Portuguese Recipes, Food and Wine – A recap

Botequim de Mouraria in Evora Portugal

Bom Ano Novo (happy new year) to all!

This blog has now been operational for about a year. I have found that the older posts seem to get buried and hard to find, so I thought a recap of some of 2010s most popular posts would be a good way to start the year! Here are a few recipe, restaurant and wine highlights from the first year of Food and Wine Portugal. Enjoy!

Prawn Acorda – The classic Portuguese recipe for a bread based prawn stew.
