Flavor fans rejoice -- Portuguese food is here! 8 juillet 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Finally a cookbook that not only showcases Portugal without sharing the limelight with Spain, but one that also contains recipes from both the mainland AND the Azores. Ms. Ortins has written a wonderful, useful, and beautiful salute to Portuguese food that will encourage the novice cook and satisfy the advanced cook.
Portuguese are not afraid of flavor, and the author has been true to the flavors that make Portuguese food so fabulous: lots of garlic, onions, peppers, vinegars, etc. My house smells wonderful every time I cook something from this book.
I've made half a dozen dishes from the book already. All turned out very well. Most recipes are easy enough for a novice cook; however, the recipe that gave me the most satisfaction is one I rate as "advanced". (Not that there was anything difficult about it, it just helps if you have cooked enough not to panic at using yeast or when the recipe becomes a "project".)
My spouse is of Portuguese descent and has fond memories of the foods from his childhood. (Watching him go through this book was like watching a kid in a candy shop!) Unfortunately, none of his relatives' recipes were written, and the great-aunt who made them is deceased. For years I tried to duplicate his aunt's Massa Souvada (Portuguese Sweet Bread). I've made dozens of recipes for this bread. Some were awful, some were good. Not one was IT. So, with great interest I read Ms. Ortins' Sweet Bread recipe. It was very different from the others I had tried. My husband kept saying, "This is it!"
I consider myself a capable cook, but I was daunted by the sheer volume and the time involved of this recipe. It makes 5-6 loaves! Still, you have to remember is that sweet bread -- like tamales are in Mexico -- is usually made only for holidays or Holy Days by several women in the neighborhood. This is NOT a "whip one up for dinner" recipe, nor is it meant to be.
An email to the author (who quickly responded and was very gracious) convinced me NOT to cut the recipe. So, we rolled up our sleeves and literally dove into making bread. Warning: if you have never made this bread, it is the STICKIEST dough you can iimagine. Do not panic, just follow the directions. The end result is sublime. This is THE recipe we have been searching for years. I took two loaves to work where they disappeared immediately. The four people I work with who are of Azorian descent pronounced the bread a unqualifed success. One co-worker, born in Sao Miguel, paid the ultimate compliment with "tastes just like my mom's"
That recipe alone is worth the price of this book -- although the Roast Pork with Sweet Red Pepper Paste (very, very easy) is permanently bookmarked as well. I understand that Ms. Ortins is planning a second volume, and I can hardly wait!
Portuguese recipes are very forgiving and amendable, so I'm puzzled by the negative review by the person from MA. I can't imagine what degree of hand-holding they want in a recipe that this book disappointed them. Granted, there aren't any cans to open, so you're going to have to use (gasp!) real ingredients. And there isn't a picture for every step in a recipe, so you're going to have to have confidence in yourself that "coarsely chopped" is not a technical term, and your whole recipe doesn't fall apart if your chop is 3/4 inch instead of 1 inch. Message to MA: Trust me -- food tastes better of you don't stress over it, and cooking is more enjoyable if you relax and enjoy the art instead of obsessing over the science. Recipes are road maps, not dictates.
In cooking, as with most things, a certain amount of common sense is the best tool for the job. Relax, enjoy the experience of preparing real food from real ingredients and learning about the flavor of Portugal. Cook something, then throw open the windows and make the neighbors crazy trying to find the source of the wonderful aromas.

All of the classics well represented... 5 juin 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is the first Portuguese (non-regional) cookbook I've found that was actually written by a Portuguese person! While most people use Jean Anderson's book as a benchmark, I found that the anecdotes and stories surrounding the recipes really hit home for me, a fellow Portuguese-American. What's great about this book is that it includes mostly the essentials, without a lot of unimportant recipes you don't need. If you are just starting to explore the uniqueness of Portuguese cooking, this is a great first step. Especially if you do not live in California or New England where many of these foods can be ordered in Portuguese restaurants or purchased from Portuguese bakeries. It might also be helpful to understand that Portuguese food is mainly "peasant" food (explains all the salt cod), and should not be confused with other trendy Southern European cuisines such as Spanish, French and Italian. It can definitely be an acquired taste!

Obrigado Ana! 29 décembre 2001

I received this cookbook for Christmas from my husband and it was the best gift that I got. These recipes are so close to the ones handed down from my family. This book has clarified some of my family's recipes and made them so much simplier. I now live with my husband and children far from my family and our Portuguese community, this book has brought back many childhood memories. Obrigdo Senhora Ana.

A Novice Cook Finds Success Using This Cookbook 30 mai 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a novice cook, I have found this wonderful book to be very easy to follow. I have successfully followed a number of the recipes within the past month or so and the final dishes have consistently pleased me and my dinner guests! The book has given me confidence in my cooking, and I certainly can't say that about many other cookbooks that I have bought and tried to follow. I have not been hindered by the fact that each recipe doesn't have a photograph associated with it and I find each recipe title to be clearly stated. The index was very clearly organized, and I did not find if difficult at all in determining the type of dish I was preparing. The title of the book, Portuguese Homestyle Cooking, implies that this is authentic Portuguese food. The dishes may take a little more time to prepare than boiling pasta for example, but that is the true beauty of this book. Both novice and experienced cooks are able to successfully create an authentic Portuguese meal without slaving over the stove for hours. There's something to be said for the fact that I have understood the format, recipes, and ingredients, and I'm not even Portuguese. It is very clear by reading the book that a great deal of effort, research, and heart has gone into its creation. I highly recommend this cookbook to cooks of all levels. Enjoy!

I have been doing research on Portuguese cuisine for almost two years with the intent of opening a restaurant. I have purchased close to a dozen books on the subject, but this book is by far the best! It is the most comprehensive book on Portuguese cuisine on the market available today. This book gives you a clear understanding of ingredients, portions (in US measurements!) and methods to prepare the dishes. The mouth watering photos throughout the book show the finished dishes. I am so impressed by this book that I plan to buy a few more for my closest family and friends, especially my mother-in-law who is Greek, she went to Portugal a few years ago and absolutely fell in love with the country and food. Note: I E-mailed the author with a few questions and was pleasantly surprised with a reply the next day!
