A Taste of Portugal
We love making flavor dreams come true, especially this one! It began with an inspired conversation with David Leite, founder of the James Beard Award-winning website Leite's Culinaria, about crafting flavors to create a sense of time and place and ended with A Taste of Portugal.
In between, we sourced piri piri chiles direct from Portugal to give it an authentic hint of heat and enjoyed the evolving flavors on chicken and shrimp, seafood, salads and more. It's so easy to transform any dish! Just whisk the spice with butter or oil to create an incredibly flavorful sauce or David Leite's Favorite Portuguese Paste. We've packaged it up in a generous 4 oz. pouch which holds one cup of spice, so you can enjoy many servings of this inspired spice.
From David: Growing up, I loved watching the women in my family cook. And for so many dishes, they used the same ingredients for that incomparable flavor of my childhood: paprika, garlic, tomato paste, bay leaf, parsley, a splash of wine, and more. This spice mix is an homage to them and their cooking. All the familiar, comforting flavors of Portugal in one blend.
