Pig farming is more than a mere habit in this region, having quickly become a necessity for the people who live in the villages. Pig slaughtering was therefore established as as an event that took place with some frequency, leading to the conception of various snacks that are considered true, authentic delicacies and are very popular amongst the locals.


The famous “Tachadéu” was born from this tradition – pieces of pork fried in clay pot – which has since become one of the typical dishes in the parish of Reguengo do Fetal.
