    "This was great 30 years ago when it came out, but so many of the recipes are old and dated now and no one really eats it. An update would be nice though, as at the time of release I imagine it was pretty top notch at highlighting the great food of a great country. "

    "I recently started trying out International recipes and came across this great book on Portuguese cooking called Pimentos and Piri Piri written by Carla Acevedo. It has many easy and fantastic recipes that I have already tried out. I never thought that Portuguese cooking was something I could even try out, but this book really helped me."

    "My Portugal is a great book if you are interested in Portuguese cuisine. It offers Portuguese recipes along with different stories about the chef. There are a lot of pictures to help visualize the steps. The chef offers a more fancy version and a basic version of some recipes so you can adapt depending on what kitchen equipment you have."

    "My former boss is Portuguese. We had a potluck lunch at work one day and she brought in a Portuguese dish. When I asked her how she made it, she described the recipe and then she actually recommended this book to me if I wanted to try more. Everything in this book is very straightforward and so far it's all been delicious. Highly recommended."

    "I'll admit that there's a lot of good material in here. But I paid over $100 (and maybe that's on me) for this, and I expected more for the money. If you're a professional chef and can deduct this from your taxes, by all means go for it. Home cooks can get better bang for the buck elsewhere."
