friends and family call “Portugal in a jar.” I call it Amped-Up Red Pepper Paste.
