Fresh Fish: Portuguese Influences on Coastal Cuisine


Around the turn of the century, large groups of Portuguese immigrants settled on the East Coast, some in the Cape Cod area. With them they brought their language, seafaring traditions, and recipes, which centered on the marine harvest.
James Beard-nominated Chef Alex Young will craft a menu which explores traditional Portuguese recipes, which were combined with the ingredients available to them.
