Much more than a cookbook, this is a wonderful encyclopedic collection of information about culture, wines, cheese, sausages and hams, herbs, spices, and sweets of the various regions of Portugual. Anderson explores the influences of the Moors, and the shipping trades the Portuguese were so famous for. My introduction to Portuguese food came from my late mother in law. My husband's Aunt and his grandfather gave me more instruction in the family's favorites. This book has been well used since I bought it in Portugal years ago, but I'd never taken the time to sit down and read the introductory information until now. The first 85 pages are all the history and glossary, and then each section, and often, each recipe, has introductory material telling how the ingredients are procured, what section of the country it comes from, and how Americans can cook in their kitchens. A fun book to look at if you've never tried Portuguese food.
