MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING: Co-Hosts in Portugal

 

On this episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking, co-hosts Pete Evans and Alex Thomopoulos join forces in Lisbon, Portugal, to cook up an outstanding locally sourced feast. They begin by gathering the freshest ingredients at a Setubal market, Mercado de Livramento, considered one of the best in the world. Next, the pair visits the popular Time Out Market, studded with restaurant stalls and offering local flavors that will provide inspiration for their meal. Then it’s to the kitchen where they roll up their sleeves to cook a traditional Portuguese-inspired feast that includes Spiced Chicken Escabeche; Grilled Octopus Salad with Peppers, Herbs, and Citrus; Creamy Tomato Rice; Seared Swordfish with Citrus Vinaigrette; and a Pastel de Nata (Portuguese Custard Tart) for dessert.
