What to Expect (+)

We will pick you up at a meeting point in downtown Lisbon. An hour drive through the countryside will take us to a hilltop in the Serra de Montejunto Protected Landscape, a hidden gem that even most people from Lisbon don’t know. The views of the mountains and vineyards along the way are truly astonishing. When we arrive, we enter the restored windmill and meet Miguel, the traditional millwright and carpenter who has recreated this structure according to Portuguese tradition. We’ll learn how the mill functions, and weather permitting, grind heirloom wheat or corn. Miguel’s nephew Carlos is our expert baker who will teach us how to turn this exceptional flour into bread, following old family recipes. We’ll mix and knead the dough and after when the dough has risen, we’ll form loaves, slash them and bake them in a wood-fired brick oven. Lunch is served in a charming inn, with views out over a valley dotted with fields and vineyards. Here a local family shares their recipes for traditional Portuguese cuisine. The centerpiece of our meal, “cozido,” is one of the national dishes of Portugal. It is a unique deep-dish pie with a yeasted crust, filled with a variety of sausages, beef, pork, and vegetables, baked in the wood-burning oven. Finally, we bid farewell to our hosts Miguel and Carlos, and return to Lisbon, each with a loaf of homemade bread as a souvenir of this remarkable day.

The Portuguese cozido is one of the national dishes of Portugal. It is a unique deep-dish pie with a yeasted crust, filled with a variety of sausages, beef, pork, and vegetables, baked in the wood-burning oven (Min. 4 persons). In smaller groups lunch is grilled iberian pork with side dishes.
