Discover the Authentic Flavors of the Algarve: A Culinary Journey with Cataplana Delights


From Algarve - Starts at 180.00 €


Come and enjoy an unforgettable day immersed in the authentic flavors of the Algarve! Our "Cooking Class & Lunch at the Farm" experience offers a 3-course menu and beverages, along with a guided visit to Tavira Market. Discover the culinary secrets of the region as we explore the treasures of Tavira, learning about its culture, the beauty of the Ria Formosa, and the pleasures of fresh seafood and shellfish.

We'll start our day by immersing ourselves in the aromas and colors of Tavira Market, where you'll have the opportunity to select the freshest, highest quality ingredients for our cooking class. Meet local producers and discover the diversity of seasonal products the region offers, from seafood to agricultural produce grown in the fertile lands of the Algarve.

From there, we'll head to a charming farm, where the tranquil rural setting provides the perfect backdrop for our culinary experience. 

We'll explore the secrets of Algarvian cuisine, preparing delicious dishes that showcase the fresh and vibrant flavors of the region. Let yourself be enveloped by the aroma of fresh herbs, extra virgin olive oil, and freshly caught seafood as we prepare a truly memorable meal.

Additionally, we can't forget to mention the cataplana, an icon of Algarvian cuisine. This copper clam-shaped pot is used to cook traditional dishes, where the ingredients are slowly simmered in their own juices, resulting in intense flavors and incredible textures. Discover the history behind this emblematic utensil as we explore its preparation techniques and enjoy a classic dish prepared in the cataplana.

After our cooking class, we'll sit down to enjoy the fruits of our labor, savoring a full lunch that celebrates the authentic flavors of the Algarve. Enjoy every bite as we share stories and laughter, celebrating the richness of local gastronomy and culture.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to delve into the heart of authentic Algarve, where each dish tells a story and every meal is a celebration of the region's flavors. Join us for an unforgettable experience and discover for yourself why we've been awarded the Best Sustainable Gastronomic Tourism Experience in Portugal.
