Welcome to `O Cozinheiro Este Algarve`

Here at Casa Rosada as much of our produce as possible is sourced locally
and all food is home made. Our wine list encompasses a fair selection of Regional Portuguese wines. I source fresh food daily from local suppliers, of whom I will be talking about in my future posts. These producers are developing a sustainable economy, whist respecting the ecosystem and the cultural traditions of the area. My first point of contact is always if possible with the person who grew it.
Castro Marim is situated at the easternmost tip of the Algarve and just across the Guadiana river is Spain, so the food we serve at Casa Rosada has an Andalucian influence too. For a first taste of what is to come - the gazpacho soup I serve is the traditional Cordoban version Samarejo with a suggested accompaniment of a noble Tempranillo Valdepenas Gran Reserva.

Fresh food daily,defined by the seasons, and supplemented by the pickings from what we ourselves grow in our kitchen garden. Let the blog begin........
