Best Portuguese Recipes - Recipes with Oport Wine - Food & Port Wine
Me and the Port Wine
It all started when some relatives offered me a bottle of port wine...
I immediately saw myself drinking it but my wife had other plans for that precious drink - she had been collecting some old recipes which included Port wine in their composition.
And this time she took control and hid the Port wine bottle where I wouldn`t find it... not before she shout:
- "I warn you, this time I will make some food recipes with that wine so don´t you dare to start drinking it!"
As you can "hear" I had nothing to do but anxiously wait for those meals.
But I could not wait any longer without thinking about that delicious port wine so I decided to help her and I began researching for more recipes with port wine.
We have already tried them all and we loved it.
I hope you will enjoy this port wine recipes and I promise I will make more hubs on Portuguese recipes.
