A lot of our spices come from India, and the orient in general. When Portugal colonized India a long time ago, the spices were used in the trading process, which in turn was then used in Portugal. Therefore the Portuguese flavors are very tasty and are seasoned with several spices. This in turn made the food served very rich, filled with mouth-watering flavors, and loved by all. Today the Portuguese gastronomy is still very rich, yet has gained a name for itself, offering the world some of the best, most gifted kitchen chefs. Wherever you go in Portugal, it is almost impossible for you to have a bad meal.
Another historic fact about the Portuguese gastronomy relates to the typical Portuguese desserts. Adored all over the world, these desserts are made mostly from eggs. This is due to the fact that Portugal, being a very catholic country, used to have several convents in which the food was cooked by the nuns. Because the egg yolk was not very used in the cooking of main meals, there was a lot of egg yolk that was left over. Therefore, the nuns started to invent dessert recipes with the egg yolks and sugar. This is also why most of the name of these desserts are related to god and to convent terms. In Portuguese these are called doces conventuais.
