The Portuguese prefer rice dishes baked in the oven. I tried to do this dish the “authentic" way, with duck pieces, sausage, ham, rice, carrots, and lemon, bound together with egg and baked in a casserole–a recipe from the town of Braga–but the result was too heavy for mv taste. Because risotto is growing in popularity. I tried the more familiar Italian route and presented the Portuguese ingredients in the manner of a classic risotto. Yes!
