On Sunday, I meet Sandra Tavares and her husband Jorge Borges at the Douro’s most exciting new restaurant, called D.O.C., which borders the river in the small village of Folgosa. It is run by a chef of bantam-rooster energy by the name of Rui Paula.
The descent into Porto began with a bolt of lightning and a thunderclap. I know that airplanes can survive lightning strikes, but I still wonder. It’s an inauspicious beginning to my third trip to the Douro Valley of Portugal.
