    Why Relish Portugal?

    ​It wasn't long after we'd arrived in Portugal that we began to set up our kitchen. That included stocking our pantry. On the surface, that seems pretty basic BUT being in a new country with an unfamiliar language, there were some challenges. When friends came to visit we asked them to bring items that we were having a hard time finding (hello real vanilla extract). But really, how long could that go on? 

    Eventually we began to ask around at our favorite cafes and grocery stores, learning where to find what we were looking for and if not available, what to substitute. We expanded our search and our network grew. So did locals' recommendations for out of the way tabernas, ethnic food ingredient sellers, modern shops, vendors ​offering the freshest fruit, veg, and fish, and more.

    About the Relish Portugal Team

    We're two American expats that took an extended vacation to Europe and "discovered" Portugal. From the abundance of warm, welcoming people to a variety of delicious dishes and drink, traditional culture and a modernizing approach to craft, we fell in love with this remarkable country. But that didn't make daily life any easier. We needed a practical guide to take us off the tourist-track and we think you might, too.
