Overview

The New Portuguese Table: Exciting Flavors from Europe's Western Coast by David Leite

Winner of the IACP 2010 Julia Child Award for First Book

Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Spain, Portugal is today’s hot-spot vacation destination, and world travelers are enthralled by the unique yet familiar cuisine of this country. The New Portuguese Table takes you on a culinary journey into the soul of this fascinating nation and looks at its 11 surprisingly different historical regions, as well as the island of Madeira and the Azores, and their food culture, typical dishes, and wines. This book also showcases Portugal's pantry of go-to ingredients, such as smoked sausages, peppers, cilantro, seafood, olive oil, garlic, beans, tomatoes, and bay leaves—all beloved by Americans and now combined in innovative ways.

In The New Portuguese Table, David Leite provides a contemporary look at the flavorful food of this gastronomic region, sharing both the beloved classics he remembers from cooking at his grandmother’s side, such as Slowly Simmered White Beans and Sausage, as well as modern dishes defining the country today, like Olive Oil–Poached Fresh Cod with Roasted Tomato Sauce. With full-color photographs throughout and a contemporary perspective, The New Portuguese Table is the handbook to the exciting cuisine of Portugal.

I was lucky enough to spend my early childhood living in the Azores. Now even though I was very young and do not remember much about food, I do remember the raw beauty of the country. That raw beauty is reflected in the “New Portuguese Table” by David Leite. David has put together a collection of recipes that focus on the diverse and rich cuisine that is Portugal. In addition, he takes us on a culinary tour of Portugal and includes glimpses into his own discoveries of his rich culinary heritage.

Leite and Correia have captured the ambiance of a visit to Portugal, where food is the centerpiece for communal gatherings. The pictures, the stories, and the food help bring back memories of my visits to the Azores. On my first 6 week visit there when i was 20, i came back 15 pounds heavier than when i left. But with a smile from ear to ear!
