Dinner at Friends'

We were dinner guests in a friends home in Braga (Portugal) last night.

The starter course included Cod Tongue, Braised Mushrooms, and a medley of sausages from four different regions of Portugal.

The main course was a hearty dish of bread topped with a thin broth and then large chunks of roasted lamb.

Dessert was a selection of traditional cheeses, an egg tart, and homemade fig jam.
Wines were: a local vinho verde to start, then red with the lamb, and a silky wonderful local port with the cheese.

The meal finished with coffee spiked with rum, Tia Maria, and topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate.
