What you'll do

Before we start our cooking class I will give you a briefing about my beloved city. I am the perfect person to do it! Why? Because I truely love my city and I am a local for more than 40 years!! In my Van I will take you for a small tour near the Douro river and I will show the other part of Porto that Google sometimes forget! ;)

We will go to Foz ( where the River meets the Ocean) and Matosinhos ( small fishermans city) well known by fresh fish that arrives from the boats and goes directly to your plate and maybe one of the best in the world!

After I will take to Maia where I live with my family ( they will be excited to meet you!!)

Arrived at my house a white Porto is waiting for us!

We start the cooking process! Feel free to participate or not! ;) I will tell you everything about our amazing codfish between we are cooking! This dish finishes inside the oven and...let´s wait now!!

I don´t like to wait so it´s time to prepare our CLAMS that you will die for more, I guarantee you!! Porto is a perfect place for seafood and I´ve learned with the best!!

This is not a wine tasting experience but the wines that I provide are special..you will see!!

In the end I have two surprises for you...the dessert and....it´s a secret!! ;) ;)

Time to go back...it will take 15min only

This journey is made with LOVE and thinking about the most important part of the experience...YOU!!!
Other things to note
I want you to help me in the preparation of this dish and do it your self at home! Porto is full of expensive and low quality restaurants. Here everything is planned for best experience! ;) 00351913362139 having problems? call me

Hello I´m José and I´m graduated in Theater which makes me an excellent communicator and artist. For over 20 years I have left my mother's house and had to learn the art of cooking. Quickly it became a passion. Through much research and dedication I bring together the more traditional cuisine, which I learned from my mother, and the more modern cuisine resulting from much research and experience. Having worked in a seafood restaurant that came to be visited by the master ANTONIO BOURDAIN I acquired some techniques in the making of "sea food". When you taste it you will die for more! ;)

This experience was truly amazing. We had never been to Portugal and also knew no one. But the experience with Jose and Ines was like meeting up with old friends and getting to know the area through them. The cooking and the meal was amazing. We brought our two young boys (6 and 7) and they were included and helped to make the food. They still say that this was one of the best things they have done (and we went on a boat :-)). We also did not have to worry about the kids as the appartment was kid safe and they were able to play with Jose and Ines little daughter. We even went to a playground with them after dinner. The desert was magical and I do not want to spoil any surprises. I would 100% recommend this experience. Something you will not forget and think back to and smile about for many years to come!

This was an extra special experience with extra special people :) José and Inês are super welcoming, I loved prepping alongside them, and sharing dinner, stories and laughs made time pass too quickly. Saw places I wouldn't have seen on my own, learned insider tips on bacalhau from a passionate cook, plus culture, music, primer to port and how to prepare my favorite clams. Will carry your friendship and love of Porto in my heart 'til we meet again <3

What an amazing experience! Since the very first moment I met José, I knew that it was going to be a great experience. And it was, indeed! José is passionate about his country and its recipes, you can feel it when he is explaining step by step how to cook bacalhau. José and his wife Inês are great hosts. They opened their home to us and made us feel like family. I highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Porto who wants to have a proper local experience.

José and Inés were amazing hosts! José knows a lot about Portuguese cuisine and explained us a lot of interesting things about the ingredients we used to cook. He really took care of us and made sure we were having a good time! The food was incredibly good! And the wines were really nice as well. We felt at home!
