A Culinary & Cultural Journey to Lisbon







A Culinary & Cultural Journey to Lisbon
May 2 - 18, 2014 


Scrumpdillyicious will be touring Lisbon from May 2 to 18, exploring the culinary and cultural pulse of Portugal's beautiful capital on the Tagus River, once called the "Ocean Capital of the Western World." Bathed in pure Atlantic light, crowned by the storybook St. George's Castle and straddling seven hills, Lisbon is one of Europe's most visually striking capitals. 

Join me online each day as we wander through Lisbon's charming, narrow cobblestone streets and alleys in the city's historic neighbourhoods of Chiado, Belem and Bairro Alto; listen to fado in the Alfama; indulge in custard tarts in gilded Art Nouveau patisseries; and dine at some of Lisbon's most celebrated restaurants to sample the best of Portuguese cooking from grilled sardines and bacalhau to Caldeirada and Ginjinha — aqui vamps nós!
