Traditional Portuguese Food Workshop

This tour will be divided in two parts: first the workshop will be held and later we will take a cultural tour through Lisbon. During this tour, you’ll learn how to make the famous codfish, one of the most well known dishes of portuguese cuisine. The class is entirely dedicated to salted codfish, so you can expect to learn the history and the process behind it while cooking your own lunch. In the afternoon, we will explore the Lisbon area and you will learn about its history while walking around the city center. You’ll visit the most emblematic sites of Portugal’s capital and learn about the Portuguese culture, unique heritage and traditions.
