Portugal Dinner

Malveira da Serra, February 15, 2013

The Bailliage of Greater Lisbon returns to Quinta Magnólia

Quinta Magnólia is a peaceful paradise with three historic, typical Portuguese luxurious cottages and a large pool area. From there one can enjoy stunning sea views overlooking the picturesque village of Malveira da Serra and the famous beach of Praia do Guincho, as well as Cascais and Estoril.

It was not the first time that we had dined at Quinta Magnólia nevertheless, as before we were in for a pleasant surprise. Even though Steven Snow, the renowned seafood chef, had returned to his native Australia, the new Portuguese Chef, Pedro Peinado Pereira, delighted us with a five-course menu.

Combining the best local seafood with organic vegetables and herbs from the restaurant’s own gardens, Chef Pereira created an excellent dinner in which he took the opportunity to present three new dishes from the restaurant’s 2013 menu.

By unanimous agreement these new dishes were a complete success. Adding them to the old favourites will undoubtedly mean we shall return on many occasions to dine in the coming months, be it as individuals or as a formal Bailliage group.

Vive la Chaîne !
