Description
 
While the flavors of Portugal may be familiar to those who live in the not-too-distant East Coast cities of Providence, Boston and New York City (the three largest Portuguese American communities in the US), they are relatively hard to come by in the City of Brotherly Love. Due to the trade routes of Portugal’s previously expansive empire, its cuisine is both influenced by and influential upon the lands to which they traveled – Brazil, India, southern Africa and even Japan, to name a few. This January, Brian Oliveira and Brian Mattera of Happy Hour Hospitality will prepare a dinner of traditional Portuguese favorites: Portuguese rolls with butter and lupini beans; piri-piri shrimp with garlic; caldo verde (soup with linguica and kale); cod a lagareiro (fresh cod swimming in olive oil with crushed olives, potatoes and tomato) served alongside family style garden salad; and for dessert, pasteis de nata (crispy egg custard tarts). Happy Hour Hospitality is a creative culinary concept founded by Oliveira and Mattera, who, with a combined 25+ years of restaurant experience, have done it all – from dishwasher to line cook, bartender and chef, and even restaurant owner. Happy Hour Hospitality offers a variety of dining experiences, including drop-off and full-service catering, cooking classes and private dining.
