Rick Stein continues his guide to long weekends, presenting a collection of city breaks in fabulous locations for lovers of good food and wine. As before, he’ll be showing people where to look and what to eat and drink in a city they’ve dropped in on for only a few days.
This week Rick visits Lisbon on the banks of the River Tagus, a city in love with its seafood and possibly the best custard tarts in the world. The culinary effects of Portugal’s historic explorations are still seen in its dishes with hints of cinnamon and freshly chopped coriander from the east and tomatoes and chillies from the Americas. With seafood at the forefront of his mind, he makes sure he arrives just in time for Lisbon’s famous St Anthony’s Day Parade and Sardine Festival.
He is inspired to cook the city's favourite snack, Salt Cod Fritters, delicious Almond Tart - a legacy from the Moors - and Pork with Clams, a favourite dish throughout Portugal. With seafood at the forefront of his mind, he makes sure he arrives just in time for Lisbon’s famous St Anthony’s Day Parade and Sardine Festival.
