The tradition of preparing pastel de Chaves dates back to 1862, according to a popular legend, the first person to sell these unique pastries was Teresa Feliz Barreira, the founder of the first establishment where pastel de Chaves could be bought.

The origin of the Bacalhau à Brás recipe is uncertain, but is said arise in Bairro Alto, an old quarter of Lisbon. This savoury Portuguese dish is made from thin sliced pieces of salted cod, onions and thinly chopped fried potatoes, bound with scrambled eggs. It is garnished with black olives and sprinkled with fresh parsley.
