Pimentos and Piri Piri by Carla Azevedo

Pimentos and Piri Piri: Portuguese Comfort Cooking
My rating: 5 of 5 spoons


Portuguese is a cuisine I have not had experience with, but this book is perfect to introduce someone to it. The recipes range from very easy to much more complex, and bits of history and information on culture and cooking techniques are included. The photos are gorgeous, though do not expect a photo for every recipe.

Make your own Quejio Fresco, a creamy fresh cheese traditionally spread on cornbread and served as a midday snack, or marinate your own olives. Try a lovely Fresh Tomato and Bread Soup, or the more complex Seafood Stew.

Portuguese Pulled Pork would make a lovely addition to your summer menu as would the Barbecue Chicken and Beef Skewers. Roasted Seasoned Potatoes will make a nice side dish as would Grilled Pineapple and Vegetables with Fresh Mint.

Pimentos & Piri Piri is a beautiful book filled with delightful recipes that will whisk you away to Portugal. Take a trip from the comfort of your own home with a mouthwatering menu from the beautiful country of Portugal.

I received a copy of this book from Whitecap Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
