What you'll do

Whether you are an amateur cook or a more seasoned chef, these classes will help you dive into the Portuguese gastronomic heritage and expand your culinary skills.
We propose a private cooking class in a local home where, together with a local family, you will cook a typical Portuguese meal and then share it with them around the table accompanied with wine and plenty of friendly conversation.
This experience can be so much more than a cooking lesson, it's a tactile experience that gives you a feel (and taste) for a country's culture.

포르투에서 할 수 있는 최고의 경험! 상벤투역에서 우버 타면 11유로 살짝 넘습니다.(왕복 23유로 정도) 교통이 편하지는 않지만 포르투갈 가정집에서는 어떤 식재료를 쓰고, 어떤 방법으로 요리하는지 알 수 있어서 매우 좋았습니다. 전식, 메인, 후식 다 좋았고 한국에서도 다 따라해볼 수 있는 메뉴였습니다. 파울라와 남편, 동생 모두 영어를 잘하고 또 쉬운 영어를 사용하기 때문에 의사소통에 문제가 없었습니다. 영어가 안되면 스페인어도 사용했고요. 추천합니다.

It was great experience to visit Portuguese home and join the cooking roasted octopus and chorizo. I learned how to soften the octopus legs :) Paula and her family really welcome us and We’re enjoy the dinner and conversation. It’s strongly recommended who enjoys traditional portuguese culture (foods and wines).

We met the family of Paula in her home. We felt from the first minute very welcomed. The food was great and we had great talks and alot to laugh. It was a special experience. She explained the recipe and the history of the food she cooked for us. The only thing we missed a bit was that we were not involved in the cooking of this delicious dinner. Nevertheless we warmly recommend to try it - it's worth it.

Paula and her family were excellent hosts and showed us a bit about how Portuguese food is made. We felt welcomed in her home. It was also nice to have that bit of a personal connection to Porto.
