Sit down to eat with the Portuguese and before pudding has arrived, they will be discussing the next meal, their favourite restaurant, or where to find the best cured sausages. Come to Portugal on holiday, however, and you may miss out on all the really interesting food that they're talking about. Deciding what to eat can be quite tough if you don't speak the language. It's often easier to plump for the simple option of something grilled than risk trying something else that might turn out to be some bit of offal you really can't stomach. With the help of this book, you can dare to be bold and be surprised by Portuguese cuisine.
