Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
"To cook is not a service, it is a way to love the others" (Mia Couto, Mozambican writer) I love to eat, and I love to cook! I live in the very center of Lisboa with my beautiful Brazilian/Italian girlfriend Priscilla, and we host at our own home, our kitchen, our garden full of spices and vegetables, in the living room where we either eat by ourselves or with big groups of friends and family. For dinners and cooking classes we may also welcome friends and family to share our meals and friendships. I developed my love for food while growing up in a typical Portuguese family. The passion for cooking comes mainly from the passion for eating, and this latter comes a lot from the joy of the social interaction around the table. :) I cook typical dishes the traditional way, and also often blend ingredients and techniques from other cultures and latitudes.

What to expect at Zé's place
Ze was a wonderful guide --- he was very thoughtful and bought special gluten free bread for my wife, He was very knowlegegable of Lisbon history, and took us on a wonderful tour over 6.5 miles on our watches. he helped us find clean bathrooms, tried all kinds of different foods and helped up with a Uber to get back to our hotel ---- Just a wonderful day -----
Une superbe soirée chez Zé. L’accueil avec un verre de muscat sur sa terrasse, ses explications sur l’histoire et la gastronomie portugaises, l’histoire de sa famille, ses conseils de visites à Lisbonne, tout était chaleureux et très agréable. Les 3 recettes que nous avons cuisinées ensemble et que nous avons partagé autour de vins locaux étaient succulents avec des ingrédients locaux et très frais. Merci Zé !!!
