“…very well done… I will do what I can to celebrate this book for its great traditional recipes.” —Emeril Lagasse
Cuisines of Portuguese Encounters is one of the first cookbooks to encompass the entire Portuguese-speaking world! Enriched by over 70 new recipes, the expanded edition is a fascinating collection of 279 authentic recipes that illustrate how Portugal and its former colonies influenced each other’s culinary traditions.
This appetizing volume is rearranged geographically, containing staples from Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East Timor, Goa, Guinea-Bissau, Macao, Malacca, and more. Each chapter is a mini-cookbook of a particular country or region, complete with introduction to the cuisine, culinary history, and recipes.
From famous dishes like spicy pork vindaloo from Goa, the classic bacalhau of Portugal, and all varieties of feijoada, to lesser-known coconut pudding from East Timor, this cookbook has something for every adventurous gastronome. The 8-page section of color photographs brings the recipes to life!
