Largo do Paço, in Amarante, has a new letter and will pick you up at home to prove
The new tasting menus at Largo do Paço, a Michelin star restaurant installed at Casa da Calçada Relais & Chateaux, in Amarante, have been available since the beginning of July. With "fresh and authentic flavors", as read in a statement, the dishes developed by the team led by Tiago Bonito reinforce "its identity as an original and contemporary cuisine, with great connection to traditional Portuguese cuisine".
This heat is asking for a chocolate mousse with hazelnut and banana ice cream
We are a month from the beginning of summer, but we just feel like ice cream and recipes that we can make with them. Yes, because taking out of the box for a bowl and eating with a spoon is a thing of the past. Chef Tiago Bonito, from the Michelin-star restaurant Largo do Paço, in Amarante, created this chocolate mousse with an author's touch.
Romantic, historic, elegant, comfortable. Casa da Calçada is worth not only for the rooms and suites, but also for the gardens and pools, for the views and flavors. This is a well kept secret in the North.
“Chef Tiago Bonito began at Largo do Paço last year and has managed to keep the star that has distinguished this restaurante, set in Hotel Casa da Calçada Relais & Chateaux in Amarante, for many years. In 2019, the star remains.”
