Joan's trip to Portugal begins with a visit to Casa Do Paco D'Ilhas. She prepares a traditional Portuguese stew and marmalade with owners Miguel and Margarita Cuhna. Then, it's off to Sintra, a medieval village where Joan meets up with Fernando Cuhna, one of the owners of Piriquita Bakery. Famous for their cheese pies, this fifth-generation family-run business has been serving up tasty treats since 1862. Joan's next adventure takes us to the seaside village of Ericeira, where Mario Claro, one of the owners of Marisqueira Cesar, a popular seafood restaurant, accompanies her. Joan and Mario take to the sea, catch fresh lobsters, and return to the restaurant to learn how to make the Claro family's signature dish, shellfish rice.
