There's also a prize for the first person to post photos of all the fish in this recipe!
Just as caldeirada is rich in the diversity of flavors and textures of various fish, communities also have their strength in the contribution of people with different characteristics and identities that enrich a common project. The mural we are proposing represents not only a typical dish from the Algarve region, but also the cultural diversity and individual identities that together identities that together form the identity of Portimonense.
