What you'll do

We will cook a delicious and traditional Portuguese stew called Caldeirada, that was invented by the fisherman. We will also talk a lot about food and, since I am a restaurant critic and former Time Out magazine editor in chief, I will be glad to give you tips on where to eat, drink or go out dancing during your stay. I cook with the freshest ingredients. I buy them in one of the best markets in Lisbon, Mercado de Alvalade. All the action will take place in the kitchen, where my cookbook library is. Before the main course, Portuguese cheese from São Jorge region will be served. The drinks on offer are a craft beer made 15 minutes away from my home or red/white wine, made with Portuguese grape varieties. At the end of the meal, you will have a special old Porto, with more than 50 years of age. For dessert you can expect the best "pastéis de nata" in town.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 9 guests ages 18 and up can attend. The experience works better with a group of four persons or more, since Caldeirada should be a dish made in a big pot, with different kind of fishes.

More tips

The products cooked in Caldeirada, including fish and vegetables, are fresh and of the best quality. Please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions.
