About your host, Zé: "I live in the very center of Lisboa with my beautiful Brazilian/Italian girlfriend Priscilla. I developed my love for food while growing up in a typical Portuguese family. My passion for cooking comes mainly from my passion for eating and from the joy of social interaction around the table."

What to expect
This was my first experience with Eatwith, and Ze did not dissapoint. He is passionate about Portuguese food and wine, and he cooked an excellent multi-source meal with wine-pairings. He is a font of knowledge about Portuguese culture, and a great host. It was only my second day in Lisbon, and sitting down to eat with Ze was the perfect introduction to the culture. In addition to being a great cook, he is an excellent conversationalist, and he has no problem balancing a room full of different personalities. I can definitely recommend Ze for your next Eatwith experience!
Ze was happy to change the itinerary on our whim, great guy, very knowledgeable and lots of fun.
Great food, wine, & conversation. A wonderful introduction to Lisbon & Portugal.
I had an absolutely fabulous dinner with Zé and 2 other guests that I didn't know before the night. The dinner lasted around 5 hours, but it didn't seem long! It was so much fun connecting with Zé about his life, food, wine, his family, everything. And the food was so good! I highly recommend him and will definitely use EatWith again.
