Pimentos and Piri Piri: Portuguese Comfort Cooking (Paperback)

Pimentos and Piri Piri: Portuguese Comfort Cooking By Carla Azevedo Cover Image


Hearty, filling and flavorful: these are the words that are most often used to describe the cuisine of Portugal. Created and developed, as it originally was, to sustain farm workers and other laborers through their long days, Portuguese fare is rooted firmly in the tradition of peasant food that is fresh, simple, and easy to prepare. Food journalist and teacher Carla Azevedo pays tribute to that tradition in the unique cookbook, Pimentos and Piri Piri.

This book features 330 recipes for a wide range of dishes: appetizers, snacks, soups, seafood and fish, poultry and game, beef, lamb and pork, vegetables and rice, sauces and breads and desserts, and is complimented with a comprehensive introduction, "Essentials of Portuguese Cuisine," along with detailed glossaries of cooking techniques, ingredients and utensils.
