What I have been eating in Portugal

I have been in the sunny Algarve, in the quiet and peaceful Olhos d’Įgua for the last couple of weeks. We have been enjoying the fresh fish and shellfish. Favourites included of course the small fish like sardines but also the clams and langoustined (sorry to disappoint frequent readers, I have just about abstained from lobster this holiday because other shellfish was more plentiful). Last but not least, the wonderful desserts — Portugal has some of the best puddings in the whole of Europe. Like British puddings they mostly include plenty of eggs and sugar. The English custard pies and the Portuguese pasteis de nata are close siblings. Chocolate mousse here is more deliciously gooey than the lighter and airier French variety.

These were some of our favourites.
