Eat Drink Walk Lisbon: Petiscos (Portugese Tapas) Tour – Lisbon, Portugal

One of this company’s tours was reviewed by FoodTourFinder
See our review here!
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.

Price: 50 euros

Every day except Mondays, Sundays and holidays.

Departure: 11:30

Length: Three to four hours.

Eat Drink Walk Lisbon: Wine and Cheese Tour – Azeitão region (near Lisbon), Portugal

One of this company’s tours was reviewed by FoodTourFinder
See our review here!

 

Visit one of the richest wine regions near Lisbon. Besides the good red and white wines, the famous Moscatel de Setúbal is also produced here.

The tour begins with a surprising visit to one of the small producers in the region, whose wine is a well liked secret among connoisseurs. We will have a private tasting of their products.

On this route we propose also a visit to one of the most emblematic cellars of the Sado Wine region, with wine tastings and a visit to their winery.

During this day, we will also have the chance to try something different when we visit a traditional artisanal cheese producer, where you can literally  make Azeitão cheese, a cheese made from sheep’s milk, with your own hands.

You’ll make these soft cheeses with the help of an experienced local cheesemaker. Then you can taste the cheese, freshly made and others that are already semi-cured. The tasting also includes local produce and Moscatel.

At lunch time you’ll have a lunch of grilled sardines (or other fresh fish available on the market), or grilled meat in an outdoor terrace. And for dessert the famous tortas de Azeitão.

Recomendations: Bring comfortable shoes, a camera, an appetite and good spirits.

Price: 95 euros (all tastings, food and transportation included; a supplement of 10% may apply if a tour has only 2 persons); 65 euros with departure from Azeitão.

Hours: Departure from Lisbon at 10.30, return at 5.30 pm.

Eat Drink Walk Lisbon: GinjinhaTour – Lisbon, Portugal

One of this company’s tours was reviewed by FoodTourFinder
See our review here!

In this tour we get to know one of the most traditional drinks of Lisbon, ginjinha, a liqueur made with aguardente and sour cherries.

Over the course of about three hours, we walk through some of the more famous areas of the city, including Rossio, Terreiro do Paço and Restauradores.

It is thought that ginjinha was introduced to Portugal by a Galician friar and continues to be a tradition in our country. It is especially popular in Lisbon and Óbidos.

We will visit the oldest and most iconic taverns, and also a place where ginjinha is served in edible chocolate cups, a new trend that started with the Chocolate Festival in Óbidos. We’ll have time also for a pastel de nata (custard tart).

In all locations you will taste a shot, com elas ou sem elas (literally with or without them, the cherries, that is).

And for “soaking up” this strong liqueur, we enjoy some true and traditional Portuguese delicacies, including suckling pig, in a old “tasca”, now renovated.

Hours: Monday to Saturday, around three hours.

Price: 45 €

Eat Drink Walk Lisbon: Belem Tour – Lisbon, Portugal

One of this company’s tours was reviewed by FoodTourFinder
See our review here!

Belém is one of the highlights of any visit to Lisbon. The magnificent Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower, jewels of the Portuguese Manueline style from the early 16th century – both Unesco World Heritage sites – are located there. But Belém, besides the heritage, the museums and the gardens and parks, is also famous for being custard tart territory.

Home of the famous and unmissable café, Pastéis de Belém, the original place that started baking custard tarts (using a recipe from the nearby monastery) or as we say in Portuguese pastéis de nata, one of our most popular cakes and possibly our most famous food creation in the world.

It’s also a neighbourhood full of life and other delicious cakes, including other award-winning custard tarts that we will taste with a glass of moscatel.

In this tour we introduce you not only to the best pastéis de nata in Lisbon but also to some delicious savoury “petiscos”, including  a dish of  fish or meat, with a tasting of wine.

We’ll also take you to the iconic Tower of Belém gardens.

Duration: Three and a half hours

Price: 50 euros

Columbus has a lot to offer the carnivore, and not just in the form of its juicy burgers and famous sausages. On our Meat Lover’s Tour, we’ll encounter one of the most creative chefs in the city using farm fresh cuts and innovative preparations, a pair of ethnic cuisines displaying novel uses for a wide range of proteins, and a smokehouse with a long history of preparing European-style smoked and cured meats. This event is (self evidently?) far from vegetarian friendly and is a delicious overview of some of the most delicious carnivorous delights to be found in the city!

Enchanted Expeditions: The Gastronomic Secrets of Ecuador

The biological mega-diversity of Ecuador transcends its many ethnic groups and their traditional cooking styles.

In Ecuador we can find one of the largest variety of soups in the world. For their preparation, a great amount of products is normally used among which we count the quinoa, maize, barley, green plantain, different varieties of beans, manioc or potatoes considered as king of tubers. These items when cooked together with different kinds of meat or fish or simply using dairy products and a great variety of legumes, fruits or vegetables can be deliciously combined to produce nutritious, tasty soups.

The chroniclers from the time of the Spanish Conquest tell us about a dish prepared by the Indians of the “Puna Island” in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of the Province of El Oro where fish was “cooked” or marinated in a lemon juice. This special variety of lemon grows in the coastal region and the dish is known at present times as Ceviche. This typical dish has spread to other coastal provinces and can be prepared in many different ways using different types of seafood as its main ingredient.

The various geographical zones and climates allow the production of native fruits and vegetables in addition to the exotic plants introduced by the Conquistadores. Certain fruits are restricted to small areas such as Naranjilla, a juicy tart orange coloured fruit in the family of tomato that only grows in the surroundings of the Cloud Forests on the slopes of the Andes. The great diversity and contrasts of the Ecuadorian cuisine is the result of merging the local products of the traditional cooking styles under the influence of the outside world.

This tour takes you through various regions of Ecuador where you will sample the typical foods and dishes of those areas. The journey begins with historic city and market tours of Quito. In Imbabura province guests sample bizcochos con queso de hoja (biscuits and cheese rolls) in Cayambe, are introduced to the role of the guinea pig in dining history and visit a cheese factory.
Agricultural enterprises are explored between the Ecuadorian highlands and the coastal area to San Lorenzo. A visit to Pedernales embraces a traditional cebiche manabita before a stop at the fishing village of Puerto Lopez where breakfast will include bolones de verde (plantain dumplings). On another day after a typical Guayaquilanian lunch the tour moves into the southern highlands to Cuenca, Ecuador's most beautiful historical city, for tours of the famous Gualaceo food market.

There is the option of going on to Galapagos on board one of our vessels… there you have a chance to savor all the dishes from all the regions. The grand summary of it all (this will add 8 more days to the journey).

Durarion: 9 days / 8 nights, with option of Galapagos extension
Highlights: regional food and dishes, Ecuadorian countryside

Price: From $1,718 per person double occupancy for two people to $902 for tours with more guests
