Açorda, serra style
The word “açorda” is derived from the term ath-thurdâ, which is used in the Arab countries of the Mediterranean. Açorda is a distinctive component of a culture that, within Portugal, is most evident in the Alentejo and the Algarve. Traditionally a winter dish, açordas are common throughout the inland part of the Algarve, but they are cooked all over the region.
Açordas prepared with shellfish, with different kinds of clam, or with chicken and chickpeas are very popular, and some people organize weekend trips specifically to savour this dish. This is just one of the interesting facts that you will learn in this experience, during which you will learn to make açorda with salt-cod and egg.
