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.
I bought a market tour and cooking class for my partner as a birthday present for while we were in Lisbon and I was really pleased I made this choice. We had a really great day, seeing the market from the view of people who lived in the city and learning to cook 4 great dishes. The class was exactly the right level - we have a bit of experience cooking but never with Portuguese food and equipment, and it was a really interesting way to learn about the culture of a country. Luis was very helpful, giving us recommendations for the rest of our time away and sending us pictures and the recipies we made. Highly recommended
