petiscar com estilo


Petiscar Com Estilo (Snacking in Style)

Snack alone or with company; in a hole-in-the-wall or by candlelight; on a paper table cloth or on linen; on the beach or at home. Portugal is definitely a country that knows how to snack. In the spring, the chef recommends toast with chorizo paste and pea foam or mango and strawberries with old-style mustard. The summer calls for light, fresh flavours, such as clams Bulhão Pato style or snails that take on a new life when seasoned with truffle butter. In the autumn José Avillez recommends prawns with plum purée wrapped in smoked bacon, or smoked game sausage with quail’s egg. And, when the cold weather arrives, try marinated partridge or black sausage and vegetable meatballs with apple purée. And why not try the haute cuisine snacks like the blue lobster sashimi with wasabi and soya?

A trilingual (Portuguese, English and Spanish) book, republished in paperback in 2013, that has already sold over 10 000 copies.
