  • Eat like an Italian

    20 July, 2015 Eat like an Italian

    If you’ve ever been on holiday to Italy, like us, you’ve probably eaten classic pizzas, pastas and risottos until you’re fit to burst. While sticking with what you know isn’t always a bad thing, delve a little deeper and you’ll find the true heart of the region; eating cotoletta in Milan, beans in Florence and artichokes in Campania will open up a whole new world of Italian cooking. We spoke to three Air B’n’B hosts about the food of their region, must-eats while you’re there, and asked about the best-kept secrets when it comes to eating out.

A Portuguese Christmas with Nuno Mendes

19 December, 2017

If you’re becoming a little tired of the standard Turkey roast at Christmas and contemplating an update, looking to other country’s traditions can be a great place to start. We took a look at what a Portuguese Christmas might look like with Nuno Mendes’ Lisboeta.

Christmas Eve

Festive feasting begins on Christmas Eve in Portugal, with the age-old tradition of families coming together to eat cod. Nuno’s recipe, baked in a cornbread crust, works great with fennel, green leaves and a big wedge of lemon.

Christmas morning breakfast

Best served with lots of crusty bread, these scrambled eggs with smoked sausage will ensure a great start to Christmas morning and fuel for opening all those presents. Quality of ingredients is key, so do get hold of some real Portuguese farinheira if you can (it’s available online) to make this breakfast an extra special one.

The main event

With crisp skin and lovely succulent insides this roast pork belly, flavoured with orange and coriander makes a great alternative to turkey. Serve with Nuno’s Potatoes with caramelised onions and melting cheese for a truly indulgent dinner.

Then, finish off the feast with floating poached meringues, perfect for making ahead, the cinnamon topping is like a sprinkle of Christmas on your taste buds.
