My Portuguese Feast is filled with nostalgia and delicious recipes for the everyday to weekend feasting and special-occasions, accompanied by Mimi’s wisdom, personal stories and culinary advice.
Packed with delicious dishes, you’ll find out how to make the best prego rolls, prawn rissoles, classic custard tarts and one of Mimi’s favourite childhood treats, chocolate salami. Recipes are also inspired by Mimi’s travels around the world and will provide many a culinary thrill. These include a very special Argentinian steak, a moreish Mozambican chicken curry and – in true Mimi style – several decadent desserts.
