What you'll do

~ I can make private classes and different dates, send a message! ~

It's not easy to find true Portuguese Traditional sweets and pastries, so this is your chance to know all about them!

This class is perfect for people travelling in small or big groups and also for families with kids.

We will focus on lesser-known traditional sweets that are loved by locals but travelers don't usually have a chance to know about or taste.

Let me introduce you to the amazing way of baking sweets and desserts in Portugal that I learned from my grandmothers.

During our experience, I’ll tell you all the story behind the sweets, who created and cherish them until nowadays and all together let's bake 3 different and scrumptious portuguese delicacies: my favorite Conventual Sweets!

There are hundreds of different traditional sweets, so I will change the recipes quite often. This season (fall/winter 2019) we are making:

- Brisas do Liz
- Queijadas
- Pastéis de Feijão

Attention: If you are looking for Pastel de Nata, I host a class on those, please check my profile.

Oh, hi there!

I'm Joana, born and raised in Porto, a lover of all things cooking and baking related, travel enthusiast and a Tourism Management graduate.

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.

Let me share all of these things with you! Can't wait to meet you!

This was such a wonderful experience! Not only did we learn some new recipes, we heard stories of the culture, history, and culinary secrets!! Joana is an exceptional hostess!! Even my boyfriend enjoyed doing this- he was so hands on which was fun to watch. I can't wait to make some of these desserts for my friends and family. Thank you Joana for sharing your family recipes. You're amazing and so kind.

Joana maîtrise l’anglais à la perfection et sait nous raconter l histoire de sa passion et de ce que nous allons cuisiner. Tout le groupe participe activement et nous dégustons ensuite ce que nous avons préparé. Joana a aussi partagé ses autres expériences et su nous orienter pour la suite de notre voyage: conseils avisés que nous avons suivi avec plaisir !

We went on this baking course during our one week holiday to Porto, and we absolutely loved everything. From the illustrated stories about the origin of the pastries to the experience of baking them- everything was just so nice. Joana was incredibly sweet and welcoming, and met us with open arms. 10/10 would recommend this activity as well as the hostess⭐️

My second time doing an experience hosted by Joana. We love how her experiences update throughout the year which means there’s always a new recipe to learn. Joana is a great story teller and explains all steps in a clear manner, we were impressed! Thanks for showing us what we could easily miss as visitors in Porto.
