Bené is a wonderful host who will let you be as involved as you wish in making a variety of wonderful foods while having great conversations. Her home may look a little of the tourist track, but it is very easy to reach and has a great view. If you are looking for a chance to experience some real life with a local person, this is the experience for you.

This was one of the most wonderful time that I had in Porto. Not the whole process, but I could learn how to cook these awesome dishes (In my case, amazing seafood and breads for appetizer, pork dish as main and chocolate cake as dessert). Every dishes were paired with its own wine. Food was veryx3 delicious so I can say that whole night. I’m sure that Bené is really good cooker. Furthermore, the atmosphere of Bené’s house made me feel like at home. I was supposed to end this experience at 4p.m. but we didn’t stop talking until 5p.m. If there was no flight at that evening, I would stay longer. You can feel that how comfortable it was. This place is little bit far from the downtown, so it’s not crowded and you can see the fantastic city view at Bené’s house! I’m so sad that I had this experience only once. If I visit Porto again, I will join this again for sure.

Bene was a fantastic host; she immediately makes you feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable in her home. She went out of her way to make sure we were sufficiently fed and very well watered. Her passion and knowledge for cooking and food was infectious and me and my boyfriend had a fantastic time. The food and company were marvelous! If you are looking for something a little different and a slice of authentic Porto, I'd absolutely recommend!

You couldn't ask for a more authentic; homely Portuguese cooking experience, than with Bené! We enjoyed helping make a number of dishes, from all over Portugal. We were welcomed into Bené's home as if we were close friends. We loved sharing stories about our travels and eating the food we had prepared, along with some delicious wines. If you're looking for something really special to do while in Porto, look no further!

Bene maakt het een persoonlijke ervaring. Ze heeft ons zelfs persoonlijk opgehaald vanaf het metrostation! We hebben samen typisch portugeese gerechten gemaakt. Daarbij maakte Bene er een gezellige en smakelijke ervaring van. We hebben geleerd over de Portugeese keuken maar bovenal ook gewoon een speciale ervaring.
