"Portuguese Homestyle Cooking" by Ana Patuleia Ortins

Everyone loves Mediterranean food, but none is more universally beloved as the soul-comforting, peasant food of Portugal that is so distinct from that of its Mediterranean neighbors. What makes is so special? The abundant use of legumes and leafy greens in its hearty soups and stews? The unusual combinations of meat and shellfish? The wine and garlic marinated braises? The easy seafood preparations? Or, perhaps the luscious, egg-sweet desserts from light meringue puddings to rich sweet breads?

Peppered with a lifetime of anecdotes from a passionate cook's years spent cooking in the Portuguese culture, "Portuguese Homestyle Cooking" draws us into an immigrant kitchen where traditional culinary methods were handed down from mother to daughter, shared and refined with the help of the family and friends who watched, chopped, and tasted. The recipes in "Portuguese Homestyle Cooking" are of dishes prepared as they were in Portugal, but with the measurements standardized and perfected and the commonly used ingredients and methods fully explained. Novices and experienced chefs alike will enjoy preparing these savory dishes.
