Chanfana is a slow cooked goat stew, and you can try the best at Chanfana Week! January 21 to the 22nd. At the UNIVERSAL capital of Chanfana, Vila Nova de Poiares!
Oh, we cannot forget the clay pot in which it is cooked - a traditional Vila Nova de Poiares black clay pot called a caçoila.
What is chanfana after all ? A tasty traditional dish served only in Central Portugal. It is a dish based on goat meat, slow cooked in a caçoila of black pottery in woodburning stoves, steeped in red wine, garlic, bay leaves, pepper, colorau and salt.
