Flavours of Portugal by Tania Gomes

Throughout history, the spirit of Portugal has been carried across oceans through the hearts and minds of thousands of Portuguese scattered around the globe. With them, they took their memories, stories, traditions and unique cooking.

Portuguese cooking evokes sights, smells and tastes of Portugal and, in Flavours of Portugal, you can find all of these elements – recipes, cultural history and memories, as well as beautiful images of life in Portugal now and in the past.

Inspired by her mother’s simple, everyday events, such as baking bread, author Tania Gomes has brought together a mix of traditional Portuguese recipes collected from family and friends. The book is about more than just food, it is about the way the culture is experienced and shared through a meal, with stories of special celebrations and feast food to enjoy.

You’ll find the recipe for the ever-popular Pork with Clams cooked in a cataplana, Fisherman’s Stew, a few tasty bacalhau dishes and, of course, Leite Creme (egg custard) among other, less well-known, Portuguese desserts.

Written in both Portuguese and English, this beautifully photographed book brings the cooking traditions and true flavours of Portugal alive.

Available in large paperback at 26.50 euros, but at the special price of 25 euros for the weekend of the Better Living in Portugal exhibition.
