with Caprial Pence
PORTGUAL ON A PLATTER
Portugal is a food and wine lover’s dream. From the crisp light vinho verdes to the dark rich ports and from the cured ham to the egg based dessert, arroz doce, Portugese dishes up gastronomic pleasure in abundance.
A local guide will fill our brains with historic, religious, geographical, cultural and culinary facts and figures. Our celebrity chef, Caprial Pence will share in the merry making.
Our first course is served up in the duck rice and codfish of Guimaraes, we continue on to the seasoned pork of Ponte de Lima’s rojoes. The menu continues with compliments of the Douro Valley and the rich ports of Porto. Obidos adds the roasted goat and Evora has bragging rights with its bread. Lisbon is the icing on the cake where sipping pastéis de Belém with a coffee is almost an act of worship.
This is our sixth venture with Caprial. These trips fill quickly with a small group of fun loving, wine drinking, foodies who love to travel. Portugal will be no exception. We are destined for a fast sellout.
