Portuguese food is becoming well known worldwide. The rush to visit the country for its diversity of culinary culture it’s not only boosting local businesses but also improving traditional recipes – making them delicious gourmet meals.

Yes, Lisbon is becoming a top foodie destination in Europe, not only for its mouth watering food and diversity, but also for all the restaurants and food experiences popping up all over the city. From food tours, to supper clubs and cooking classes. If you travel for food, Portugal will become one of your favorite destinations. We chose traditional Portuguese cuisine classes, pastry classes and (our most dearest one) vegan and vegetarian cooking classes.

Have a look at the 4 Lisbon Cooking Classes we think every foodie traveler should do when visiting Lisbon:

1. Pastel de Nata Workshop

The traditional “pastel de nata” (Portuguese custard tart) is not only a must try when visiting Portugal, but it’s also a must do cooking class in Lisbon.

Learning the secrets of this traditional pastry with Ana & Gonçalo is a morning well spent. They also teach an extra Portuguese sweet according to the season. Soft drinks are included in this cooking class experience.

One of the reasons people do this Pastel de Nata Cooking Class is that they are left with the skills to be able to do it at home. Ana teaches a secret recipe that allows people to bake the Pastel de Nata like professionals.

Vegan Pastel de Nata Cooking Class is also available (contact us: info@foodiebookings.com)

2. Portuguese Cuisine Cooking Class with Visit to Market

Fan of Portuguese food? This cooking class is for you!

You will visit a local market where an introduction to local ingredients is made: how we chose food according to the season, the smell and texture. It’s truly a fun ride 🙂

After the market, you will learn to prepare a seafood and meat dish the exact way the Portuguese do it at home. You can choose the traditional “cataplana“, a codfish dish or a traditional meet stew. Wine pairing is included as well as lunch. You will also learn how to bake a traditional sweet (which will be the dessert).

This cooking class in Lisbon has vegetarian and gluten-free options available

3. Portuguese Cooking Class with Dinner Included

This cooking class is similar to the Portuguese Cuisine Cooking Class (with visit to local market), but it takes place in the evening. Although it doesn’t have a visit to the market, it has dinner included.

You will learn to prepare a Portuguese seafood and meat dish, as well as a dessert. The main course may depend on the season as the Chefs like to use local products.

Wine pairing is also included.

4. Vegan Cooking Class (World Cuisine)

Sofia is a person every foodie traveler should meet. Take my word on this one.

Her passion for healthy food and relaxed lifestyle got her to dedicate her life  to her bio farm in Sintra. This is where she teaches her cooking classes and does her vegetarian and vegan food experiences.

As a traveler, Sofia decided to share her world cuisine knowledge with other people and so the Vega Cooking Class was born. Taking this cooking class you will learn to cook vegan food from either Portugal, Latin America, North Africa, India, Mediterranean – or even a little bit of everything.

I hope you enjoyed to learn more about our cooking classes in Lisbon. Like I always say, food is the best way to discover a country’s culture 🙂
