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.

Not a cooking class but a fun communal cooking activity
Three of us turned up expecting a cooking class. But we knew this was different when we were offered " help yourself wine" and snacks for the duration of the class. We were told of the menu and each person (14 participants) assigned activities to make our 4 course meal. No recipes were handed out and we weren't run through the method and ingredients for each course , although they are available somewhere on the internet. Rather we spent a lot of time chatting with fellow class members drinking wine and snacking. We didn't have to do any cleaning up or serving the final result was more like a meal in a restaurant with a fabulous fun bunch of strangers. Not what we expected but a great night nonetheless

Fun night out
This cooking class was fun. We made a full meal as a group and the atmosphere was very laid back. The course was totally worth doing;however, everyone was working on different components so most people missed how to make each dish. It was more of a cook together class than a lesson.

Nice, but little overpriced

Rita is an experienced guide who was really friendly and knowledgeable about Lisbon's history, culture, and social life. She took me to several cool places that I would have never found on my own. We walked and talked, ate and drank, it was great!

Azeitão Wine Tasting Tour from Lisbon
Amazing cooking class
Had an amazing night with the chef Maria! We ended up being just the two of us because two other people never showed. I got lucky because it was like a private class :) At first I thought I wasn't cooking enough I was more like an helper but Maria explained to me that portuguese food is usually made with family and everyone kind of just participate in their own way, and thought it made sense. The food we cooked was simply delicious!!! Really recommend taking this class :)

The tour was just fine, well planned and executed - and Rosa knew a lot about both cultural, history and food. A pleasure for sure.

Excellent Experience
What an incredible experience this was. Mariana was a wonderful hostess and took us to places we would have never found on our own. It is a "taste and explore" experience that is informative, enjoyable and delightful.
Old Town & Alfama Food Tour
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 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

Five stars for sure!
The tour far exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was knowledgeable, lively and very passionate about food and the neighborhood. I loved the area and different places she showed us and the food we ate. Part of our group met up again the next evening for dinner at the Mozambican restaurant. I definitely recommend the tour!
Downtown Mouraria Food & Culture Walking Tour
Lovely day – light and entertaining
The market tour was interesting in a sense of learning about Portuguese domestic products, especially the different types of fish and the variety of dishes which could be cooked. It was great going cooking from fresh products and being explained the history of various Portuguese dishes while drinking wine. It was a lovely day, very light and entertaining. At the same time it was amazing learning new things in that atmosphere. The recipes were sent by email directly after class-to practice the dishes back at home and remember Lisbon!

Our experience was a full five-stars! We had an excellent time and would recommend the tour to anyone without reservation.
Tram 28 Campo de Ourique Food & Culture Walking Tour
Cooking Lisbon was a fantastic introduction to Portuguese cuisine (which I knew very little about ahead of time)! The group class took on a communal feel, which was great for a solo traveler like me. We were three individuals and two couples, and under the instruction of the chef, we shared tasks to create a four course meal, before sitting down to eat together. We sipped wine, snacked, and learned about the recipes while creating soup, a fish dish, and meat dish and a dessert. A great overview to Portuguese food, and now I hope to recreate at home!
