    That is one colourful buffet! If it tasted half as good as it looks I’m sure it was amazing. Did you get to keep the basket you made?

    Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the Portuguese corn based soup, but I know an other food that is named after the dish it is cooked and served in. It comes from the Iberian peninsula as well, but not oceanside. It is a Mediterranean classic. This food used to be of the poor, but nowadays it is famous worldwide. Locals would eat it every day, and they literally do it, tourists are also excited about it. It is originally from the Orange-blossom coast. I am sure you know this dish. I would not like to tell u more about it, because It would make me happy if you could guess it. You’ve asked where you should travel next. I think you should visit ………….. (guess the city pls) In Spain. You would be impressed by the beauty and the charm of the city, if you have not been here yet. I’d recommend u to come any time of the year: January almond blossoming, and from February mimosa and all plants start blossoming the city is perfumed by orange and jazmine, a pleasure to walk around…. cultural festivals throughout the year, March: Fallas (this fiesta is something very unique…) I am sure that in instagram with hashtag fallas u see what I mean…. summer is summer, autumn is warm and happy. We are praying for rain, as it is not raining too often… lovely smooth climate. For describing gastronomy here I am not finding words, enjoying the amazing restaurants and bars that are countless. I’d also recommend Budapest, which is a beautiful city, with very sad history, but I am not a travel agent, and I have to go back to read and comment your blog entry… as I would like to win your cookbook. Take care @narancsviragpart

    Hi Lorraine,

    I’m from north of Portugal so I’m not sure wich soup is that but by looking to the picture looks like “Sopa do Cação” (Cação Soup). Talking about tipical dishes, you should try eat “Francesinha” (it’s a typical dish from north of portugal, more in Porto, that looks like chips and a sandwich filled with ham, several sausages, beef and melted cheese that might be served with a fried egg on top of it. The best part of the dish is the tomato based spicy sauce that is all over the dish).

    I love your recipes, you have a cooking style that is wonderful because you use normal ingredients to make stuning and very tasty dishes.
    I’ve been looking for a chocolate cake recipe to make at home similar to a cake that i ate once that was the best chocolate cake i ate so far, the cake was not really a sponge cake but was still airy and fluffy and yet, very wet and moist (looked like a sponge cake but not dry, looked like it was crumbling appart and very wet). Even without frosting or filling, was moist and delicious. From your chocolate cake recipes (I only have one of your books yet, shame I know) is there any one similar to this cake description?

    Thank you for your time and please keep your great work 🙂
