This episode takes a look at the cooking of Portugal for a gooey egg cake, a hearty braise and a fragrant soup. First, Milk Street Cook Bianca Borges bakes a Portuguese Sponge Cake with an airy, golden-hued crumb. Then, Christopher Kimball cooks Madeiran Pork with Wine and Garlic (Carne Vinha d’Alhos), equally suited as a main course or sandwich filling. Finally, Milk Street Cook Josh Mamaclay prepares Garlic and Cilantro Soup with Chickpeas (Açorda Alentejana), thickened with toasted bread and topped with soft cooked eggs.
