“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.” SEE YOU SOON! Corinne.
