I've personally used several of the recipes, and they are authentic, yummy, and easy to follow.
I also like that she has recipes from all the regions of Portugal (like having a recipe book with recipes from each state of U.S.A).

Although I have the original hard-cover edition - purchased in 1986 - I continue to give this wonderful book as a gift to friends and family who enjoy Portuguese food. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Amazon Customer

Great item with lot of information regarding Portugal traditions and gastronomy.
Excellent condition and lots of recipes to enjoy in standard measures (pounds and ounces).
Anderson's book is more than a cookbook. Her essays sprinkled into the recipes are as tasty as the recipes she leads you through, step by step. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Elizabeth Varadan
