Full of history, great food and bursting with character, Portugal’s capital is a one of Europe’s most charming cities. In Lisbon, Rebecca Seal shares her favourite recipes, inspired by her travels.
Set on seven hills, Lisbon features world-class beaches, city views and wild forests. And the food is as diverse as the surroundings – from the bars in Bairro Alto to the cafes in Chiado, there’s something for everyone. Try the tasty Roasted octopus with smoked paprika, parsley and lemon, tasty Pork with clams, and the classic Chicken piri piri, all washed down with some homemade Sangria. Rebecca’s sweets are not to be missed, and include a delicate Almond cake, a summery Coconut Brioche, and a decadent Chocolate cake with doce de leite and sweetened cream.
All set to the stunning backdrop of eighteenth century buildings, ornate churches, nostalgic trams and pastel-coloured houses, Lisbon is a major event in cookbook publishing.
