What you'll do

First of all we are going to meet at Lisbon Bus station, then we’ll travel together to my city, a perfect moment to get to know each other (it will cost you around 6 euros the bus from Lisbon to Torres Vedras). As soon as we arrive we visit my garden, say hello to the fishes and the frogs, take some aromatics for the menu and finally we get in the house directly to my lab –my kitchen . We will take a "toast" tee and taste some Vitalizing snacks wile I present you my project and it’s main ingredients: whole grains as brow rice and quinoa; vegetable proteins, as tofu, seitan, temphe; magnetic no sugar deserts; and the menu. Then you will fil free to choose one of my aprons or your note book, to be stand and to participate or just have a seat and watch and smell the delicious things I’m going to prepare for you. Little by little you are going to understand the importance of choosing the best vegetables, the way to wash , to cut and to cook them. How to use best a pressure cooker, an iron pan the solar cooker, and so on. Finally we are going to seat at the table and eat the healthy colourful delicious menu. Please fill free to ask anything you feel the need about the menu or about Vitalizing Cook.
