Portuguese cuisine being full-bodied, generous and filling is essentially natural with roots firmly based in home cooking and pure country dishes. There are no complicated techniques.  The small fiery chilly known as piri piri along with use of pepper, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, bell peppers, chilies, potatoes, kidney beans, tomatoes etc. is liberally used along with Olive Oil, Vinegar, and Wine as additions to add flavors. Garlic is part of almost all the dishes so also are herbs.

Rita’s Gourmet offers a wide variety of Portuguese recipes to learn and prepare and inspire the inner chef in every individual.
