RECIPE BOOK


Gastronomy is a very important part in our culture: we can see and experience a variety of colours, tastes, smells, textures and sounds mixing capriciously and allowing us to feel the taste of our land. Our senses wake up in our childhood and continue learning throughout our lives; part of this learning process is linked to the knowledge of the different products with which we cook our most appreciated recipes. On one hand they allow us to know the places they come from (the country, the coast) or when they are in season (in the summer, in the winter‌). On the other hand, we can get to know the different ways to cook them and therefore to identify where they are elaborated (in the north, in the south‌) Bearing all this in mind, we feel the need to share the work of all our people, anonymous people, from whom we have inherited valuable traditional recipes , which we in turn want to share with our friends wherever they may come from. The recipe book that follows is intended to be used in our homes so that we can feel the warmth of other homes, so different and at the same time so similar to ours. 1

THE PORTUGUESE CUISINE

T

he Portuguese cuisine is characterised by rich, filling and fullflavoured dishes and is closely related to the Mediterranean cuisine. The influence of Portugal's former colonial possessions is also notable, especially in the wide variety of spices used. These spices include piri piri (small, fiery chili peppers) and black pepper, as well as cinnamon, vanilla and saffron. Olive oil is one of the bases of the Portuguese cuisine both for cooking and flavouring meals. Garlic is widely used, as are herbs such as coriander and parsley. There are three main meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Portuguese breakfasts often consist of fresh bread, with butter, ham, cheese or fruit preserves, accompanied with simple milk, coffee with milk, tea or hot chocolate. Sweet pastries are also very popular, as well as breakfast cereal, eaten cold and mixed with milk or yoghurt and fruit. There are usually three courses during lunch and dinner which usually include soup as starter. A common soup is caldo verde with potato, shredded kale, and chunks of chouriรงo sausage, followed by a fish and a meat course. Potatoes and rice are likely to accompany both the meat and fish courses. Among fish recipes, bacalhau (cod) dishes are dominant. The most typical desserts are rice pudding (decorated with cinnamon) and caramel custard, but they also often include a variety of cheeses. The most common varieties are made from cow, sheep or goat's milk. A region known by its real gastronomy, in Oporto and the north of the country the meals are worthy of tasting: the bovine meats, beef and veal, the pork meat and its derivates, the Barroso goats, kids and lambs are all meats of choice, bred in this region. But it also has other celebrity products like game, the most important one being the partridge. The quality regional smoked sausages are abundant: the alheiras, in past times known as jew sausages, the blood sausages and the bucho (a sausage made of several pork meats) are the most

appreciated ones. The pork, accompanied by bread soup or migas (usually made of leftover bread), the cabidela rice made with chicken or rabbit, the cod and the tender and juicy goat are emblematic dishes in the region around Castelo de Paiva.. The wines that go with these dishes are great quality wines and they are made by using the same grape varieties as Port Wines. The region in which Castelo de Paiva is located is known as the region of Vinhos Verdes, with delightful variations. They are characterized by their freshness and by their either citric or tropical character, many times with mineral notes. From the land people in this region can also obtain some fine vegetables like the peas, the potatoes, an assortment of cabbages, etc, which are so profusely used in our recipes. As it is evident in the next few pages, the Portuguese cuisine is indeed varied, delicious and healthy.

THE DUTCH CUISINE

T

oday's typical Dutch kitchen is rather basic, but this wasn't always the case. In the beginning of the 20th century, Dutch girls were sent en masse to housekeeping school where they were taught to cook as economically and fuss- free as possible. Because of this, quite a number of traditional foods were lost. In the past the Dutch relished taking time out for a meal and cooked interesting and exciting dishes as well as a clever and varied use of exotic spices which were introduced to the Netherlands through the Dutch trade with Asia. The Dutch were known to enjoy growing their own fruits and vegetables and wealthier families often had summer homes out in the country complete with self-sufficient gardens. Nowadays, the Dutch cuisine exists of eating sandwiches twice a day with, for example, cheese and one warm meal. But fortunately, today's younger generations are developing more of an interest in cooking and, at the same time, wholeheartedly embrace culinary differences from other countries. This has led to new and exciting twists to Dutch classics such as hutspot, a boiled dish of potatoes and vegetables which often takes the heat for being "tasteless" and "unimaginative". A different way of making hutspot is using white bean and garlic mash, this is a fantastic variation which includes sweet roasted carrots, lightly caramelized onions and not potatoes, but the original ingredient, parsnips.

Africa, Asia, North America and the Caribbean. Indonesia, with its wealth of spices, was considered the jewel in its colonial crown. For this reason, the Dutch wholeheartedly embraced Indonesian food not only in the colony, but back home too. The Indonesian rijsttafel (literally, rice table), a celebratory meal, was a Dutch invention. It consists of rice, spicy sambal paste and dozens of small dishes. Meals like Bami Goreng, Babi Ketjap and Satay frequently feature in Dutch homes, while the Bamischijf (a deep fried snack of noodles in a bread crumb crust) and Patat Sate (Dutch fries with satay sauce) are excellent examples of Indo-Dutch fusion.

