Tradition is best celebrated in special dates like Christmas, where the table is filled with love and food. In Portugal, where I am from, Christmas is a moment to cook our best and most traditional recipes. Besides codfish, because there isn’t a Portuguese table at Christmas without codfish, there are other dishes that also celebrate the Portuguese culture. One of them is Lagareiro Octopus, an oven dish served with roasted potatoes and a very tender octopus. In this article I bring you this recipe and also another one, which is my favourite Portuguese delicacy for Christmas, Pumpkin Cakes. Merry Christmas and Bon Appetit!
The first time I visit Tenerife I thought it was a small island, but I was so mistaken. This island has everything, different climates, diverse nature, several sports to practice, indoors and outdoors, shopping and mostly important, a lot of restaurants and cuisines to choose from. I have been enjoying every minute of my new life in Tenerife and the Restaurant El Rincon de Juan Carlos is part of a luxury experience that I would recommend, when you want to taste the best of Canary Islands cuisine whilst having the best view over the ocean.
