Portugal Food Tours
The Portuguese diet includes many staples of traditional Mediterranean cuisine and features 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. (It’s worth visiting Portugal just to try one of these!). Portuguese cuisine varies from region to region, but one thing remains constant: the love of good, fresh food and wonderful wines, including famous stles 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 beautiful restored, others crumbling ruins to explore, all of them a sign of of a time when Portugal was a major maritime power. There is 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’re looking for a Lisbon food tour, an active trip walking and cooking in the countryside, or a visit to a UNESCO World Heritage Site—our Portugal food tours offer something for you!
