In this groundbreaking cookbook, Lisbon native and internationally renowned chef Nuno Mendes reveals the alluring food of one of the great undiscovered culinary centers of Europe.

Sharing recipes inspired by the dishes that he grew up eating, Mendes takes you to his beloved Lisbon, revealing the secrets for re-creating the city's most vibrant dishes. Via evocative essays and luminous photography, Mendes gives recipes for delicious bolas de Berlim (fluffy doughnuts often sold on the beach), sizzling squid with coriander, and roasted orange-rub pork belly with fennel. This is a heart-warming and intimate look at a city with a modern, bustling food scene that is nevertheless steeped in centuries-old traditions. Mendes's portraits of Lisbon's idiosyncrasies are threaded throughout the pages: impromptu sardine grills, endless snacking, and city-wide street carnivals. With gorgeous location photography, this book will bring to life Portugal's magnificent capital city and its fabulous cuisine.

Born and raised in Lisbon, Nuno Mendes worked in America, Japan, and Spain before heading up a string of critically acclaimed restaurants in London, including Bacchus and Viajante. Nuno is executive chef at London's Chiltern Firehouse and co-author of the Chiltern Firehouse cookbook. In 2015 he launched his first solo venture, restaurant Taberna do Mercado, which focuses on the food and wine of his native country of Portugal.
