One great thing about attending an international business school is that I get to meet students from all over the world. And what brings people together like food? A couple of nights ago Koen and I went to Ines and Francisco’s apartment for a Portuguese dinner of chorizo and a bacalhau and potato casserole – and of course Portuguese wine!
I was curious to try bacalhau, a staple in Portuguese cuisine. Bacalhau is dried and salted cod fish and I read there’s more than 1,000 Portuguese bacalhau recipes! Ines told me that to make this casserole with potatoes, it needed to be rehydrated for 3 days before she could use it in the dish!
