Mama’s Dinner

Here you don’t have to work, you will just enjoy a real meal of Portuguese comfort food prepared by a Portuguese Mama. Mama Isabel will join you for dinner, and with her background in Anthropology you can count on a lot of information about Portugal’s history and facts. Mama Isabel has always been an amazing cook, so when she retired she couldn’t help but spend the last 4 years cooking professionally in the private restaurant of one of the largest banks in Portugal. Now she is definitely retired (or so we think!), so it’s our luck that she can come and cook for us, being our founder’s Mama.
Mama Isabel will cook whatever she decides in the day of the event. Portuguese mamas are like this, so dinner will be a surprise! However, you can count on a starter course, a main course, and a dessert.

Menu: Starter course + Main course + Dessert (Wine and soft drinks included)

Highlights of the Cooking Class

What to expect: A dinner of Portuguese comfort food made by a Portuguese Mama and to learn
a little bit more about Portugal with her. Probably you will share the table with people that you don’t know.  If you wish, Mama can share the recipes with you: she knows them only by heart, so be welcome to bring a pen.

Duration: 2:30 hours (Starting hour: 8pm; Ending hour: 10:30pm – estimated)
