Clams à bujão pato

For most foreigners, the first thing we might think of when we see or hear the words Bulhão Pato is probably a delicious dish of clams. However, to the locals and fans of Portuguese literature, it’s actually the last name of a famous poet – Raimundo António de Bulhão Pato. So how did a 19th century poet become better known for clams, than his writing? Well, the local legend suggests a chef rewarded him for a mention in his book, by naming the dish after him. The chef’s name has since been lost, so there’s no way to confirm this. Alternatively, it’s also been suggested that the clams received their name, from being frequently served by Bulhão Pato at his parties to other notable members of the avant-garde community of writers, artists and cultural figures of Costa da Caparica when he settled in the late 19th century.

#2 cheesecake


Cheesecake is a sweet dessert consisting of one or more layers. The main, and thickest, layer consists of a mixture of a soft, fresh cheese, eggs, and sugar. If there is a bottom layer, it most often consists of a crust or base made from crushed cookies, graham crackers, pastry, or sometimes sponge cake.
