Let’s Celebrate Portugal Day 2010

I am very please to present a fantastic collection of Portuguese inspired recipes in honor of Portugal’s national holiday Dia de Portugal. The date June 10th is significant because it marks the death of Luís de Camões, Portugal’s greatest poet, who penned Os Lusíadas, which is an epic poem that celebrates Portugal’s history and achievements.  Some truly remarkable food bloggers have gathered to celebrate the cuisine of Portugal for this Portugal day Roundup!  Thank you to everyone who participated!  I’ve really enjoyed all your posts.

Please take a moment and check out this delicioso dishes:

Biren @ Roti n Rice created a wonderful Caldo Verde: Portuguese Green Soup
Stella @ The Witchy Kitchen has cast a spell on us with her Portuguese Orange-Olive Oil Cake
Christina M. @ The Rowdy Chowgirl (I love the name) reconnects with her Portuguese heritage with Portuguese Sopas
Lynn L @ I’ll Have What She’s Having shares a spicy treat with A Taste of Portugal
Natasha @ 5 Star Foodie presents a delectable dessert Aletria: Portuguese Vermicelli Pudding
Filomena @ As Nossas Cozinhas prepares an amazing Docinhos de Gemas e de Chila
Sofia @ Food Ideas, who is hosting an actual Portugal Day at her house will be serving Acorda de Marisco – Shellfish Bread Stew and a host of other outstanding dishes.
Lois B @ Food is my Love Language is tempting our taste buds with some creamy Flan
Sharlene T @ Solar Cooking for Mainstream Cooks will be joining us shortly with a solar delight of Portuguese Paella
Me @ Eating, Gardening & Living in Bulgaria whipped up a meat and potatoes extravaganza of Carne de Vinha d’Alhos

For those of you who are unaware, July is the month to celebrate Canada (1st), America (4th), and France (14th), which got me thinking about which country to highlight.  I feel everyone is familiar enough with French cuisine that a plethora of ideas will flood your head instantly just at the mere mention.  Then I though about Canadian cuisine, which I am not at all familiar with, but then another idea came to mind about American cuisine.
Living in Bulgaria, I get a lot of American backlash from non-Americans that we have no culture or cuisine, not to mention our politics.  Being a proud American (though not all the time), I am forced to answer the question of what is American cuisine.  I am calling all food bloggers, not just Americans to ponder:  What is American cuisine? There is no right or wrong answer.  This event will allow us to start a discussion about defining a cuisine and a culture.
If you are interested please let me know so I can add you to the blog roll, which I will post in a reminder on June 27th… to participate please send me your entries via email by July 3rd and include a photo. Be sure to mention that Casey (me) at Eating, Gardening Living in Bulgaria organized the event and include a link to my site www.caseyangelova.com.
