1. You love your Cozido à Portuguesa in winter. After all, it’s the king of Portuguese meals. 2. You add garlic, olive oil and onion to every dish you make. 3. You buy your seafood from the local Fish Centres. 4. There is always some bacalhau (salted cod) in your home. 5. Chouriço and Linguiça sausages are in everything. 6. Your family started off in the south of Johannesburg. In fact, you still have relatives living there. 7. The Lusito Land Festival is a favourite annual event for you to connect with friends and family.
In the spirit of celebrating our rich cultural history during Heritage Month and on Heritage Day, here is some humour on being proudly Portuguese South African.
