Cooking Lessons in Portugal

Submitted by on September 2, 2012 – 8:50 amNo Comment

Discover the secrets of Portuguese cuisine in Portugal under the guidance of a Portuguese teacher — what better way for a Road Trips Foodie to spend a vacation?

This is how it unfolds with Visiting Portugal: decide on a dinner menu with your chef/guide from a list of numerous local and regional dishes, spend the morning shopping in Lisbon’s centuries old Mercado da Ribeira for the day’s freshest offerings of fish, meat and fruit.

Learn from your chef guide about what ingredients you are purchasing, and then head to the local gourmet market to pair wines, cheese, breads, and desserts with those flavors. After working with your neighbor/tutor/chef to prepare your chosen dishes in the afternoon, enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Another series of culinary lessons is offered in Portugal’s Alentejo at Refugio da Vila. Each cooking class is both a culinary and cultural experience. This is a hands-on program with each participant taking an active role (and enjoying the resulting meal).
