We have been working on improving our bread since we arrived in Portugal.
There is nothing wrong with it. According to our friends and guests it’s among the best in town.
I am not happy with it – its good – but with the right flour it will be much better.
Last week we got the name of the mill where Filipe who is chef at Taberna do Mar gets his flour. We called them right away and arranged a meeting.
We went there Friday.
Then visit was such a positive surprise that we decided to take the rest of the day off – and instead visit the countryside from Cabeços, Alenquer where the Farinhas Paulina Hortas is to the Atlantic coast where we decided go to the beach and stay the night in Ericeira where our Italian friend runs a small restaurant with Italian classics.
It would have been fantastic if Manfred had been with us.
Manfred is Thomas’ grand son who just turned 3.
Kids his age are curious and impatient at the same time. So our day trip would be perfect for a boy or girl his age: Short distances, lots of things to experience along the ride, beach, cozy and lively city with lots of kids friendly places to eat – AND only 40 minute by car from Tings no matter where you are on the route 🙂
Of course there is a BUT.
This trip (and other similar trips) is only possible to do this in these Post Covid months.
Usually Ericeira is packed with travelers and impossible to enter in less than an hour because of the traffic – the reason why we never go there this time of the year.
But the biggest reason is that you can rent a small family car for nothing.
Its hard to find reason for not coming to Lisbon this summer
