Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Spain, Portugal is one of the world's most up-and-coming culinary destinations. David Leite, a three-time James Beard award winner and proprietor of the website LeitesCulinaria.com, has written "The New Portuguese Table" (winner of the 2010 First Book/Julia Child Award), which takes you on a journey in to the soul of this fascinating nation. The book looks at several historical regions, as well as the island of Madeira and the Azores, and their food culture, typical dishes, and wines. Join the author for an exploratory tasting of this unique cuisine, while he shares both the beloved classics he remembers from cooking at his grandmother's side, as well as modern dishes defining the country today.
Admission includes a copy of the book.
