The family heritage conveyed to me the taste for making traditional dishes, the ecological garden and life in nature. Combining the typical dishes of Portuguese gastronomy with its cultural origins is an activity of research and shared practice that I do frequently, individually or in a group.

Experiência inexcedível com a simpatia da Maria Manuela, grande cozinheira, professora e contadora de histórias. A paciência para aturar uma família de 7, com miúdos e graúdos entusiasmados com o polvo, a horta e a recolha de tomates e ervas aromáticas, o fantástico "murro na batata" e a óptima entrada de abóbora recheada e a saída de maçã embrulhada em massa folhada. Fantástico e altamente recomendável.

Maria is wonderful! In this experience, she brought us through the history of pulpo, her life, and her house. The 3 types of octopus are all delicious! You get to try cooking all 3 and tasting them all. I can't say which was my favorite, because they were so delicious, and at least one version was unexpected and incredible. Maria explained the methods, the reasons for different naming conventions, and shows you how to cook it all in her incredible wood-fire oven. Combining the food with the amazing conversations and connection, we had a really wonderful evening.

Senti-me em casa. Amena conversa ao ritmo de um bom cozinhado acompanhado por bom vinho, com tempo para sentir, conhecer, surpreender, saborear.

Even though we already knew something about cooking octopus we learned a knew recipe. We also had the great chance to learn a few tricks and to use of wood-fired oven was mighty good. To complete the feast we prepared vegetables grown in the backyard. Maria’s place is absolutely gorgeous and comfortable. Very easy to get there. After all the cooking we had a great meal, a great wine and a lovely desert.

    More tips

    We speak english or Francais. "Around the Octopus" is based on Lourinhã's ancestral "catching the octopus" and its culinary practices. It's part of the region's domestic economy, from the coast to the interior, so it takes place in a family atmosphere, in a traditional kitchen with a wood oven.
