Publishers Text

In this groundbreaking cookbook, Lisbon native and internationally renowned chef Nuno Mendes reveals the alluring food of one of the great undiscovered culinary centers of Europe.

Sharing recipes inspired by the dishes that he grew up eating, Mendes takes you to his beloved Lisbon, revealing the secrets for re-creating the city's most vibrant dishes. Via evocative essays and luminous photography, Mendes gives recipes for delicious bolas de Berlim (fluffy doughnuts often sold on the beach), sizzling squid with coriander, and roasted orange-rub pork belly with fennel. This is a heart-warming and intimate look at a city with a modern, bustling food scene that is nevertheless steeped in centuries-old traditions. Mendes's portraits of Lisbon's idiosyncrasies are threaded throughout the pages: impromptu sardine grills, endless snacking, and city-wide street carnivals. With gorgeous location photography, this book will bring to life Portugal's magnificent capital city and its fabulous cuisine.
