A deliciously global focus makes this supper club a must eat. Our chefs have cooked their way through Portugal's best kitchens, and in this evening experience they show you what they've learned. Enjoy modern twists on local ingredients, as well as global flavors incorporated into traditional Portuguese cooking.
Our supper club is exactly what it sounds like—a casual evening around the table, in good company with great food. Try a new dining experience at Pine Cliffs Resort. Sip on a welcome drink, meet your fellow diners, and settle into your table in the kitchen to see what's simmering on our stoves. Our fantastic and luxurious cooking school is the perfect place for people to come together to try new dishes and enjoy a fabulous, convivial atmosphere.
Our wine expert will arrange a selection of wines to pair with the dishes prepared by one of our chefs. Meanwhile, our chef will talk you through the dishes they are preparing, so you can pick up a few tricks for your home kitchen. The supper club is great opportunity to exchange conversation with others that share your love for all things culinary.

Born in the Algarve in a small fishing village, Lucia was accustomed to cooking with and eating a variety of fresh produce from a young age. Her grandparents come from the countryside and always maintained fresh vegetable and fruit gardens. Getting together around a table of food is very important to Lucia. Her passion for cooking started at a young age.
She moved to England as a teenager, where she studied and worked in the business world until she made the leap into the professional kitchen. She travels a lot and has lived in Spain and New York, as well, working in the hospitality and the wine industry. However, her heart was always in the kitchen. In her free time, she likes to go back to her roots—literally. You can find her at the ocean or in her in the garden, where she grows and picks her vegetables.
