For anyone wishing to get to grips with Portuguese traditional cooking, this is a very good book. It is full of informative photos and the recipes are reasonably easy to follow. What I like best in this book is that recipes - main courses, snacks, desserts, cakes, and others - are grouped by region. For Trás-os-Montes, amongst others, there are five recipes for 'bolas', pronounced 'bowlas' - meat, salt cod, chicken and rabbit, smoked ham, and sardine 'bolas'. These make lovely savoury snacks. Is there anyone who knows of a book exclusively on 'bolas'?
