Description du produit

Revue de presse

Startlingly delicious...superb...Ortin's meticulously assembled collection should be widely welcomed...liberally interspersed with words of wisdom from her 'Pai' and classic tidbits of folklore...extremely thorough, addressing not only mainland cooking but Portuguese-American variations and the distinctive styles of the Azores islands...Though often built from just a few ingredients, Ortin's recipes usually yield spectacular results.... Longer more complicated recipes are just as rewarding. --The Boston Globe

Lavishly photographed tribute to the dishes of Portugal...charming anecdotes are interspersed throughout the book. She is an astute observer of details, carefully describing how her ingredients should feel, smell and look, rather than simply listing their quantities. Many of the recipes show off the spectacular flavors of a frugal cuisine...cheap, delicious and easily prepared. More elaborate recipes are lucidly broken down into straightforward, almost foolproof steps. Thorough in scope as well as technique, Ortins covers every imaginable facet of Portuguese cooking...Anyone who has ever enjoyed Portuguese cooking and longed to make it at home will find this an indispensable guide. --Publishers Weekly

There are few good books on Portuguese food, making Ortins's new cookbook especially welcome.... Although the cuisines of Portugal and Spain are often treated together, Portuguese cooking has its own identity, and most libraries will want this work. --Library Journal

For the Portuguese, family, friends and food are inseparable...Ortins introduces readers to what she calls 'the melting pot cuisine of Europe....Portuguese sailors were the first Europeans to develop trade routes and the first to bring back spices and products from other lands.' This book is for [people] of Portuguese descent who never got to watch their mothers cook but want to pass their culture on to their children. --The Boston Herald

Beautiful colour photographs show off such delicious recipes as light and zesty Caldo Verde (Green Broth Soup), hearty Feijoado (Bean and Sausage Stew) and more. --Bookpaper

A work of a Portuguese descendant who uncovered the Portuguese gastronomy in the family and the community from which it was created...Ana Patuleia Ortins created a book of flavors and knowledge...it is not limited to bringing together the traditional recipes of Caldo Verde and Kale Soup...or the codfish pastries and fish stew of Graçiosa. It went further in describing the smoked sausages, legumes, spices...More than a book of Portuguese cooking, it is a book about the homecooking of a Portuguese community in the United States... describing for example the vinaigrette of cousin Evelyn Ortins Cunha or the rice pudding of Isaura Nogeira, the homemade wine of Graçiosian Manuel Silva and his wife Maria, or the sangria of the popular restaurante Atasca owners Joe and Maria Cerqueira in Cambridge...Portuguese Homestyle Cooking is a beautiful book for those interested in Portuguese gastronomy. It is not only cooking with flavor but with love. --Portuguese Times

The mysteries of Portuguese cooking have been unlocked...This is as authentic as you can get this side of the Atlantic. --Lynn Daily (MA)

Authentic Portuguese recipes, prepared as they are in a Portuguese home. --Peabody Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

Everyone loves Mediterranean food. But few can say what makes the soul-comforting, understated peasant food of Portugal distinct from that of its neighbors. The abundant use of legumes and leafy greens in its hearty soups and stews? The unusual combinations of meat and shellfish? The wine and garlic marinated braises? The easy seafood preparations? Or, perhaps, the luscious, egg-sweet desserts, from light meringue puddings to rich, sweet breads?

Peppered with a lifetime of anecdotes from a passionate cook's years in a Portuguese culture, Portuguese Homestyle Cooking draws us into an immigrant kitchen where traditional culinary methods were handed down from father to daughter, shared and refined with the help of the family and friends who watched, chopped, and tasted. The recipes in Portuguese Homestyle Cooking are of dishes prepared as they were in Portugal- but with the measurements standardized and perfected and the commonly used ingredients and methods fully explained. Novices and experienced chefs alike will enjoy preparing these savory dishes.

My father was in the military stationed at Lajes Field Azores, and we really loved the food on that island. Im sure not all the recipes are exactly the same but its nice to have something close enough to bring some nostalgia back from such beautiful and wonderful memories. I really feel in love with the bread there so I bought this in hopes to master a certain type I loved. It didnt turn out as great as I hoped but I know that was due to me and not the recipe. The one bread recipe tried really made me have more appreciation for those who had made the bread on that island, because the recipe is a tedious one but I hope to one day master it because the result of making a replica of that awesome bread would be so worth it. I also am looking forward to trying other dishes as well. So happy I purchased this so that I can keep as close of great memory of my youth alive in my life.

Great recipes and stories with each one! A lot of my grandma's recipes are in this book. And here I always thought she was full of it when she says "it's the Portuguese way".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Portuguese Homestyle Cooking is just that! 11 janvier 2012

My husbands family, on his mother's side, is of Azorean/Portuguese descent. The recipes in this cookbook are so authentic, that we have now bought at least four copies to keep for ourselves and to share with relatives as far spread as Portland, Oregon (we are from the Boston area). My mother-in-law has raved about the majority of recipes and has had only minor criticisms of others (e.g. her mother's rice pudding was thicker). The pictures are wonderful and the actual recipes are clear and easy to follow. I highly recommend this book to actual Portuguese folks and also to the rest of us "wanna-bes".

I discovered this cookbook in my local library - loved it so much, I purchased a copy for myself. My mother was Portuguese, and these recipes help keep her memory alive for me.
