Between February 10 and 12, the region’s reigning fruit will be highlighted on local restaurants’ menus.
The city of Silves is hosting the seventh edition of the “Fim de Semana com Sabor a Laranja” (Orange Flavoured Weekend).
In order to participate, restaurants in Silves must present a dish made with orange on the days the event takes place. They will also have to include at least one drink produced in the municipality (wine or beer made in the Silves Municipality) on their menu and a dessert made with the citrus fruit.
The three days will be entirely dedicated to gastronomy made using the queen of the orchard, highlighting the unique quality of oranges and other citrus fruits produced in the municipality of Silves, recognised for their sweetness, extra juiciness and exceptionally delicate aromas.
With the Orange Flavoured Weekend, the Municipality of Silves aims to attract visitors and encourage the consumption of this juicy fruit.
