Traditional Algarve Cooking Class, from the Market to the Table
Taste the traditions of the Algarve
Begin your visit with a stop at a local market where your host, an Algarvian chef, will teach you your way around the stalls and how to choose the best ingredients for the dish of the day: cataplana. The cataplana is actually the traditional pan used to prepare a regional seafood delicacy, so you will choose the proteins, vegetables and herbs based on Algarvian customs and your taste, and head back to the kitchen to get working. Learn the ins and outs of Portuguese cooking, the chef’s hidden secrets, all while sipping local wine and sampling bites along the way. End the experience lunching on the final product and relaxing around the table, the Portuguese way!
