Born and raised in Lisbon, I’m a huge food lover who did voices for cartoons, traveled to 5 continents, and spent time in the US, where I was a 500lb pro wrestler. Today, I'm a skinny Drag Chef, an LGBTIQ+ rights activist, and the founder and CEO of The Tasty Studio, a viral recipes video production company. I'm in LOVE with food and have my own cooking show on YouTube. I’ve also hosted hundreds of home-cooked dinners for people from around the world—I never get tired of sharing ideas around what to eat! I recently married Nikolay, an amazing Russian man who taught me everything about drag queen culture. Our unique experience combines both our passions and we love meeting people visiting Lisbon, spending time with brilliant travelers, and cooking and eating authentic Portuguese food together. We also have a team of queens who help us out!

Where you'll be

I will do this experience in my private strange home in central Lisbon. I live in the most hipster, trendy and unique place in Lisbon, the LX FACTORY (actually, my husband and I are the only people living inside this old Portuguese Factory). Our place is a Drag House with crazy decorations, billiards table, body chandeliers, and a lot of Portuguese centenary pieces. But most importantly, we want you to feel like you're at your own home.

This is a once in a lifetime experience that I haven't seen anywhere else. My friend and I found this experience as we were exploring the idea of visiting Lisbon, and it really sealed the deal for us. It was the one activity we were looking forward to most, and it did not disappoint. From the minute you walk into DragTaste, you are having a great time. The atmosphere was energetic and inviting, the queens were hilarious and genuine. The transformations were incredible, delightful, and beautiful to watch (and be a part of!). I felt like I got to be a part of myself I've never had access to, and the stories of these lovely individuals were beautiful. It was a great mix of fun and laughter with some unexpected heartfelt moments that showcase how important and vulnerable the drag community can really be. If you're thinking about it - do it.

The party was awesome! I did really enjoy every part of it: the make up was mind-blowing (I kind of think I need to use sparkles more often in my life), the food was delicious, the wine and the show - everything was great! I'd also like to point out that hosts were very flexible and tried to find something suitable for everyone. Don't be afraid nobody is going to push you to do anything that you don't want:)

Hmm, where to begin? Much more than a “DragTaste” dinner for sure. The ladies gave their hearts to us as if we had known each other forever. A few stages to the evening. First, one group will prep the appetizers and do sous work while others get made-up. Next, some swap places and others continue prepping main course. Then those in drag ready take the stage for their formal introduction by their Drag mother (optional). Next is dinner as a group. It was exceptional. Traditional Portuguese done by a bunch of novices. The kitchen design is stunning (I WANT THIS) and everyone had plenty of room to perform duties. I was shocked at how so many different people, cultures and orientations came together to prepare and share a beautiful meal. I don’t have enough words for beautiful Africa. The way she could so elegantly balanced all of our cooking instructions (tough crowd after we all had plenty of wine) while somehow providing humor, encouragement and a passion for the food’s story. I thought I was a decent cook, but learned so many new tricks from her. Babaya! Wow! Poised and gorgeous and the show lady extraordinaire. Her show will cost thousands one day and we are all rooting for her on Portugal’s Got Talent. I loved getting made up by her and sharing stories. And finally LaSarga. Such a warm and completely talented lady that made even the leery gentlemen comfortable with personalized, AMAZINGLY CREATIVE make-up. Her performance also blew us away! I guess it’s not about the meal or drag show as much as it is identifying parallels with vastly different people. Wait until the final hour-that’s when everyone is exactly who they are or wish to be. It’s really lovely and super, duper fun. Made my impromptu birthday visit from the US one to be cherished for a lifetime.

DragTaste was a BLAST! This is a must when you are visiting Lisbon. Afrika, Babaya, and Lasarca made us feel so welcome from the second we arrived, kept our glasses full the entire night, and just an incredibly unique experience all-around - 10 strangers and 3 Kweens that were more like family by the time our transformations were done and we were sharing our home-cooked meal together at the table. Thank you so much for a great 1st night’s welcome to Portugal! We will definitely be back.

The only word to describe this experience is amazing! The queens were so welcoming and made each of us feel special and valued. Being able to share life stories with queens from different backgrounds thank my own only added to the magic! Plus, the food was incredible, the makeup was breathtaking, and the playlist was on point! We loved it so much we went to the Sunday brunch!
