Sweet and rich in flavor, the caramelized onions from the Portugal Box are a delicious pairing with savory foods. One of the most popular ways to eat in Portugal is with charcuterie or pâté. This simple recipe elevates a basic pâté toast with the simple addition of the onions from the box.

Frango Piri Piri

Grilled Chicken with Piri Piri

That spicy piri piri sauce from the Portugal Box makes an excellent marinade for all types of meat. This version, called “Frango Piri Piri,” is a popular, fast-casual grilled dish, and it’ll leave your mouth burning—in a good way.

Curried Fish Cakes

Every city has it’s own street food: New York has sweet peanuts and hot dogs. Rio de Janeiro its signature popcorn. Paris its crêpes. In Thailand, it’s fish cakes that street vendors sell on every corner. Here, Matt Powell incorporates Nittaya’s curry paste into the basic recipe to make an appetizer that’s bursting with flavor.

Thai-Style Bananas Foster

Bananas Foster, a dessert that originates in New Orleans, is a show-stopping piece whose preparation ends in sky-high flames jumping from the pan. With a few tweaks and Virgin Coco’s coconut crispy rolls, the dessert takes on Thai flavors.

Rum Cha-Yen

A boozy version of traditional Thai iced tea, Rum Cha-Yen calls for infusing Thai Tea Leaves directly into rum, making the tea flavor even more concentrated.

Pork, Rice, and Coriander Soup

Using the Jasberry rice from the Thailand Box, this traditional Thai soup takes on a distinct dark-purple hue. Brightly flavored with lime juice, the taste stands in stark contrast to the color.

Pavê de Geléia

Pavê de Geléia

In this Brazilian dessert similar to Italian tiramisu, butter cookies are layered with cream and the indulgent açaí dessert sauce from the Special Edition Holiday Box. While Pavê de Geléia is traditionally made with strawberry jam, we’re partial to this version with açaí that’s even sweeter than the classic.
