Cuisines of Portuguese Encounters (Hardback)Cherie Hamilton (author)
Hardback 394 Pages
In the sixteenth century, Portuguese navigators circled the globe, conquering new lands to build one of history's largest empires, and at the same time carrying and introducing crops, food products, and a variety of culinary cultures to all corners of the earth. Fueled by the curiosity of a cultural anthropologist and world traveler, this fascinating collection of 279 recipes is the first cookbook to encompass the entire Portuguese-speaking world and explain how Portugal and its former colonies influenced each other's cooking traditions. The author also explores the impact of the Moors and Sephardic Jews, who added unique contributions to the culinary history of the Portuguese empire.
