In this activity, that will take place in a traditional farm, Monte do Álamo (in Tavira), we will learn how to prepare a delicious meal using always the best local products. The activity starts with a visit to a local market where we will buy together the ingredients for the recipes. The local market offers a wide variety of fresh produce from the region, from fish and seafood, vegetables, olive oil, honey from the hills of Algarve, local cheese and many, many other local delicatessen. (afternoon cooking classes don't include the visit to the market as the market is open only in the morning) In the kitchen of the farmhouse Monte do Álamo participants will take part in the confection of traditional recipes in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Next, everyone is invited to share the delicious meal prepared with the hosts and guests, in a beautiful setting, always paired with great Portuguese wine. The recipes used in our classes are part of the rich and healthy Mediterranean diet, characteristic from the South of Portugal: Alentejo and Algarve.
Hi! I'm Mariana. I was raised in the South of Portugal, Algarve, where the sun shines almost all year round and the temperatures invite to live the outdoors. Having a big family with strong culinary traditions, I have spent a good part of the family gatherings in the kitchen, watching, tasting and helping the "experts". I've created Taste Algarve in 2012 when I realized that some of the local traditions and much of our rich gastronomic heritage were in danger to disappear and . I invite you to come and experience a special day in our farm house, cooking and eating with a local family.