Markets The country has to offer a lot of fresh, seasonal vegetables and fruit and you can buy those in the markets. In the markets you can also buy stroopwafels, cookies with syrup inside and eat poffertjes and patatje met.

THE LITHUANIAN CUISINE

M

ost of the dishes that compose the Lithuanian cuisine are made after traditional recipes. The climate and the agriculture are not different from the ones in the other Eastern European countries. Hence, many of the ingredients can be found in the national cuisines of the surrounding countries. The Lithuanian cuisine, however, managed to gain its own identity, after incorporating many influences, in time. The strongest influence comes from Poland, as for many decades the two countries were allies. The alliance resulted in sharing some of the dishes and beverages. Therefore, the Lithuanian versions of pierogi, blini and pączki may resemble of the Polish dishes. The German influence consists in the great number of Potato and Pork dishes. Kugelis represents a pudding made from potatoes while vėdarai is the name given to some sausages which are based on the same ingredient. The Eastern cuisine also affected the cooking style of the Lithuanians and as evidence, čeburekai and kibinai are two dishes very famous in this country. The most important product in Lithuania is the bread made from rye. It replaces the wheat bread and it is known to be healthier. The farms from this country have large areas covered with rye crops. The vegetables also have a great role in the Lithuanian cuisine, and the most frequently vegetables that may appear in a Lithuanian dish are: potatoes, cucumbers, cabbage. The potatoes are boiled, mostly and decorated with dill. The cabbage is utilized in many soup recipes. Also, a dish named balandeliai is based on this vegetable. Beets are very often part of borscht recipes. The dishes made in Lithuania are rarely spicy. Dill and caraway seeds are the most frequently used ingredients for seasoning the foods. Caraway seeds are the most frequently 17

used ingredients for seasoning the foods. The wild berries and the mushrooms are popular ingredients to the Lithuanian cuisine. The most used mushroom type is Boletus, while the wild berries vary from cranberries to bilberries and wild strawberries. The fruits that are used for desserts or for beverages are: pears, apples and plums. These are the most used fruits, as the environment of the country does not permit growing other types. Cottage cheeses have a very important role in the cuisine of Lithuania. The types of cheese that result are diverse, and range from sour or sweet to harder or softer varieties. GREAT LITHUANIAN FOOD TRADITIONS AND FESTIVALS One of the most important and representative traditions for the Lithuanians is named Twelve-dish Christmas Eve supper. The local name for this event is Kūčios. Each of the twelve months of a year is represented by a food. Poppy milk and slizikai are the two most important foods eaten in this occasion. The other dishes are based on fish, peas, and fruits, from which the desserts are made. The main festivals that are planned in Lithuania do not have as main goal the promotion of the national dishes. Most of them are organized in order to support the national folklore, through dance and music. However, this is a good occasion for the tourists to try the traditional food.

THE POLISH CUISINE

I

f you want to try traditional Polish cuisine, stop counting your calories. Typical meals are very hearty and often contain a lot of meat. Just sampling them is enough to discover that they are really delicious and worth putting on a few ounces. Poles boast that their two basic products are bread and sausages.

TYPICAL INGREDIENTS The most typical ingredients used in Polish cuisine are sauerkraut, beetroot, cucumbers (gherkins), sour cream, kohlrabi, mushrooms, sausages and smoked sausage. A meal owes it taste to the herbs and spices used; such as marjoram, dill, caraway seeds, parsley, or pepper. It is also characteristic in its use of various kinds of noodles the most notable of which are “kluski” as well as cereals such as kasha (from the Polish word “kasza”). The most popular desserts are cakes and pastries.

EATING CUSTOMS Traditionally, the main meal is eaten about 2 p.m. or later, and is usually composed of three courses, starting with a soup, such as popular chicken or tomato soup or more festive “barszcz” (beet borscht) or “żurek” (sour rye meal mash), followed, especially in a restaurant by an appetizer of herring (prepared in either cream, oil, or vinegar). Other popular appetizers are various cured meats, vegetables or fish in aspic. The main course is usually meaty including a roast breaded pork. Vegetables, currently replaced by leaf salad, were not long ago most commonly served as "surówka" -

shredded root vegetables with lemon and sugar (carrot, celeriac, beetroot) or sauerkraut (kapusta kiszona). The side dishes are usually boiled potatoes or more traditionally kasza (cereals). Meals often conclude with a dessert such as a poppy seed pastry, or a type of yeast cake.

