This starter is placed at your table as you're seated at the Lawrence Restaurant in Sintra, Portugal. It's marvelous with a chilled glass of Vinho Branco or maybe a White Port while you try to decide on an entrée. The Lawrence Hotel has been in operation since 1764. Although now complete with all the modern amenities, staying in one of their sixteen period decorated rooms takes you back to the 1800's. It's said the Lawrence is a restaurant with a hotel. The food is classic Portuguese. "Cod Flakes" Lawrence’s style with herbs and maize bread and Veal Tenderloin with toasted “Serra” cheese and potato gratin with grape and Port wine sauce are two of my favorites. They come impeccably served and paired with the finest wines Portugal has to offer. The Maître d' attends to your table like you're a missed friend, explaining the entrees and wines, inquiring about your stay and assuring that the courses arrive properly timed. There is so much to do in Sintra that it certainly merits an overnight for Gigi and I. Our visits are made all the more exceptional when we stay at Lawrence’s.
