Essential Reading: ‘The Wine & Food Lover’s Guide to Portugal’

‘The Wine & Food Lover’s Guide to Portugal’ is a comprehensive guidebook to Portugal for people who like eating and drinking. Charles Metcalfe and Kathryn McWhirter explain all there is to know about Portugal’s wines, foods and cooking, as well as writing about the churches, museums, galleries, mountains, beaches and other places that shouldn’t be missed. 

They also give entirely independent recommendations (no fees for publication have been asked for or accepted) of restaurants, bars, wine and food shops and places to stay. These range from tiny, hole-in-the-wall tascas (the simplest form of Portuguese restaurant) to the finest of modern and traditional eating, and from bed-and-breakfast accommodation and houses to rent to the grandest and most luxurious hotels.
