Serra da Lousã

The understanding between Mário Meira, the host, and chef Luís Rodrigues, was so immediate that there was little, if anything, to discuss in the exchange of ideas for the creation of the Espírito do Lugar Menu, of the Sabores da Aldeia restaurant, in Candal, Lousã, one of the Aldeias do Xisto (Schist Villages).

The gastronomic delicacies that featured on the usual menu, such as grilled sausages and dessert, were maintained: Talasnico with ice cream soaked in the (native) Beirão Liquor. The exception is the main dish: a stew of shredded meat in a still very liquid cooking sauce, produced when the pig was slaughtered.

With different types of meat, pork blood and various spices, this dish is made with the local products already used in the menu. A simple menu full of flavours that take us back to past times.

The meal is served in the room facing the kitchen, so that visitors can witness the whole cooking process.

Sabores da Aldeia is a space with an unpretentious and familiar atmosphere, where you can taste the best dishes of the region prepared in a wood-fired oven.
