Traditional food workshop
Become a true Portuguese Chef!
We would like you to live the experience of a true Lisbon’ market as a local and take some of the unique concepts of the traditional Portuguese cuisine and the way Portuguese really live it, how they eat and how they cook. The are two rituals truly unmatched by any other culture, except maybe the Italian, where everything we do in life is centered around food.
So first, you will meet up with Rita that will take you to her favorite traditional market (Arroios), where she grew up and knows all the tricks of the very best food stands around. After she will take you to a renewed market, the new generation markets, in the neighboorhood where she lives now (Campo de Ourique). She offers not only the perspective of the markets but some interesting points on the neighboorhoods where they are settled.
Then you will meet up with Carol in a local restaurant, where she will give you unique insights on how to cook traditional Portuguese food, it’s smells and flavours.
She is a teacher in one of the best Culinary Schools of Portugal, so she knows what she is doing. With wine in the mix, let’s now cook and eat!
We will visit:
– Mercado de Arroios – a traditional market with food stands with all the fresh produce from the Lisbon region. Fish, meat, fruits, vegetables, you name it If you can eat it, they probably sell it since 1942.
– Mercado de Campo de Ourique – a hybrid concept that mixes the traditional food stands with fresh produce stands. Very cool and cosy.

Rita grew up in a true traditional Lisbon’ market, mingling with the people of the food stalls and being herself a sales person for her mother butchery. She knows the market life all too well and knows how to get the best ingredients. Besides that she has been doing tours of Lisbon for the last 6 years and is very passionate about her city. Carolina studied Math, but left the numbers to devote herself to cooking. She is now a Chef and a teacher at one of the best Cooking Schools in Portugal.
