Ricardo Cera, Executive Chef at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, said: “I’m excited to be sharing some of my favourite Portuguese food with our guests: this is the food that I grew up with. This is a fantastic way for locals and visitors to celebrate Portugal’s influence in Bermuda by enjoying classic Portuguese food made with locally grown and caught ingredients.”
