Originating from the Alentejo this is perhaps one of the most famous Portuguese dishes.

The name Carne de Porco à Alentejana was to distinguish that the pork used in the dish is from that region of the country which rears the Black Iberian Pig. The meat from the Iberian pig, who are fed on a diet of acorns has a higher fat content which produces a more tender and flavorful meat.

The Alentejo is the agricultural heart of the country. Known as the breadbasket of Portugal it holds food festivals all year round and produces almost half of the country’s wine. Here at Sunvil we’ve provided some information about our favourite foodie outlets in the Alentejo. We have visited all of these restaurants, bakeries and local food producers and recommend that you do, too!
