Tinned fish, wine and ginjinha, suckling pig and other “petiscos”
We will take you to taste some of the traditional specialities of the country. A journey through some Portuguese flavours.
Tinned Portuguese fish, internationally recognized for its quality, has inspired local chefs to create new recipes. On this tour, you will try what are considered great “petiscos” in a place whose owner is also the author of an award-winning cookbook. Sardines, mackerel or mussels, here you’ll find a range of different flavours.
Then you can sample traditional ginjinha (sour cherry brandy) and visit the old city market.
And to get an idea of the versatility of the wines of Portugal, we’ll visit a cellar for some wine tastings, namely Port or Moscatel.
Then we will take you to taste the liqueurs, jams and cheeses of the Azores islands.
And we will finish in a typical lisboan “tasca” to taste the traditional Bairrada suckling pig sandwich and another delicious savoury “petisco”, accompanied by draught beer (an imperial) or a glass of vinho verde, or as most locals do there with a lovely lemonade. And then a custard tart in one of the best bakeries in the city.
