The priest asking for Folar
The priest asking for Folar

The Folar is traditionally the bread of Passover in Portugal, an ancestral food mede of the ritual and alchimist mixture of the water, salt, eggs and flour of wheat. The form, the content and the secret of the confection varies as the regions of Portugal and goes since the salty one to the sweet, in the most diverse forms.

The tradition of folar has as base all a ritual of allotment, solidarity and brotherhood, with a strong symbolic and religious meaning.

It is also the offering to the godsons for the godfathers and of the fidiciary offices to the priest for the time of Easter. A very strong linking between this act and the bread that Jesus distributed with the disciples in the last supper. In some prescriptions it comes with an boiled egg with rind, that symbolically represent the renaissance and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Particularly the north-eastern of Portugal in Chaves or Valpaços folar is made stuffed with meat of pig, ham, salpicão and linguiça.

A true link of union between the Land and the the Holy for the symbolic that represents.
