Portugal: meet the small producers

A 16 day food tour through Portugal, that’s what I won with this post I submitted for the Aptece competition a few months ago.  I hardly had time to process my good fortune when I found myself in a van with four other bloggers, from different parts of the world, ready to embark on a whirlwind…
