Your Guide to Authentic Portuguese Flavours at Divino

Olive oil: the base of the best Portuguese cooking

 

Portuguese olive oil is renowned for its quality and diverse flavour profiles, ranging from smooth and fruity to spicy and complex. 

 

It's a staple in Portuguese cooking, ideal for dressing salads, enhancing the flavour of dishes, or simply for dipping bread.

 

For everyday cooking I recommend Camponês Olive Oil Extra Virgen. If you’re looking for something a little more special, this little bottle of Qampo Extra Virgin Oil is perfect for dipping and mixing with a balsamic like Gallo.

 

Cheeses: smooth & creamy

 

Portugal offers a variety of cheeses, from the creamy and soft Queijo da Serra to the firm and flavoursome Azeitão. Each region has its speciality, making Portuguese cheese a delightful journey through taste and tradition.

 

If you tend to choose a mild cheese, look no further than the Paiva Mixed Cheese. For a more unique flavour, you could try Pastor Da Beira Alta, a sheep’s cheese from the Beiras region.

 

Cured meats: a Portuguese tradition

 

From smoky slices of ‘Chouriço’ to the delicate ‘Presunto’, Portuguese cured meats are perfectly preserved and wickedly delicious. These flavoursome delicacies are perfect for charcuterie boards, or to add a touch of Portugal to your meals.

 

If you like your charcuterie pre-sliced, Porminho Presunto Fatiado is an inexpensive yet flavoursome introduction to Portuguese sliced meats. Alternatively, Quintinha Chouriço Mouro is a potent, smokey sausage, full of flavour and notoriously moreish.    

 

Canned Fish: quality and convenience

 

Portugal’s canned fish, such as sardines, mackerel and tuna, are celebrated for their flavour and quality. Packed in olive oil, tomato sauce, or spiced up with chilli, they reflect Portugal's connection with the sea.

 

My two favourite brands of Portuguese tinned sardines and tuna are Bom Petisco and Ramirez. We stock the full range of flavours of both, including:

 

  • Olive oil
  • Vegetable oil
  • Spicy Tomato
  • Tomato
  • Spicy Oil
  • Black Eyed Beans
  • Chickpeas

Sweets and pastries

No taste of Portugal is complete without indulging in its confectionery traditions. From the iconic Pastéis de Nata (custard tarts) to the almond-based sweets from the Algarve, Portuguese pastries and sweets reflect the country's rich culinary heritage.

 

Our Patéis de Natá’s are delivered frozen so you can stock the freezer and pop a couple on for your morning coffee when you need a little hit of Portuguese sunshine.



Other popular sweet treats include Bolas de Berlim, Portugal’s answer to the Berliner. These custard-filled delights are delivered in bulk and made to be enjoyed with family and friends.

 

Sea salt and seasonings

 

Portuguese sea salt and a variety of traditional seasonings like Piri Piri offer a simple way to bring Portuguese flavours into your kitchen. Whether you're cooking seafood or seasoning meat, these essentials will bring some kick to your dishes.

 

If you want to stock the cupboards with Portuguese seasonings, we’ve got you covered. Check out our full range of authentic sauces and seasonings here.
