“The Portuguese Travel Cookbook” shows you the Portuguese way of saying “I Love you” through food. 

It won best Culinary Travel Book award in the 2017 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

The book is a journey through the Portugal which is Semper Fidelis to its origins. A country proud of its culinary identity and heritage, where stories about the food, the places, the eateries, the villages, the producers, the fishermen, the farmers and the chefs who dedicate their life and their day to make traditional Portuguese cuisine the everyday wonder that it is.

Our main objective in conceiving, writing and photographing this book is to make you hungry and inspire a future journey to Portugal. To make you dream and imagine how the different dishes must taste like, what are their texture, how are the ingredients cooked and who cooks them.  

We set out to tell the stories behind the people, the places, the villages, the product and the recipes which make Portuguese Food unbelievably unique. Because we believe that the culinary heart of Portugal is away from the big cities, this project focused only on the peripheral Portugal. The Portugal that produces its own vegetables, milk and still cooks the way his grandmother taught him. A culinary Portugal that finds its origins in the nets of the fishermen, in the wood-fired oven, in the hoe of the farmer and in the local eateries not listed in any guide.

Nelson Carvalheiro is a firm believer in cultural identity through gastronomy. He constantly seeks little and intimate details, as he believes they are a destination’s culture in its raw state.

“The Portuguese Travel Cookbook”, his is most recent project in partnership with APTECE. It is his way to pay tribute to the true bastions of Traditional Portuguese Cuisine, who make it their daily mission to give life through food to the greatest form of Portuguese Identity.

He believes this is the greatest asset and beauty of Portugal. A small country in the corner of Europe, still rather unexplored, still raw, still true to its roots…Still proud of its ancestry and its character.

This is the Portugal that he love and whose stories he portrays in the Portuguese Travel Cookbook.
