Our plates are made by Portugal's Vista Alegre, one of the world's most prestigious Porcelain producers. 🍽 Founded in 1824, this incredible company produces around 10 million pieces a year, all hand-painted with the same care and attention that brought it to fame in the early 19th Century.
The sun might have stopped shining, but you can still escape to Portugal at @BarDouro. ☀️ 📷: @the.geographer
@JoaoCura's Pigs Head Terrine w/ Pickles + Apples. 🐽 On the menu for one night only, as @AlmejaPorto join us for the #BDGuestChefSeries, Tuesday 12th March. We asked Joao how he defined his style of cooking: “Seasonal, technical and produce oriented. As local as we can be without comprising on flavour or quality, and as supportive as we can be of our history and heritage.” 🇵🇹 . . Ticket enquiries via the #LinkInBio
Igreja Santo Ildefonso. 💙 Another glistening jewel in Porto's crown, this incredible building, with its baroque facade, was found in ruins in the 18th Century and rebuilt to its current glory. 📸: @situazioni
Next up in the #BDGuestChefSeries is the brilliant João Cura from the renowned @AlmejaPorto. João honed his skills in Michelin starred restaurants across Europe, yet considers the humble grain of rice his most influential ingredient. 🍚 'Rice is such a universal ingredient...crossing ethnicity, race, religion and socioeconomic status. Since I began cooking, I've found amazing pleasure in bringing out the best in rice dishes.' This is one such dish: Carolino Rice from Mondego w/ Cockles + Seaweed. ☝️
Game season is coming to a close. 🍗 Catch it while you can!

The @Conceito_Wines are truly special, representing Portugal’s unique terroir and Rita Marques hands-off approach. 🇵🇹 The young winemaker says it has become “more about best grapes than best wines,” which means “less extraction, more persistence, lightness and focus than before.”
