This episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking takes us to the southernmost region of continental Portugal, called the Algarve. Joining host Alex Thomolopoulos is Michelin-star-chef Leonel Pereira and his friend chef Louis Anjos to create an epic menu of Portuguese dishes using cutting-edge cooking techniques. To gather ingredients, the trio heads to the coast to catch local blue crab. Next is a visit to one of the chefs’ favorite spots, the Faro Municipal Market, to source additional seasonal ingredients. Then Alex, Leonel, and Louis head to Leonel’s restaurant, São Gabriel, known for its dishes inspired by the sea, to start cooking. On the menu will be the makings of an incredible feast, which includes a Cataplana and a Caldeirada—two versions of seafood stew—and an Orange, Fennel, and Almond Salad with a Sweet Vinaigrette Dressing.
