Bacalhau is a salted cod dish that is a national obsession, it can be prepared in many different ways, from grilled to baked, canned, or fried. Porco Preto, also known as “black pork,” is a Portuguese cured ham that comes from the same breed of pig as the jamón Iberico from Spain. Originating from Porto, the famous Francesinha Sandwich is made with bread, ham, linguiça, fresh sausage, and roasted meat, covered with melted cheese and spiced tomato, and beer sauce. For dessert, you won’t want to miss the Pastéis de Nata, a Portuguese egg custard tart dusted with cinnamon that can be found in every pastry shop, typically alongside a small, strong cup of bica (Portuguese coffee). Portugal has 11 officially recognized wine regions. The most famous are Minho (white), Douro Valley (red), and Porto (fortified).
