Wine and Dine

Wine and Dine

As you’d rightly expect, Portugal’s cuisine is a traditional feast of sun-ripened fresh vegetables and catch of the day fish. Meat features in the form of rich stews and casseroles. Salted cod is a bit of a delicacy, but it can be an acquired taste! For something out of this world, seek out a wild boar ragu or a hunk of crisp spit-roasted pig. Sardines fresh from the fishermen’s nets are another highlight.

Portugal also makes a wide variety of wine, as well as the famous Port and Madeira. It’d be rude not to sample a glass of each of these, but you should also sup a bottle or two of some local Portuguese wines. Reds from the Douro and Dão regions, and whites from Alentejo and Minho and particularly worth looking out for. Local beers include Super Bock and Sagres.
