TAKE A SNACK (1)

In the Alentejo you eat and drink very well. Eating, drinking and snacking are rituals, ways to live, to receive, to celebrate. It is said that in the house of a true Alentejo, has much or has little, the table is always put. It is true. And this reality gives a very special flavor to the discovery of gastronomy and wines. The snack is a true Alentejo institution. There is no end of day when you do not feel the slow movement of the steps that know by heart the way to the meeting places where the pleasant talking is made around a glass of wine and a number of "snacks": greaves, roasted peppers, various sausages, pork ears, cheeses, coriander liver, olives, roasted mushrooms, octopus salad, grain with cod ... the list would be endless, but it would be incomplete without the faithful and characteristic Alentejo bread. "Take a Snack" anywhere, it is from such experiences that, accepting to be born in Alentejo for a few days, cannot even lose.
