Gastronomic Tour Braga
Erected more than 2,000 years ago, Bracara Augusta was, as its name indicates, founded by Augustus it was located on one of the main Roman roads of the Iberian Peninsula.
Braga is the Land of industrious people where you can easily make friends, full of traditions and history. Braga knows how to welcome its visitors providing a good table, along with some Vinho Verde: a young, fresh, heady and fruity wine.
For many years, the diversity of the natural landscape received influences of other cultures. All together, these elements create a festival of flavors and subtle scents that illustrate well the Minho gastronomy.
In Braga, there’s something local, although copied a little everywhere: the Braga Style Duck Rice, rice cooked in the broth, in which the duck was cooked and taken to the oven with chorizo slices and ham strips.
The City of the Archbishops has also a special touch in what concerns to “Papas sarrabulho”. It’s fundamental to accompany the sarrabulho with “Rojões”(seasoned pieces of pork loin).
Exclusively from Braga, you can also find the “Frigideiras”: large puff pastry stuffed with beef and ham.
Concerning sweets, Braga´s gastronomy reaches its greatest originality and refinement with the Priscos Abbot pudding, scallops, king’s cake, the sweets of the festivals and Braga’s fidalguinhos, a dry biscuit to accompany tea as well as other rich, popular and monastic traditional specialties.
