Set the stage with alfresco flourishes at this Portuguese-style barbecue. This lively menu for eight captures all the flavours of summer and is easy to prepare.
We took a cocktail traditionally made with ruby Port and brandy and lightened it up with white Port and effervescent white wine. Champagne flutes are the prettiest choice for this refreshing aperitif.

This refreshing hot-weather soup is popular across Portugal and Spain, where tomatoes and peppers are abundant. It's important to give this soup the full 24 hours of rest in the fridge to mellow the onion and garlic. The soup will separate, but a gentle stir brings it back together.
The hot and sweet peppers typically used in Portuguese cuisine are the inspiration for this mild spice mix. If you like, make a paste of equal parts spice mix and olive oil and use it as a rub for chicken, pork or shrimp.
Traditional Portuguese piri-piri chicken is notorious for its spiciness. This version mixes a little bit of that heat with classic North American barbecue flavours. Grilling the chicken over indirect heat allows it to cook through without charring the skin.
This is the ultimate make-ahead grilled side dish. Simply prep the vegetables the night before and refrigerate in an airtight container. They're delicious hot off the grill, but just as tasty cooled to room temperature.
This simple tart has a barely there pastry that allows summer's juiciest orchard fruits to shine. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or a splash of Armagnac for a luxurious finish.
