Maria's Portuguese Table - New Bedford, Massachusetts
Maria's journey circles back to her home community of New Bedford Massachusetts. Maria arrived in New Bedford from Sao Miguel, Azores when she was just six years old. Historically, many people who immigrated to New Bedford worked in not only in mills but in the fishing industry, and Maria meets a young woman who is now running the family business. She talks about her roots, and teaches Maria how to cook her favorite scallop recipe. Maria then meets Jessica Arruda, owner of Tia Maria's European Cafe. Jessica discusses her Portuguese family, and then they cook a recipe that Jessica's mother taught her in the Cafe's kitchen. Then Maria heads to the north end part of New Bedford and meets with the Festiros (Feast Committee Members) of Feast of the Blessed Sacrament, just a few days before the Feast begins.
