The flavours of Alto Alentejo

…in your kitchen.

During the year 2013, in a joint effort with the Ader-Al – Association for the Development of Rural Areas of Alto Alentejo, and through the PACA project, funded by Proder – EU, Terrius developed and organized a series of workshops with some of the most respected chefs of the present day, of which we highlight António Nobre, Henrique Mouro, Leonel Pereira and Renato Cunha as tutors of each one of the events.

This cycle of workshops allowed us to present the diversity and richness of the products of the Northeast Alentejo in the main gastronomic plazas of the country, of which we highlight the TerriuS Products that include the Marão DOP Chestnut and the Maçã de Portalegre IGP variety Bravo Esmolfe, the Borrego do Nordeste Alentejano IGP, Portalegre IGP Sausages, Carnalentejana PDO and Nisa IGP Cheese, whose presentation dossier can be consulted here.
