Portugal Food Tours
Looking for a Lisbon food tour? Or Porto wine tours? We offer some of the best food and wine tours in Portugal, and we can also design custom Portugal cooking vacations made-to-order.
Portugal is one of Europe’s hottest destinations, with an amazing climate, fascinating history, friendly people, and of course amazing food that you will cook during our Portugal food tours and wines that you will savor on our Portugal wine tours.
The Portuguese diet includes many staples of traditional Mediterranean cuisine, and on our Portugal food tours you will taste fish (in particular dried cod or “bacalhau” and sardines), lean meats, an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, traditional almond pastry desserts, and the famed “pastel de nata” custard pastry. Portuguese cuisine varies from region to region, but one thing remains constant: the love of good, fresh food and wonderful wines, including famous styles of fortified wine, Port and Madeira, that both originate here.
Our Portugal cooking vacations also offer amazing discoveries. There are castles seemingly on every hilltop, some beautifully restored, others crumbling ruins to explore, all of them a sign of a time when Portugal was a major maritime power. There are fascinating art and architecture here, particularly the “Manueline” style that is characteristic of the country. And the Portuguese themselves are a friendly, down-to-earth, quietly confident people who are ready to share their country’s bounty with you, whether you are on a Lisbon food tour, a Porto wine tour, or one of our Portugal cooking vacations in the countryside.
