Fun and delicious
We had a great time cooking and dining with Patricia and her family. She was very friendly and personable and gave us lots of great tips, not just about cooking the traditional Portuguese dish that we learned, but about Lisbon and Portugal in general. It was a great way to learn about Portuguese cooking and Portuguese hospitality. It was truly a unique experience.
A must-do experience while you are in Lisbon!
This experience was certainly one of the highlights of our trip. Spending the evening with Patricia and her family cooking and enjoying an authentic Portuguese dinner was an absolutely amazing experience! We were also very fortunate to learn much about the history of Portugal during our visit. Thank you so much Patricia with love.
Wonderful night !!! Great recipe !!! THX !!!
A most marvellous evening!
We had an amazing cooking class with Cristina and Porfirio - they welcomed us into their lovely home, we had been able to choose the food we wanted to cook and the admin had all been done very efficiently by Patricia. Delicious food, plenty of wine, good company, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend it.
Local flavor in a new-to-me city
My friend and I signed up for a cooking class with Singulartrips. We had a first time cooking class experience with first time teachers, Cristina and Firio. We had cheese & wine, a traditional Portuguese seafood stew, and a traditional homemade dessert made by Cristina. The couple were wonderful hosts - very friendly, inviting, and eager to share about their country, history, culture & family. They made us feel like part of their family, which made us invite each other to our respective houses should we ever venture there on another holiday. I would definitely book another local culinary adventure with Singulartrips.
Best tastings ever!
We did the tasting tour and the cooking class with Patricia. Great time,great tastings and experiences with this wonderful portuguese family. This was the highlights of our trip! We thank you Patricia for everything.
Best cooking course
My favourite cooking course so far! I met Luis and was guided to Patricia and Luis home for the course. They were excellent hosts, warm, charming and easy to get to know. Having tried octopus for the first time earlier on my stay in Lisbon I really wanted to learn how to prepare it,and Patricia granted my wish. We started preparing the octopus, and while it was in the pressure cooker we enjoyed cheese, sausages (chouriço and Farinheira) with moscatel wine. All the food was delicious, and getting a one on one teacher (Patricia) was excellent. If you wonder about taking a cooking class I really recommend Singulairtrips