BREAD Bread and bread rolls makes the Polish cuisine and tradition complete. It has been an essential part of them both for centuries. Today bread remains one of the most important foods in the Polish cuisine. The main ingredient for Polish bread is rye or wheat, Traditional bread has a crunchy crust, is soft but not too soft inside, and has unforgettable aroma. Such bread is made on sourdough which lends it a distinctive taste. It can be stored for a week or so without getting too hard and is not crumbly when cut. In Poland, welcoming with bread and salt is often associated with the traditional hospitality. Poland's culture has always integrated elements from its neighbours. Nowadays the Polish menu is still changing, being influenced by various, sometimes exotic tastes. Apart from traditional restaurants specialized in Polish cooking, restaurants serving Italian, French and Asian food are mushrooming in Poland's cities, as well as vegetarian bars.

THE GREEK CUISINE

G

reek cuisine has a long tradition and its flavours change with the season and its geography. Greek cookery has influences from the different people's cuisine the Greeks have interacted with over the centuries, as evidenced by several types of sweets and cooked foods. Greek gastronomy has recorded a history of around 4,000 years, with especial characteristics based on pure and unique quality goods produced on Greek land. In fact, it was Archestratos who wrote the first cookbook in history (330 B.C.). Ancient Greek cuisine was characterized by its frugality and was founded on the "Mediterranean triad": wheat, olive oil, and wine, with meat being rarely eaten and fish being more common. Basically the traditional diet and method of cooking food in Greece has not changed since the ancient times, the original flavours and ingredients are still used along with the crucial basic ingredient of all Greek olive oil. The Greek food throughout its history and continuing today is for the Greeks a philosophy, they know that what makes a perfect feast is not just the food but also the good company.

Basic ingredients Greek cuisine has four secrets: good quality fresh ingredients, correct use of flavourings (herbs) and spices, the famous Greek olive 39

oil and simplicity.

Olive Oil The most common ingredient in Greek cuisine is olive oil. The oil is used in most forms of cooking as well as in salad dressings and for dipping sauces.

Bread Bread is a traditional staple in the Greek diet. Modern day Greek chefs still include bread, or bread crusting or coating with every meal.

Herbs and Spices Greek cuisine uses some flavorings more often than other Mediterranean cuisines do, namely: oregano, mint, garlic, onion, dill and bay laurel leaves. Other common herbs and spices as basil, thyme and fennel seed are also often used in traditional dishes.

Cheeses A great variety of cheese types are used in Greek cuisine, including Feta, Kasseri, Kefalotyri, Graviera, Anthotyros, Manouri, Metsovone and Mizithra.

Vegatables and Fruits Greek cuisine follows the seasonal fruits and vegetables of the region. Tomatoes, eggplant, green peppers, wild greens, and a variety of beans

are popular seasonal foods.

Fish and Meat Extremely fresh and with a unique taste, Greek fish and seafood constitute a basic part of the Greek diet. Raw, grilled, fried or cooked, Greek fish as well as sea-food (oysters, mussels, urchins, octopuses, squids, shrimps, crayfish and others) are wonderful. Chicken is also eaten regularly, as are game birds such as quail and partridge. Meat doesn't play a prominent role in traditional Greek cuisine. It's usually reserved for festivals and special occasions or used in small amounts as a flavor enhancer. When meat is eaten it's most often sheep or goat. Other meats enjoyed in the Greek culture are pork and beef.

Many restaurants offer their house pikilía (variety) a platter with a smorgasbord of various mezedes that can be served immediately to customers looking for a quick or light meal. Hosts commonly serve mezedes to their guests at informal or impromptu get-togethers as they are easy to prepare on short notice. Krasomezédhes (literally "wine-meze") are mezedes that go well with wine; ouzomezédhes are mezedes that go with ouzo.

Mezés (μεζές) Mezés is a collective name for a variety of small dishes, typically served with wines or anise-flavored liqueurs as ouzo or homemade tsipouro. Meze (plural mezedes) is served in restaurants called mezedopoleía, served to complement drinks, and in similar establishments known as tsipourádika or ouzerí (a type of café that serves drinks such as ouzo or tsipouro). A tavérna (tavern) or estiatório (restaurant) also offers a meze as an orektikó (appetiser). 40

Both cooking and writing are forms of art. So, why not enjoying a chapter or two of the Mexicanwriter Laura EsquĂ­vel while tasting some of these delicious recipes? Laura Esquivel's Like Water For Chocolate tells the story of Tita De La Garza, the youngest daughter in a family living in Mexico at the turn of the twentieth century. The novel, divided into twelve chapters, each marked as a "monthly installment" and thus labeled with the months of the year, make us learn of Tita's struggle to conquer true love and claim her independence. Each installment features a recipe with which each chapter begins. The structure of Like Water For Chocolate is wholly dependent on these recipes, as the main episodes of each chapter generally involve the preparation or consumption of the dishes that these recipes yield. The details of additional secondary recipes are woven throughout the narrative. 50
