With over a thousand dinners under his belt, Zé's story is full of exciting tales and delicious flavors, all of which you’ll discover as you sit around the table while food is prepared.

Join in with the cooking and learn to prepare traditional Portuguese dishes with a modern twist. Master the classic Codfish à Brás, dive into the flavors of Red Beans Portuguese Salad, and savor the rich taste of Clams Bulhão Pato. For those who love veggies, the unique Vegetables à Brás style, crafted with seasonal produce, is a must-try.

Cap off your culinary adventure with a delectable dessert wine and chocolate pairing, playing a tasting game that highlights the production, origin, and historical significance of each wine. This dive into Portuguese cuisine and culture guarantees that every dish shares a unique story.
