We'll make three dishes from that list: Pastéis de bacalhau, Pataniscas de bacalhau, Açorda de bacalhau, Bacalhau à Braz, Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá, Bacalhau com natas and Bacalhau com broa, or others season dishes - all served with fresh salad. I'll share my knowledge about our real and ancestral regional cuisine.

Gebucht war ein Kochkurs - bekommen haben wir einen unvergesslichen Abend, neue Freunde, ein Einblick in das Leben in Portugal..... wir warten darauf, dass uns Maria und ihr Mann in der Schweiz besuchen kommen. Hoffentlich haben sie es in der Zwischenzeit geschafft all die Herrlichkeiten mit Hilfe der Familie und Freunden aufzuessen ( es hätte für eine Fussballmannschaft gereicht 😄). Thanks you for everything! Marianne and Georges

Antónia and Luis were wonderful hosts! They are warm and welcoming, and made me feel like I have a family away from home. I had a great time learning about Lisbon through their eyes, hearing their stories, and sharing a delicious meal together. I would recommend this experience to food-lovers or anyone who enjoys making friends during their travels.

Antonia and her husband were the best hosts we could ask for. From the minute you walked in you were welcomed as an old friend and by the end of the night I really felt like an old friend. They provided a wonderful spread of food and drinks and were overly generous. She is a very knowledgeable cook and explained all the details and history of the cod. She allowed you to get as involved as you wished. It was my friend’s birthday and she went out of her way to make a special cake. Overall it was a wonderful experience!

We had the best bacalau (codfish) in Lisbon. Antónia and her husband were wonderful hosts. Antónia is a great chef/teacher. They even made a birthday cake for my mom who was celebrating her birthday. Highly recommend this experience!!!!
