This experience is perfect for guests traveling with small or big groups, and also for families with kids! :)

If you are visiting Porto alone, it’s a great way to meet people from all over the world!

I will happily welcome you to my home, where we have lots of natural light, a calm area prepared with everything we need for messy and fun baking time!

Hosting is a passion and I have been doing this all my life with friends and family and so to call it a job: is a dream come true.

To start our experience, we will talk a little bit about me and my family since this is a recipe that belongs to my grandmothers and we have been doing it for years, so you can understand the uniqueness and how lucky I was when growing up eating these amazing Pastéis.

This is a hands-on class, we will bake everything from scratch as a group with my help! That is the most important part, we will create the most amazing Pastel de Nata because we will put lots of love, time and care into them. Everybody will help, we will take turns and I will give you a lot of fun facts regarding the story about them and who created

Keep in mind:
You don't need to be a baker to do this experience - the recipe is simple and I will guide you through all the process

Hello!

I'm Joana, 31, born and raised in Porto, a lover of all things cooking and baking related, travel enthusiast and a Tourism Management graduate.

I love my city, our traditions and I know a lot about it since I never lived anywhere else.

Office working style it's not my thing - hosting, teaching, learning, meeting new people everyday, telling stories and hearing fabulous adventures from fellow travelers are my passions.

I come from a traditional (and by traditional, of course I mean a very loud) Portuguese family with a deep love for homemade dishes.

My grandmothers were AMAZING in the kitchen and being able to grow up with these unique family owned recipes has been so special - I welcome you to enter this world of love, good food and endless stories.

Can't wait to meet you!

Joana was a friendly host and very passionate about her work. So the result of our cooking was amazing. Your Portugal experience wouldn't be complete without a cooking class in Portuguese cuisine, it was an excellent experience!
