At home, she cooked for her whole family meals based on the multiple influences of Portuguese cuisine. The recipes now in this book, such as açorda from Alentejo, creamed spinach, chorizo rice, stews or fried sardines. Not forgetting, of course, the deserts, Silver Cake, Heavenly Lard or Raisin Slices."
