I have lived all over the world as an expat. At first glance, I mistakenly took it for a cookbook of Portugal. However, it is so much more. I found myself reminiscing on my personal travels as I read the book. The comedy in this book is real. I say that, because expats face different challenges while abroad. The author, very eloquently, shares her adventures in Portugal. I don't want to give anything away, but it does talk about cooking, but so much more! I especially liked the innovative solutions to problems that all expats face abroad in one fashion or another. Worth reading. It is a memoir, so I felt it made the book more relatable. Enjoy your next book! I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The book is poorly researched, showing little interest in Portugal’s culture and history. Very disappointing.

Wonderfully surprising bookReviewed in Spain 🇪🇸 on September 29, 2022
It is only partially about food, just one of the aspects of Portugal that surprised the author in it's limitations. The author explains how she is mainly vegetarian, going back to her childhood with an alcoholic mom who served nothing but expired meat. Other aspects of her arrival were also not as she had hoped. I don't want to give too much away, but the stories start out slowly and paint pictures with lots of detail about locations in and around the city of Porto, its neighborhoods, and the people she meets. Each story begins almost with "dark humor," then gradually turns out right in the end. I felt I was "in the author's "shoes, and transported into another reality. It is a book full of color and has been one of my most enjoyable reads lately.
