Culinary Journey from Portugal to Pittsburgh

Culinary Journey from Portugal to Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh has evolved in all things having to do with food and culinary.  With humble beginnings dating back to the produce terminal in the Strip District to Pittsburgh being a culinary destination for locals and tourists alike.

We have our small, but mighty, diverse immigrant population to thank for our culinary choices and history in Pittsburgh.

Celebrate this fact as we travel to the Azores with Elsa Santos from the Azorean Cafe. The Cafe is one of the favorite stops on the Burgh Bits and Bites Bloomfield food tour.

Elsa shares stories about the beautiful Portuguese islands she calls home. Cook along with Elsa as she makes a Traditional Portuguese Kale Soup.

Not only will you hear about the Azores, but you’ll also learn the history of Bloomfield, Pittsburgh’s Little Italy where the Azorean Cafe is located.
