This is food is designed to satisfy the appetite and reinforce the bonds of home and family.
Herbs and spices common in Portuguese cooking include: parsley, chilli powder, peri peri, cumin, rosemary, mint, oregano, bay leaf, saffron, fennel, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, pepper, curry powder, nutmeg, paprika, and of course, garlic.
