Aldea and Lupulo chef George Mendes brings his Michelin-starred Portuguese cuisine to the masses! Read our interview with the chef, and try your hand at a few of his favorite dishes, fresh from his cookbook: My Portugal. Mendes and this sausage-spiked omelet go way back.

Also known as mom’s feel-good omelet. On Sundays, we’d have our big family meal early in the day, so she’d throw this snack together late in the afternoon. Leftovers turned into sandwiches for my dad’s lunch box. No matter how you eat it, it’s comfort food at its best.
