Gastronomy and Wines in Portugal

Portugal has a gastronomy that is as rich and varied as its landscape and heritage. With its extensive coastal strip, it is impossible to find a restaurant by the sea that does not offer its diners tasty dishes of fresh fish or delicious seafood. The sea can also serve as your inspiration for discovering some of the 1001 recipes for the preparation of dishes based on “bacalhau”, the dried salted cod that is so loved by the Portuguese. Nor can you afford to miss sampling the famous “cozido à portuguesa”, a succulent dish combining meat and vegetables.
