Introduction to Portuguese Cuisine

World Culinary Arts: Portugal is the 16th installment of the World Culinary Arts documentary series. This series explores the internationally-celebrated restaurants, markets, and kitchens of Lisbon and Porto. Join us on this culinary tour of Portugal, from Porto’s rocky coast where we sample the region’s bounty of seafood at Casa de Chá da Boa Nova, to Marisqueira Cervejaria Ramiro, Lisbon’s famous seafood eatery where we sample barnacles, shrimp, prawns, and spider crab. The program explores how Chef George Mendes of Michelin-starred restaurant, Aldea in New York City has brought Portuguese traditions to his menu. We also visit butcher Rodrigo Duarte as he shows us how to make traditional Portuguese chorizo at his shop Caseiro e Bom, in Newark, New Jersey.
