Traditional Algarve Cooking Class

Discover the “cataplana”, a uniquely Portuguese dish. You will first accompany an Algarvian chef to the open market, and choose the best clams, vegetables and herbs to prepare an exemplary cataplana. 

Back at his place, your companion will introduce you to the special pan you will use to cook. It is called “cataplana” and that’s where the dish’s name comes from. The origins of the cataplana are misty, and seem to go back to Arab times.

Enjoy sipping your wine, learning cooking secrets and cultural facts, and sharing an authentic Portuguese meal.
