What you'll do

We will meet in the center of Porto and drive to Maia where we live. An amazing city, a mix of countryside and city, here you can feel a bit of peace. Once we arrive at home we will do a toast with Port wine and be ready to start our baking . After some talk its time to 'get your hands on work'. I will first explain you all the steps before we start cooking. We divide this workshop in 2 different stages, first you will see how to do the puff pastry, the base for our Pastel de nata and on the second stage the filling!! All of you will participate in the baking .We clarify that we don't have individual work areas, but that we all work together as a team. With our babies in the oven for 15 minuts we will prepare our drinks, coffe, tea or a genuine white Port wine to enjoy with our Pastel de Nata . All participants make at least 2 pastries by hand - spreading the dough with a specific Pastry technique, filled with the cream and oven :) I am sure that the result will be delicious. After the pastel de nata is done we will finally tasted and realize this is the best nata you ever eat. After this amazing moment its time to come back to porto and enjoy an amazing afternoon by yourself. We say goodbye each other but we are now friends for life

Hello!! I'm Inês from south of Portugal but living in Porto for 4 years. I'm Passionated to showing people the best we have in our country. I love to cook, specially sweets, cakes, candies all this wonders. As foodie, who have traveled the world looking for the best dishes and desserts i can assure you that Portugal is the perfect country to taste the best desserts in the world. I am not a professional baker but my baking experience for more than 10 years makes me a very sweet person with the best hands for sweets. Everytime we had a familiar event i was in charge to do all the food and of course desserts and people just love it. I start selling my cakes and sweets for the small shops around my city. Pastel de Nata, the most famous and delicious sweet in Portugal, has became a passion for me once i try to bake it for the first time.
