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

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

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!

Professional tour, good atmosphere, very interactive, interesting background information on the recipes, well-equipped kitchen, good location, good balance between cooking and dining time. We’ve received the recipes for the dishes we made, so now the fun can start at home as well.

We had a great time participating in a cooking class with cooking Lisbon. My husband and I booked somewhat last minute and are so happy that we had the opportunity to have this experience. We made some delicious authentic Portuguese food and drank some delicious wine! Chef Pedro was so kind and helpful in teaching us how to make each of the dishes. In addition, Filipe, one of the founders was fun and entertaining. We had such a wonderful time and would recommend this experience to anyone visiting Lisbon!

My husband and I did a class with my in-laws on our last night in Lisbon, and it was the perfect way to end our trip! The chef was an excellent guide as we cooked our four courses, and made it all comfortable and enjoyable. Luis and Filipe were hilarious and took care to make sure our wine glasses were full and that everyone was having a good time. We met wonderful people, prepared beautiful dishes, and learned about Portuguese culture in a way we wouldn't have been able to otherwise. It really is a blast!

This was an incredible experience. The wine was flowing the the time we walked in the door till we left. The cooking was both fun and informative. We even learned a few cooking tricks along the way. However, the best part was talking over dinner with our fellow cook mates. Highly recommended.
