Portuguese Homestyle Cooking Cookbook

Everyone loves Mediterranean food. But how many of us are familiar with genuine Portuguese cooking, a melange of Mediterranean, mountain, and Atlantic coast influences? 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 casseroles. The simple seafood preparations. Luscious egg-sweet desserts. Fresh herb bread. It’s all part of the rich and tasty tapestry that Ana Ortins, a passionate Portuguese cook, dishes up in this opulent volume.
