Pedro tells me that a Christmas without bacalhau in Portugal, is not Christmas. I had never heard of bacalhau until we met, when he explained that the Portuguese love salted cod so much that there are entire songs dedicated to it! Now this smelly yet deliciously versatile fish has become a part of my life.
So to my friends who celebrate Christmas, here's your bacalhau. Happy, happy Christmas!
May your holiday be full of light and love.
