No In Portuguese

Peixinhos da horta (Little fish of the garden) - Despite the name, this tidbit is made with chunks of cooked green bean wrapped in polme, which is then fried in hot oil. No one knows the origin of the name, but it is believed to be related to its similarity with small fried fish. This is the origin of Japanese tempura dish.

I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I LOVE rice pudding. Not so much the thin, out of-the-can gloop, no, I love the home-made stuff that slowly fills the house with a warm, sugary scent long before it’s ready to eat. So, when Expedia got in touch and asked me to take part …

Molotof com Ovos Moles. Most delicious and dangerous thing! As if Molotof was not sweet enough, let's smother it in egg yolk sweet. There is no end to the Portuguese sweet tooth! A true case of 'over-egging the pudding'. That said, I'd not say no.

Bullfighting was neither invented by the Portuguese or Spanish. It dates back to the Roman Empire and practiced in Lusitania (Roman Portugal), which the Lusitano is named after. Portuguese bullfighting differs in many ways from the Spanish, since it is done on horseback by Cavaleiros and is considered bloodless because no bulls are killed, since it was banned by Queen Mary II of Portugal in 1836. It was used to train horses for combat and showcase early forms of dressage.

No where else can make a sweet bread loaf like my hometown of Fall River, MA. It is a traditional recipe that is known to be brought over from the immigrants of São Miguel.
