The food of Portugal is rich, & has a depth of intensity just like its people.

First Post

So it's 12.30 am in Sydney & I couldn't sleep. So I was viewing one of my favourite blog sites & they were talking about how it was their anniversary & how they got started with their blog. So I thought, hey,I've always wanted to do that, so I gave it a try.And here I am.
So why be a blogger,well it's something I've always wanted to do.
I have around 100 blogs sites I follow. I know it's crazy,but really in my defence I don't follow them every day,just a few a day.
A lot of them are great & very beautiful sites,a great way to express yourself either by the written word, a photogragh or the expression of cooking .
People who love to cook generally are artistic people in some way.

So why Portuguese food,it's because my background is Portuguese, & I am passionate about the food & culture.
I've always loved food & learned to cook at around 7 or 8 years old.
I remember borrowing cookbooks at school & then trying the recipes at home,by the time I left primary school my name was on every cookbook in the library.
I have all these photos of the food I made, not great,some of them look really awful.
This was in the early 80's before it was normal to take photos of food.
So you see I was a blogger in the making.
So I hope you enjoy.

I love your blog!!! I came across it up one night and curious about Portuguese cooking. Thank you so much for making! I am first gen american in my family ( im half Portuguese and half Filipino) and I've not been taught to cook any of these dishes (or anything about that side of my family). I love to cook and your recipes are quite easy to follow (practically fool proof!) and I love all the gorgeous photos and how you talk of the culture. This was such a jewel to find and big help in educating me in my roots! I can't wait to cook all of these!!!
