Vila Nova de Famalicão 'on fire'

After the success of the first edition of 'Fogo de Chão e Potes no Quintal' in 2020; Renato Cunha, chef and owner of ferrugem restaurant, and his wife, architect Anabela Rodrigues Cunha; have designed a cycle of outdoor cooking experiences, which began in May and run until October. Quality wine will also not miss!

For two years, the couple has been betting on immersive experiences in rurality, joining three spaces, whose functions complement each other: the Ferrugem restaurant and the local accommodation, Casa de Maganhar and Casa Ana Monteiro. The affinity of objectives and the physical proximity of these places, naturally established an integrated cluster, with a purpose of self-sufficiency based on local product, identity, knowledge and culture.

About 200m from Ferrugem, Casa Ana Monteiro is a small family farm, with a popular architecture dwelling, currently destined for tourist exploration. With garden, biological garden and excellent conditions for the creation of capoeira animals, it is a perfect stage for the experiences of 'Fogo de Chão e Potes no Quintal', both for the beauty of the space, as for the privacy that the topography of the land gives it. Cooking in cast iron pots and outdoors, the proposal is based on a sharing exercise, in which the chef shows his gastronomic versatility and passion for origins, invoking comfort dishes that are part of the rural imagination, resulting in delicacies of popular presentation and sophisticated flavor. The addition, '#ircomsedeaopote' has the participation of some invited chefs and several wine producers, being already confirmed: Quinta da Faísca and Adega Casa da Torre, Quinta do Crasto, Quinta das Bágeiras, Quinta de Cottas, Quinta de Ceis, Covela and Quinta de Soalheiro.
