What we do

Lifestyle Through Food: Your Authentic Portuguese Kitchen

Read a piece by one of Relish Portugal's contributors—artists, makers, chefs, tour operators, educators, writers, podcasters, resource providers, individuals making their way in Portugal; prepare a recipe you found in the 50+ pages of the visually lush magazine; make note of travel and dining recommendations a writer has shared, and you can rest assured, it's the real deal.

Relish Portugal readers learn about Portuguese food and culture from people living it. Some are natives, some are expats, and some have beloved Portuguese ancestry, whether living in Portugal or abroad. And that makes all the difference. It is as authentic as it comes.

Portugal-inspired stories

Sit down with Portuguese-food-loving luminaries and celebrated artisan makers, discover traditional Portuguese towns and tastes, and relish feature stories and interviews in Relish Portugal.


Explore traditional dishes like bacalhau, caldo verde, and piri-piri sauce to Mexican, Thai, and creative cocktails to a chocolate and Port wine pairing from the recipe files of Relish Portugal contributors.

What's inside

Inside every issue of Relish Portugal you'll discover Portugal’s natural wines, a Portuguese language primer for food lovers, local ingredient spotlights, cocktail hour inspiration, and much more.

Our story might be yours too

Why did we start Relish Portugal? A personal need.

As an avid eater and home cook in a foreign land, after founder and publisher Evanne Schmarder arrived in Portugal in 2018 she began to set up her kitchen. On the surface, that seems pretty basic BUT being in a new country with an unfamiliar language, there were challenges. She needed guidance to help her navigate her daily food life. Searching for an English language publication, she came up empty-handed. So she started one.
