A look at what makes Bolhão Market so special


This book is a visual and gustatory hymn to the honest, simple foods of Northern Portugal as well as a portrait of the proud and welcoming vendors of Bolhão Market who sell and cook it. Flipping through its pages, I felt a tremendous sense of saudades—an indescribable longing—for my adopted country.

David Leite, author of the award-winning cookbook The New Portuguese Table

This book is a wonderful culinary journey through the history of Bolhão market, the city of Porto and the little known wonderful recipes of Northern Portugal. An exploration and delicious education rolled into one, this book is a must have and deserves to be part of one's Portuguese culinary library. It certainly will be part of mine. 

Ana Patuleia Ortins, author of Portuguese Homestyle Cooking and Authentic Portuguese Cooking

"This is not just an eminently readable and resonant book. It's also an important book, providing keen insight into something essential and timeless. It brings to life these people and this place; a rich culture, and the past, present and future of an indelible part of Portuguese culture."
