Food in Portugal

Portugal’s cuisine is known for its rich and varied flavors, with a strong influence from the sea. Fresh seafood is a staple of the country’s culinary scene, and dishes such as grilled fish, cataplanas, bouillabaisses, and other fish and seafood dishes are popular choices.

Meat dishes such as cozido à portuguesa, a mix of meats, vegetables, and sausages, are also highly recommended. Portuguese olive oil is of high quality and is used in many dishes, including the famous cod. Each dish is paired with the right wine, with regions such as Douro, Alentejo, and many others producing excellent table wines.

The country is also known for its cheeses, particularly Queijo da Serra, and sweets, whose origins can be traced back to convents. The famous pastel de nata (custard tart) is a must-try, often enjoyed with coffee.

To end the meal, a toast with Port or Madeira wine, or a sparkling wine produced in Portugal, is a perfect way to celebrate a delicious meal and the country’s talented chefs.
