"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 palates.

What to expect at Zé's place
My dining experience with Zé was AMAZING! The traditional Portuguese food he made was incredible, but most importantly - he was a spectacular host. The whole thing was a fantastic experience! I'm already excited about my next trip to Lisbon and checking out his other experiences. Thanks Zé!
We had a wonderful dinner at Zé's home. The food and wines were phantastic and Zé made us feel very comfortable with him. He was very attentive and we had very interesting conversations about several issues, including food! He also gave us good tips about Lisbon, with recommendations about restaurants and other places to visit. I would definitely recommend this experience. Thank you Zé!
