Portugal has a lot of restaurants with Michelin stars but that’s not what defines the gastronomy in Portugal. The Mediterranean Diet is a way of life and has been considered an Intangible Heritage of Humanity by Unesco. Olive oil, fish (we say that we have 365 kinds of fish one for each day of the year), sea food, wine, vegetables, herbs and fresh seasonal fruits play the leading role in the Mediterranean Diet. Portugal’s Gastronomy separates itself by how it respects, prepares, cooks and shares the local seasonal products the land and sea have to offer. The flavors and aromas are dynamic and vibrant in every village. Intense in flavors, delicate in preparation and always genuine.
