There’s a very solid reason a seemingly simple rice dish is one of the rock star dishes at the NYC temple to new Portuguese cooking, Aldea. George Mendes’ infusion of flavor into everything he touches in his kitchen—besides this recipe, try his tasty shrimp alhinho—keeps the throngs of food-obsessed folks coming back. Serve this rice dish with duck for your next dinner party and your guests will be so impressed that you may have trouble stopping them from coming back as well!
