Wonderful small group experience. See, select and experience hands on traditional Portuguese shopping & cooking. I can extend my trip by replicating, what I learned.
Great experience, well worth it.
our teacher, Mateo, was great and very easy to work with. it was fun to go to the market and the recipes were simple, interesting and delicious.my favorite was probably the olive oil testing, I had no idea olive oil could be that good.
I took the market tour and cooking class with Isabel as the Chef, and Luis, an owner, as a tour guide and host. The class and tour had 3 other students, so the size was ideal. Each student had individual attention, and just enough cooking to keep us all occupied without feeling stressed. The Mercardo da Ribeira was quite the sight to behold! A huge market with fish, meat, breads, fruits vegetables, etc. The fish mongers kept everyone entertained with their knife skills. In addition, there is a giant "food court" attached to the market, where we stopped for refreshment (pastel de Nata) before heading back to the cooking school to make a delicious 4-course lunch using the ingredients we just purchased, including squid, sausage made with pork fat and flour (used in an egg dish), chicken in a pot, and potatoes, rice, tomato, and a very unique and tasty local sweet. All the while, Isabel and Luis kept us well informed of local ingredients, including the freshest fish, while Luis kept our wine glasses full of local wines. We also tried 4 types of olive oil, made in Portugal of course, and the conversation flowed very nicely. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the food and the company, and plan to take the pastry class as soon as they are settled into their new location.

Portuguese cooking experience
We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening learning to cook some traditional Portuguese dishes. Our chef-for-the-night spoke excellent English and guided as through making three different dishes. The highlight was probably sitting down with our newly made friends and a couple of glasses of wine to consume our endeavours.
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 :)
Love, Life, Laughter; Lisbon
Life!! What better way to enjoy the love of food and wine, laughing with the chef and the other chef wannabes during the preparation of a wonderful culinary experience that is so Portugal, so Lisbon. This was definitely one of our highlights of our trip to Portugal
