Discover recipes that have been handed down through the generations and others that are a modern tweak on tradition. Take in the poetry and civility of Portuguese coffee and pastry. Explore seafood, bacalhau, feijoada, arroz de pato, caldo verde, conservas and more. See Portugal's small towns and big cities through a local's eyes. Practice food- and dining-related Portuguese. Get a feel for the real Portugal.

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.

Oh hello Portugal lover! 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.
