Taste of Porto Food Tour: get to know the Portuguese cuisine
Portuguese gastronomy has many influences from various countries and these impacts have made the Portuguese cuisine simply delicious. It has many Mediterranean influences with an Atlantic flair, and is especially famous for seafood and salted cod. It is said that when the Portuguese traders went up to Iceland they regularly came back with tons of cod. In order to preserve it they would salt it in caves, like the ones used to age port wine.
Another notable influence in the local cuisine is the colonial past, especially in the wide variety of spices used. These spices include piri piri (small, fiery chili peppers) and black pepper, as well as cinnamon, vanilla and saffron. At the base of Portuguese cuisine is olive oil, used both for cooking and flavoring meals, along with garlic and herbs such as bay leaf and parsley. During this culinary tour you will get to know everything about the rich gastronomic culture, and try some traditional dishes and drinks.
