In this online class, I will join you and all of the other guests in your own private kitchens around the world to share some classic and tasty Portuguese recipes. Turn on your laptop, tablet or phone, select your favorite bottle of wine, and let me cook and coach alongside you, until we finish our meal together. I’ll teach you how to make my famous Tuna Paté, an easy, tasty recipe that you may serve in different ways. We will also cook one of the most beloved Portuguese recipes, Açorda Alentejana, the most flavorful soup you will ever try. But we can also adapt the class menu with different ingredients by request. Vegan and vegetarian menus are also available. Let me know your tastes and interests and for sure we will make it happen. We will travel together through the steps of each recipe, while I share with you tips, ideas and suggestions. My goal is not just to help you learn how to cook but also to give you an introduction to my beloved Portugal, from the food to the culture, history, and wines. I’d love to be the person responsible for your Lisbon Passion, and to make you want to come visit us in person once it’s safe to travel again. After your booking, you will receive an email with the list of the equipment and ingredients needed for the class, and at the end, I will send you all recipes, so you may repeat and recreate those dishes anytime you want.
My name is Joana and my passion is food. I graduated in hotel management from Estoril Higher Institute for Tourism and Hotel Studies.

Among many other interests, I love welcoming people and sharing the incredible food and wine the country of Portugal has to offer.
