Francesinha night… in Canterbury!

Yes, indeed! Our latest meeting of the Portuguese group involved a fairly elaborate Porto delicacy, the famous francesinha. šŸ˜€

Yum! It looks absolutely gorgeous, doesn’t it?

Even though I’ll head back to Porto in a few days, one can never say no to a francesinha, especially one that was completely home-made, following a fairly complex recipe for its sauce (I lost track of the ingredients after a while, they were so many! šŸ™‚ ).

And to our vegetarian friends, the chef Bela Soares created a masterpiece – a “veggie” francesinha featuring eggplant and mozarella, which looked also fairly well-composed, and the “unusual” ingredients in it made it look fairly smart and sophisticated. (and it also tasted brilliantly, according to our vegetarian friends!)

I think it is fair to say that it would be viable to open a Porto restaurant here in Canterbury!
(well, perhaps they wouldn’t like the tripes as much as the francesinha… šŸ™‚ )

All in all, it was an excellent evening. I do miss speaking Portuguese when I’m out and about (skypeing does not count!), and this kind of events really help making that happen. And I’ve also had the opportunity to meet some very nice people, while at it!…

And here it is, the whole group.
Yours truly is over there on the left, grinning stupidly for no apparent reason and making a sad figure of himself…
