This is the best way to know the Portuguese gastronomy and a huge part of our culture. We will meet at Lisbon Cooking Academy facilities and then we will walk to the local market (+/-8min walking) to buy fresh ingredients for our lunch. During the visit to the market we will chat about the richness of Portuguese products, their diversity and their role on the local gastronomy. After the visit, we will head back to Lisbon Cooking Academy, where we will cook our own lunch. The menu will be totally Portuguese, using exclusive high quality fresh and local Portuguese ingredients, the menu will incorporate dishes from north to south Portugal. The menu will vary according to the available products at the market, however you can count on a great starter, a fantastic mind blowing main course and a delicious dessert. During the class, we will share with you all the tips and secrets about the recipes and in the end, we will eat our own food paired with red and white wine or soft drinks. Wine and snacks will be available during the class: cause lets be honest...the best way to cook is with a glass of wine in your hand :) We cannot wait to meet you!
