Are you up for the challenge? You know the kind of challenge I am talking about, right? That one food item that you love but you find it too difficult to try at home. For me, that means baking, especially baking bread. But there is this one bread that I crave more often than I care to admit. That bread is Chorizo Bread | Pao Caseiro com Chourico. This Portuguese Recipe takes me right back to my childhood with my Avo. She baked her Chorizo Bread in a brick oven in her Cozinha. She baked every Saturday morning for the entire week and the house smelled absolutely amazing. I sat and waited until it came out of the oven so that I could spread butter on it. It was just the most amazing bread. We all knew we were in for a treat when she added Chorizo to the bread. Her kitchen smelled even better and we drooled a little longer in anticipation.
What makes Pao Caseiro so different from traditional white bread, is that it is really crusty on the outside and so soft on the inside. When Conni from The Foodie Army Wife suggested Food Challenge theme for #SundaySupper, I thought I was up for the challenge. I bought all the ingredients… and headed right over to Vo-Vo’s house with Reis in tow. Seriously, why challenge myself to such a difficult task like making Chorizo Bread when I could spend an afternoon in Vo-Vo’s Cozinha? She makes it look too easy and we have so much fun.
Remind me to tell you about the Cod Rice she made us for lunch…. mmmm… We had plenty of time to eat a leisurely lunch since making Pao Caseiro com Chourico is quite a process. That reminds me why I don’t like baking Pao Caseiro. You must be very patient, something that I clearly lack.
