Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Portugal for the first time. I was invited to attend the Porto.com Food & Wine Festival which took place in Porto, the Port capital of Portugal. This was truly a once in a lifetime adventure where I got to know the Portuguese culture through their amazing food, wine, people and experiencing the country. See more about the Porto.com festival below and all the amazing food & wine I was able to enjoy.

An assortment of some of the local curated meats. I attended the festival on my first day in Portugal and after a few days of exploring the country, I quickly learned in Portugal cheese and meats are a part of almost every meal.  It reminded me of the diet of my Norwegian family where cheese, breads and meats are served at lunch, breakfast and dinner. Quite delicious!!
