Fire and passion are the hallmarks of Portuguese cuisine. The Portuguese are a people who express love, faith and friendship through their cooking. Portions are large, and guests are always welcome at the table. Indulging is encouraged, and if there are leftovers, so much the better; there will be another more ▼
dish to make with them tomorrow. Paprika, bay leaves, garlic and wine feature largely in many dishes, olive oil is adored and used to cook both cook food and finish off dishes. Spices in general are popular – including piri piri(small fiery chilli peppers), black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla, and saffron. Herbs are also widely used, particularly coriander and parsley. Pork is a favourite meat and is used in the famous chourico sausage, which is smoked over wood with heady aromas of garlic and paprika. Portugal has a long coastline and a passion for seafood. So loved is bacalhau now that there are recipe books entirely devoted to it, with a range of recipes from around the country. Although Portugal is smaller than the state of Indiana, it's home to hundreds of native wine grapes. These tours capture the best wines and ports in the country.
