"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

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!

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.
