Then enjoy your warm tarts along with a drink! • Coffee, tea or sour cherry liqueur are included • The class takes place inside a real, award-winning Portuguese bakery! • Communal cooking class and tasting for up to 8 people • João has his own bakery in downtown Lisbon and grew up in the hospitality industry
About your host, João: "My crib was on the ice-cream counter at my Dad's restaurant. At 7, I was brewing coffee. At 11, customers said my Sangria was legendary (my Dad would get angry that I'd try a sip before serving). At 13, I started baking Portuguese bread and pastries at my family's bakery."
Outre le célèbre Pastel de Nata, nous aimerions que vous essayiez d'autres spécialités pour lesquelles notre boulangerie est célèbre. Ce sont des gâteries avec l'histoire!
Dégustation après les cours: 3 Pastel de Nata & Ginja Liqueur / Café Après le cours de cuisine, vous pourrez déguster les fruits de votre propre travail. Dégustez au moins 3 Pastel de Nata, sortis du four. Nous associerons ces pâtisseries crémeuses à Ginjinha, liqueur de cerise aigre typique des environs de Lisbonne. Ou, si vous préférez, avec une bonne tasse de café ou un rafraîchissement de votre choix.
João was really lively and helpful and we had a great time. He gave us great advice and paid attention to each person on the call. The pastries were really good and we’ll definitely make them again - thank you so much for a really fun evening.
This event was absolutely fantastic. I puchased 6 "seats" for a private birthday treat for my daughter, who loves all things Portuguese. She and her friends had a riot (alcohol may have been involved!) on their virtual pastel lesson, and Joao was the perfect host, charming, patient, funny, informative.
João was the perfect host - attentive, fun and informative, we had a great time for a friend's birthday party. Thank you so much João!
