*Covid-19 : I have reduced the number of maximum participants to 8. The class is given in an open space kitchen facing the garden large windows, which assures clean air flow. My house is big enough for participants to be at a safe distance from each other. It is also well cleaned everyday and hands washing is mandatory.

We will meet in my home, in the city center (so you can easily fit me in your tight sightseeing schedule!) where we have lots of natural light and everything we need for messy and fun baking time!

Feel welcome when entering my home, I love to host and to have guests! I have been doing this all my life with friends and family.

To start our experience, we will talk a little bit about me and my family since this is a recipe that belongs to my grandmothers and we have been doing it for years, so you can understand the uniqueness and how lucky I was when growing up eating these amazing Pastéis.

This is a hands-on class, we will bake everything from scratch as a group with my help! That is the most important part, we will create the most amazing Pastel de Nata because we will put lots of love, time and care into them. Everybody will help, we will take turns and I will give you a lot of fun facts regarding the story about them and who created

Hello!

I'm Joana, born and raised in Porto, a lover of all things cooking and baking related, travel enthusiast and a Tourism Management graduate. I love my city, our traditions and I know a lot about it since I never lived anywhere else.

Office working style it's not my thing - hosting, teaching, learning, meeting new people everyday, telling stories and hearing fabulous adventures from fellow travelers are my passions.

I come from a traditional (and by traditional, of course I mean a very loud) Portuguese family with a deep love for homemade dishes.
My grandmothers were AMAZING in the kitchen and being able to grow up with these unique family owned recipes has been so special - I welcome you to enter this world of love, good food and endless stories.

Can't wait to meet you!

I had a wonderful time making Pasteis de Nata with Joana. I booked this tour as a private experience and I could not have been happier. From a warm welcome, to doing the actual baking, Joana made me feel very welcome and gave me the wonderful stories about the origins of the Pasteis. The space for baking is lovely and light, and I appreciated the thoughtful touches like fresh coffee and a glass of port with the tasting at the end. As a total beginner, Joana gave me a lot of confidence and direction and the end product was better than I could have imagined. I would definitely recommend and I wouldn’t hesitate to do another experience with her. Additional recommendations were appreciated and I went for a fabulous lunch afterwards!

This experience if definitely worth trying! Joana is a great host, especially during these times she was very organised and took care of everyone and everything. The whole class was perfectly planned with a whole backstory, and we all got to participate in the cooking. Overall, if you want to learn something you can take home with you, this is the place to be.

The whole experience with Joana was more than perfect! She is a wonderful host. She welcomed me to her beautiful home where I could get a glimpse of the Portuguese lifestyle, cuisine, and of course bake the delicious Pasteis de Nata. I am thinking about going back to Porto to take this experience again. P.S: if you don't know where to eat in Porto, just ask her. She is an expert :)

My husband and I are true pastel de nata’s lovers! Just before flying to Portugal we were wondering how Pastel de Nata was created... So Joana told us all about it and answered all our questions. She is super friendly , made us feel very welcomed and she was super patient to show us all the steps to make the perfect pastel de nata. The house setting is also lovely which contributes to the Master Chef feeling while learning all about this Portuguese delicacy. We had a great time and I definitely recommend this experience if you come to Porto.
