Praise for PORTO: “More culinary guide than cookbook, [Porto] . . . focuses on the edible history of the region, separated into chapters focusing on Portuguese staples: seafood, cured meats, produce and everything you’ll want to want to eat on your visit.” -The Globe and the Mail “This book is a visual and gustatory hymn to the honest, simple foods of Northern Portugal as well as a portrait of the proud and welcoming vendors of Bolhao Market who sell and cook it. Flipping through its pages, I felt a tremendous sense of saudades-an indescribable longing-for my adopted country.” -David Leite, author of The New Portuguese Table and Notes on a Banana “This book is a wonderful culinary journey through the history of Bolhao Market, the city of Porto, and the little-known wonderful recipes of Northern Portugal. An exploration and delicious education rolled into one, this book is a must have and deserves to be part of one’s Portuguese culinary library. It certainly will be part of mine.” -Ana Patuleia Ortins, author of Portuguese Homestyle Cooking and Authentic Portuguese Cooking
