What you'll do

We will meet in the center of Porto and drive to Maia where we live. An amazing city, a mix of countryside and city, here you can feel a bit of peace. Once we arrive at home we will do a toast with Port wine and be ready to start our baking . After some talk its time to 'get your hands on work'. I will first explain you all the steps before we start cooking. We divide this workshop in 2 different stages, first you will learn how to do the puff pastry, the base for our Pastel de nata and on the second stage the filling!! All of you will participate in the baking .We clarify that we don't have individual work areas, but that we all work together as a team.
With our babies in the oven for 15 minuts we will prepare our drinks, coffe, tea or a genuine white Port wine to enjoy with our Pastel de Nata . All participants make at least 2 pastries by hand - spreading the dough with a specific Pastry technique, filled with the cream and oven :) I am sure that the result will be delicious. After the pastel de nata is done we will finally
tasted and realize this is the best nata you ever eat. After this amazing moment its time to come back to porto and enjoy an amazing afternoon by yourself. We say goodbye each other but we are now friends for life

Hello!! I'm Inês from south of Portugal but living in Porto for 4 years. I'm Passionated to showing people the best we have in our country. I love to cook, specially sweets, cakes, candies all this wonders. As foodie, who have traveled the world looking for the best dishes and desserts i can assure you that Portugal is the perfect country to taste the best desserts in the world.
I am not a professional baker but my baking experience for more than 10 years makes me a very sweet person with the best hands for sweets. Everytime we had a familiar event i was in charge to do all the food and of course desserts and people just love it. I start selling my cakes and sweets for the small shops around my city. Pastel de Nata, the most famous and delicious sweet in Portugal, has became a passion for me once i try to bake it for the first time.

I can 100% recommend this experience! Inês is such a wonderful host, super friendly with a warm hearted character. She picked us up right on time, explained every little detail of preparing “pastel de nata”, shared some personal moments from her and her daughter and really made us feel at home. On top of that she shared some great tips where and how to explore Porto. Thanks Inês! 🙏

Inês is very nice and warmharted. We have spent great time in Inês's cozy home. She took care about us very friendly so I felt like I was invited to my local friend's house. All the cooking process were well organized and easy to follow, not to mention a great taste of homemade Nata. I strongly recommend this unique course! 현지인의 집에서 직접 홈메이드 쿠킹을 처음부터 끝까지 배울 수 있습니다~ 호스트분이 굉장히 친절하신 여성분이시라 혼자오신 여성여행객 분들도 걱정없이 참여하셔도 될 것 같아요~ 특히 부모님이랑 같이 오신 분들에게도 추천드립니다! 호스트가 차로 픽업을 오기 때문에 걸어다니기 힘들어하시는 부모님과 함께 하기에 좋을 것 같아요~

Our couple had an extraordinary time in Porto with Inês, experiencing a baking Porto’s famous Pastel de Nata. Inês is friendly host and We really appreciated her tip for further trip plus nice story and attentive guide for successful result of bakery. I would highly recommend if you want to get to close to Porto’s famous bakery and want to spend a few hours in a valuable way in your short holidays. 포르토에 휴가 겸 잠시 방문하였다가, 함께 포르투갈에 유명한 파스텔 드 나타 쿠킹 클래스에 참여하였습니다. 호스트가 굉장히 친절하고, 재밌는 이야기도 많이 해주시고, 특히 한국인 손님들이 많아서, 한국에 대해서도 알고 계셔요. 끝나고 함께 만든 에그 타르트를 먹는데, 한국 손님이 8개나 먹은 레코드가 아직 깨지지 않고 있다네요 :) 적극 추천하는 클래스입니다!

My husband and I booked this experience last minute after another experience was rescheduled to a later time and I'm so happy it worked out the way it did! Inês welcomed us into her family's home like we were old friends reuniting. You’ll learn step by step how to prepare the traditional Portuguese pastry that you've likely seen and tasted everywhere by this point and have been curious to learn how to make - now you can and have so much fun doing so! The experience and class was well structured and the time flew by! We could've spent the whole day with Inês - she was so lovely, warm, and good-spirited!

This was a wonderful and unique opportunity to learn how to make Pastel de Nata. There are other places that you can learn from, but it was very special to learn in the home of José & Inês. We could not have gotten this from another experience. Inês was so welcoming and treated us like friends right from the start. Do yourself a favor and book this experience.
