The Porto bakery that packs its sourdough brioche with port-soaked raisins.
Porto’s Benedita Saavedra and Adriano Sequeira (pictured) launched their bakery Masseira in 2018. It specialises in sourdough and natural-fermentation bakes but to really make your day, it has a sourdough brioche filled with port-soaked raisins. Masseira’s story is one of many great discoveries in the brand-new Portugal: The Monocle Handbook, on sale from 20 October (order at monocle.com/shop). It’s as tasty as a Portuguese confection.
