3 to 7 Gastronomic Programs
Our cooking holidays in Algarve offer comprehensive hands on experience designed to teach you more about Portuguese gastronomy, our local products and inspire you with recipes that are authentic and traditional.
We will take you to visit some of our local producers: olive oil; learn more about the finest salt flower crystals in the world and the beautiful salt marshes; collect your own oysters on an unique Natural Reserve; discover local vineyards and learn more about our wines, tasting! You will have the chance to experience the Mediterranean lifestyle visiting some of the best local food markets, be able to select your own fresh products and choose all the ingredients we will need for the cooking sessions.
These activities include 3 to 7 nights accommodation at Monte do Álamo, our Charming Rural Hotel in Tavira, integrated in a 7 hectares farm with beautiful views over the sea and Tavira (5 min. drive). We are certified organic producers and use our own products and from local producers in the menus we serve to our guests.
These programs are also available for clients staying in a different accommodation.
The groups are small (ideally 4 to 6 people and max 8 people), generally are a mix of couples, singles, and friends traveling together. Everyone is here to enjoy the experience of cooking, eating and meeting new people so never a problem for solo travelers. We can also organize programs for private groups.
