Our cooking holidays in Algarve offer a comprehensive hands-on experience designed to teach you to make splendid Portuguese food, covering basic cooking techniques and inspiring you with recipes that are authentic and traditional.
Cooking classes are fun to attend. You learn new dishes, make new friends, and take home new techniques and ideas to make cooking at home more enjoyable. We show you to carefully select the ingredients so you will be able to do it yourself and to prepare all the recipes easily.
You have the chance to experience the Mediterranean lifestyle. Visiting some of the best local food markets, you are able to select your own fresh products and choose all the ingredients we need for the cooking sessions.
This experience starts with a visit to the market, where you can choose the products that you use during the activity. The products used in our activities are preferably of organic origin, from local farmers and from the season, whenever possible.
You learn the recipes step by step and participate in all parts of the process, from the selection of the ingredients in the local market and the farm to the final product and posterior tasting.
Using local products with excellent quality and the presentation of the meal are also very important, as is explained during the class.
We also produce some of the ingredients that we use in our activities on our organic farm.
- Fish and seafood cataplana cooking class + lunch
- Octopus and sweet potato cataplana cooking class + lunch
- Three-course cooking class + lunch
You have the opportunity to use your five senses: see, hear, smell, touch, and taste everything, including the final prepared dish.
We strive to use seasonal vegetables grown locally at Monte do Álamo or buy from local farmers. Throughout your cooking holidays in Algarve, you learn about the ingredients and the traditions around the recipes.
Transport (We can organize transfer services in case participants don’t have their own transportation — please request in advance.)
