In this book, chef George Mendes takes us with him to Portugal: He travels the small Iberian country to visit family, to investigate the origins of favorite dishes and to understand the village where his parents lived before he was born. Mendes grew up in Connecticut, but Portugal was always present on the dinner table. Now the chef at New York City's Aldea, Mendes includes recipes for both the simple recipes of his childhood, like salt cod fritters, and the modernist dishes that he makes at the restaurant.
