Hi everyone! My name is Óscar and I'm 27. After a life-changing decision of leaving my 9-to-5 consulting job I'm currently a Culinary Arts student in Lisbon. I'm an easy going person with a huge love for food and keen to share its stories either with you in my kitchen, or while on a journey through the Portuguese food regions or even in my beloved city during a visit to Lisbon's local markets ;)
I'm in my twenties
Culinary Arts student and former consultant
What to expect at Óscar's place
Oscar, Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in reply. I am so sorry....the email was in my spam/junk folder! Thank you so kindly for hosting us in your home and for the amazing meal! We had a great time and I would LOVE to work with you again!! Looking forward to you visiting my cooking school in Canada:) Steffannee
What a pleasure it was to spend the day with Óscar! My husband and I had the chance to check out a local market and make a nice lunch at Óscar's apartment. Our meal felt very authentic and was delicious. Óscar was a very gracious host from start to finish and we would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone who would like a chance to experience a real taste of Portugal.
I can't say enough about my wonderful Portuguese cooking workshop with the talented and awesome Chef Óscar Cabral of Lisbon, Portugal! He is a marvelously warm and inviting person with a winning personality excited to share his culture and skills. He is absolutely passionate about Portugal! Oscar spent a day with me sharing techniques and recipes for classic Portuguese family recipes (including olive oil pressed at his Grandparents home in Northern Portugal). We chopped, puréed, caramelized, flambé, shared stories and then ate a most delicious meal! An absolute highlight of my trip was meeting, learning and spending time with Oscar. Thank you Oscar for an exceptional day I'll never forget!
