Blog

OLÁ OLÁ, hello hello, bonjour bonjour, and so on.

Here at Lisbon Cooking Academy we like to do things well and Portuguese. For us, this is learning the rules and going a little further, with dedication, dedication and a pinch of obsession. We talk about that good obsession that makes us jump out of bed to improve vegan cream cake recipe, to create inspiring events and workshops for people from all over the world, to bring even more different people to our table.

The same energy has led us to create this blog, where we want to share what we do best here. At school, in Lisbon and through this country. Let’s talk about food, routines, routes, people who are doing amazing things for us to eat and drink, fashions and traditions; even other unusual facts and curiosities that we love, to take in the pocket and share the meal.

So with so much love down here, why the hell did we write in English? To reach out to more people, people from all over, mirroring the diversity of our students, friends and the world of today. We invite you to read our texts and, if you have any questions, write to us. Best, pay a visit and come learn more. We are here for this. And to eat better and better, of course.

Pastel de Nata. From posh to hippie

Pastel de Nata. From posh to hippie

When we thought of writing about Pastéis de nata, we had to think twice, even three times. There is so much information out there about them, both online and in real life, that makes it a bit hard to create something inspiring and unique. Challenge accepted. That’s why we will share not only the History of these beauts, but also…

Portuguese people are weird

Portuguese people are weird

And this is what we love to eat   We Portuguese people are weird.

All very true. In the movies. In…
