As a food blogger (and someone that loves food) there is always this addiction to trying out new things and then it influencing what you make yourself and then go onto sharing with your readers.
Many of you know that we live in Portugal. Well we live in the countryside in our cottage that is based between two small towns. It is in the Algarve and we are just a 20 minute drive to the beach and have a lot of great restaurants around us. We like to embrace the local cultures and eat Portuguese food whenever we can.
We have a favourite café in our local town. They have pizzas and burgers and other things that fit in with what the local tourists want. But they also have a really impressive meal of the day.
It is so cheap that when we leave we examine the bill thinking that there must be some kind of mistake. We will have had a few drinks, a rice or pasta dish, a hot chocolate and then a huge slice of homemade cake. It will cost us about 20€ (approx $22) for the four of us.
One of the dishes that got me really excited recently was what they called a fish stew. From a British point of view we would probably call it a seafood stew and I don’t feel a fish stew really made it sound that good.
But it was good…..well it was absolutely delicious and since then I haven’t seen it on the meal of the day (but wish I had) and this is our version. And we find that in the soup maker it is so much better oh and the flavours are amazing and I just hope that I have done it justice!
