Five days in the Algarve equals five cooking classes. This course allows you to try five of our classes, meaning you will be an expert at petiscos, traditional cuisine, local Algarvian cuisine, and even cooking like a Michelin chef. Cover all your bases on this cooking vacation. Start your course any day of the week, and choose from our popular cooking classes according to your schedule:

  • The Algarve Cooking Class
  • Traditional Portuguese Cooking Class
  • Modern Portuguese Bistronomy 
  • Happy Hour: Petiscos & Tapas 
  • Sunday Brunch With Mimo 
  • Michelin Star Secrets Cooking Class

Each hands-on cooking class lasts 3.5 hours & includes unique instruction, aperitif, bilingual culinary guide, lunch of the dishes made in class with wines, digestif, and recipes.
