GASTRONOMY

The range of cuisine available in the county of Portel is rich and varied. Açorda (a regional speciality whose essential ingredients are water, bread, coriander and garlic) and sopa (often a main course dish) appear in a thousand and one guises. So you find soups made out of alho (garlic), cação (dogfish), beldroegas (purslane), peixe do rio ((freshwater fish), tomato, favas (broad beans) or carne frita (fried meat, this soup is also known as sobrenfusa).

Pork meat is the essential ingredient in many traditional dishes such as the migas (a bread and meat dish), cozido de grão (chickpea stew). The smoked meats and sausages which are compulsory in any dish. Game dishes are also much appreciated.

The olive oil, which as received prizes in many contests, our goat and sheep cheese and our honey are also an important part of our rich gastronomy.

There are also regional sweets which complete our vast selection of irresistible specialities, such as the famous puff pastry cakes, the bolo podre (literally “roten cake”), pupias (cakes made of flour, eggs and lard) and biscuits.
