Portuguese Fish Stew - Video
This Portuguese fish stew is normally made in a cataplana which is a Moorish designed copper domed dish. I have made mine in a thermal cooker which like the cataplana keeps the flavours in so they develop their intensity while cooking. The Western Algarve style cooking includes potatoes, firm white seasonal fish, seafood, peppers and a hint of chili. Once served from the thermal cooker all that is needed is a spoon and some crusty bread to mop round the bowl.

Pot Roast Rolled Leg of Pork
I bought a nice piece of pork the other day, about 1 kg in size and wanted to do something rather than roasting it in the conventional way. I therefore decided to pot roast it in white wine with leeks which are now in season. I used boned and rolled pork leg but shoulder would be just as good.
