A visit to @rest_fortalezadoguincho, which has held a Michelin star in Portugal for a long time (since 2001) to get to know the work of @gil.vieira.fernandes, the young chef with solid culinary background that includes work experiences and internships in several renowned restaurants ( @delibrijezwolle @restauranteocean @restaurant_geranium @vilajoya @martinberasategui ) who took over the leadership of the restaurant in 2018.
Here are five highlights from the “Memories” menu where recollections of his youth in his hometown of Lourinhã are combined with his understanding of the context (the restaurant is located right in front of the fabulous Guincho beach near Cascais) and terroir.

Hottentot fig (Carpobrotus edulis) marshmallow , Greater amberjack and tomato gazpacho
Iberian Black Pig , Carrots, Pear
King crab from the Azores, homemade achar sauce, octopus
