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 April, Brian Oliveira and Brian Mattera of Happy Hour Hospitality will prepare a dinner of traditional Portuguese favorites: fresh rolls and lupini beans; shrimp rissóis (breaded and fried shrimp turnover); salt cod and chickpea salad with smoked bacon, pickled onions and cured egg yolks; grilled piri piri chicken (marinated and grilled bone-in) with yellow rice and crispy fries; and pastel de nata (crispy, creamy egg custard pastry with cinnamon). 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.
