Portuguese cuisine features many elements found in a Mediterranean-style diet. You’ll find delicious fresh fish, various types of meat, mouth-watering fresh fruit, and plenty of fresh and preserved legumes.
Some famous sweet treats include almond pastry desserts and a custard pastry known as “pastel de nata.”
Although the dishes enjoyed are different between regions, you’ll discover that some things don’t change throughout the county. This is a nation that truly appreciates quality food, fresh ingredients, and a bottle of great wine or two.
For our hands-on cooking classes, we’ll have gorgeous local food! In Portugal, special recipes are only cooked in one specific region. For example, the Cachena steak and rice with “tarrestre” beans are typical dishes in Arcos de Valdevez.
Cachena cattle are a triple-purpose breed from Portugal and Galicia, Spain. Cachena is considerably smaller than other cattle and known for its madly delicious meat. The reason is simple the cattle are not fed the feed! These cattle feed on natural meadows in both winter and summer in well-defined areas called ‘brandas’.
The tarrestre bean is very small. It is produced in the region and used almost exclusively in the diet of the population in Arcos de Valdevez. This bean can be found in various hues, but beige is the most commonly seen color. These highly nutritious beans grow on steep, terraced slopes, and there are no automated or mechanized cultivation methods. Harvesting must be done manually, as it has been for centuries before.
Only one small region in Portugal has this special dish; nobody in Lisbon or Porto cooks it! Why is that so special? Why do we recommend eating this dish? Because we are thinking globally and acting locally. If you eat this regional dish in Arcos de Valdevez, you will have a small ecological footprint. You will be promoting the local market and incentivizing the community to preserve your culture!
These traditional dishes are deeply rooted in Portuguese culture, and recipes are often passed down between generations and cherished for their authentic origins. For example, in our last cooking class, you will learn how to make cornbread with a lady who lives in this region. The bread will be cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven!
On this tour, we explore cities, beaches & the countryside! Come to Portugal with an open mind and an empty stomach to try some of the most flavorsome dishes you’ll ever experience, from a grilled fish in front of a lovely beach, arroz de pato (duck rice) to alheira (Portuguese Jewish sausage) and green broth (potato, onion and chorizo soup).
