“I’ve always felt that a map of France or Portugal reads like a menu. The very names of regions can incite ravenous pangs. Each has a signature dish, from Brittany’s butter-crisped crepes topped with a creamy caramel, to the generous boeuf bourguignon accompanied by a Gevrey-Chambertin Burgundy fine wine. Provence bursts with flavorful vegetables gratin or Mediterranean fish soup, as the bounty of the South-West comes alive in the warmth of simmering cassoulet… Portugal is a country of history, art, heritage, traditions and lifestyle featuring 14 UNESCO listed sites such as Sintra, Evora, Porto, Coimbra… but also a superb cuisine and fine wines. Wherever the destination you’ll indulge in, you will meet the country chefs, farmers and home cooks who are so proud to keep the traditions alive.”
