FARAH's 4th OF JULY RECIPE GUIDE, PORTUGUESE STYLE

FARAH's 4th OF JULY RECIPE GUIDE, PORTUGUESE STYLE

Joana here, Farah's food and wine writer writing to you from my home in Leiria, Portugal to share some versatile recipes form Portugal for your 4th of July BBQ. In Portugal we have a food tradition called "petiscos", which are small plates of food designed to be shared and enjoyed together. Petiscos are all about local food that's easy to make and delicious to eat - so petiscos are a perfect fit for the 4th of July!

The beauty of throwing a Portuguese pestico party is that instead of cooking a big roast for hours, you cook five or six easy different dishes in an hour to be enjoyed around the table with lots of bread and great wine.

To help you prep for the 4th, I'm including some of Farah's tried and tested petiscos and adding a Portuguese classic - piri piri chicken with an Algarve inspired tomato salad.

The Easiest Canned Sardines on Toast, Portuguese Style!

How about a delicious, quick and easy warm weather treat? Something that reminds you of the ocean and is just begging for a glass of vinho on the side. And before you think this will be a hassle, too much work and a ton of dishes to do afterwards, think again because it is the absolute opposite.

QUINTA DO TEDO'S FAMOUS PORTUGUESE PIRI PIRI CHICKEN

A dish that reflects all the Portuguese explorations throughout the world centuries ago, discovering new worlds and bringing back inspiration to create new forms of delicious food.

Piri piri chicken is a classic in Portugal and its roots go all the way back to Africa and its chili peppers, which are the base for the piri piri sauce. This is a dish that celebrates simplicity at the table, like most Portuguese dishes. One of the great parts of it is also that it is a dish to share, it's something you can cook and eat together!

SIMPLE ALGARVE PORTUGUESE SALAD

In Portugal, salad is a side dish and it may change slightly from north to south, coast to inland, but today I'm sharing the Algarve (south of Portugal) version that is just perfect for a BBQ and is delicious with either grilled fish or meat, so you know it will be a winner!

Strawberry Rosé Sorbet

An adults-only frozen treat you’ll want to repeat all spring and summer long! Think rosé. Now think strawberries. Freeze! The best part is that it requires minimal preparation, minimal dishes and only a few steps.
