Three guys in an apron? What do you think this means?
CIEE Lisbon keeps surprising everyone and this time we took our Fall Semester students to a Cooking Class!
Learning how to cook typical Portuguese food
It was around 6pm when we all arrived to Mercado de Santa Clara, to have our cooking class with Rita and Teresa from Paladarium.
The students were very excited about this: we were going to learn how to cook some typical portuguese dishes and... (the best part!)... eat what we cooked for dinner!
So, it was time to get our hands dirty and let the hard work begin. Who said it would be easy?
The main dish we prepared is called "Bacalhau à Braz" and it's one of our most traditional recipes of codfish.
The cod needs to be flaked by hand and all the skin and bones need to be removed. It's a difficult process but our students did an amazing job!
For dessert, we prepared some "Filhós de Floreta" (fritters) which is a very typical Christmas dessert in Portugal.
Look at the result. Looks great right? And it tasted even better with sugar and cinnamon on top!
Thank you to Rita and Teresa for being so kind and patient with us. We all had a wonderful time and great food!
The challenge is on now: students should go home and prepare a typical portuguese meal. So, to all the families and friends back home, please keep us updated! ;)
