"Cozinha Nova Portuguesa"
It’s a cuisine that uses the core flavors of traditional Portuguese food but uses local ingredients. Essentially, Cozinha Nova Portuguesa is ingredient driven – it’s about using whatever is available around you and adapting Portuguese flavors to those ingredients. In a way, this is precisely the foundation of traditional Portuguese food as well. Incorporating new ingredients is one of the hallmarks of Portuguese cooking historically, which has been influenced by ingredients and cultures from across the globe.
