"Readers of Ortin’s first cookbook, Portuguese Homestyle Cooking, bombarded her with requests for favorite dishes, and she obliges them in this outstanding sequel. Eschewing the usual selection of breakfast recipes and appetizers, Ortins doesn’t mess around, opening with a series of meat-based dishes (pork stew with cinnamon, wine, and garlic; Madeiran wine and garlic beef kabobs; roast suckling pig). She moves on to seafood, highlighting salt cod and octopus as well as soups, appetizers, and a number of breads and desserts. Artfully mixing the simple (sardine filets with garlic and lemon) with the complex (that suckling pig’s going to take some work), Ortins also takes time to include inventive riffs, such as the Portuguese croque madame that incorporates linguica sausage and beef, pork, or chicken, and a chocolate salami roll, a truffle-like dessert that uses crushed Bolacha Maria cookies to mimic the specks of fat studding traditional sausage. Though readers may struggle to find some of Ortin’s ingredients, which can be very specific at times, substitutions are offered. Readers interested in expanding their repertoires would do well to consider this terrific compilation and will likely find themselves in search of its predecessor if it isn’t already in their library."--Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“Anyone who has ever enjoyed Portuguese cooking and longed to make it at home will find this an indispensable guide.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Authentic Portuguese Cooking is an exceptionally appealing and comprehensive collection of recipes. Even if you're new to Portuguese cuisine, the recipes are easy to follow. The directions for the contemporary kitchen, along with notes on the cultural traditions of the dishes, provide us with a unique combination of both current and old-world Portuguese cooking. A must-have cookbook!” ―Jacky Ankeles, WNBP Radio
“Ana's newest cookbook, Authentic Portuguese Cooking, goes deeper into the little known favorites of Portuguese home cooking. This book is a must for anyone looking for delicious Portuguese recipes with easy-to-follow instructions.” ―Fel Medeiros, Portuguesedishes.com
“Ana is the real deal when it comes to Portuguese cooking. The recipes in her book are authentic, and I love that she gives you a story behind some of the recipes, which makes them special and memorable. She makes ingredients that might be unfamiliar to some, like octopus and salt cod, very approachable. I consider Ana's books prized possessions.” ―Lynn Viera, How2Heroes

There seems to be a large number of Azorian influenced recipes most likely because most Portuguese-Americans can trace their ancestry back to those Atlantic Isles.
For those who expressed alarm over the frequent use of saffron in the recipes, be comforted that ex-pats here use "assafroa" safflower tendrils or powder in its stead.
All in all, it's a nice representation of tasty food which can well up memories for those who neglected to jot down grandma's recipes.
this cookbook is an amazing companion to her first book Portuguese Homestyle Cooking. both books not only give you detailed instructions on how to make some of the most tasty recipes they also give you a glimpse into her life growing up in a Portuguese household and community were family is the most important part of your life. Over the years I have searched for different Portuguese bread recipes to try, some were alright but most lacked the wisdom and experience that Ana has. Her recipes are tried and true and the end results are incredible. Portuguese cooking is as varied as the country itself and Ana has brought so many recipes from different regions of Portugal in to this cookbook that you can cook your way through gastronomical tour of Portugal. The Portuguese have a word 'Saudade" melancholic longing or yearning some of us have this for a dish that our mother or fathers may have made when we were children, but alas they never wrote it down and now they are gone and the the recipe with them. Ana has put so many recipes from my childhood, that the smells and taste take me into my memories as if it were yesterday. I like to bake bread and this cookbook has given me so many different recipes to try and expand my horizons in baking because she has done all the trial an error for me. Cooking is not just about eating it's also about sharing your time, and making memories that is why like Ana's father I try and spend my time cooking and baking with my kids teaching the not only how to cook but the many traditions that go with the Portuguese and their food. I can not recommend this cookbook and her first book enough. Buy both read them from cover to cover, find something you like, and get to cooking making your own memories.
This book is simply beautiful. The cover is quality at it's best and filled with colorful photos, the pictures are beautiful! This book is very easy to follow and with ingredients that any true cook already have in their kitchen. This is the 2nd book I've purchased from Ana Patuleia Ortins and I hope it's not the last! Thank you ANA!!!!!
