About this event

NOTE: this experience used to run in the centre of Lisbon but, because of Covid19 related changes, we are now happily hosting in the town of Malveira, in Mafra, a well-known area famous for its food related traditions. We're only 30 minutes from Lisbon!

*** If you can't travel to Portugal right now, we take Portugal to you! Join our online Pastel de Nata class here, via Airbnb Experiences Online! ***


This is the only cooking class in Portugal where you'll get to learn about pastry making at a real award-winning Portuguese bakery! We'll go inside the kitchen of João's "pastelaria" near the picturesque city of Mafra, that won Silver Medal as Best Pastel de Nata in Portugal in 2018. This is where you will learn how to bake the irresistible Portuguese Custard Tarts (aka Pastel de Nata) everybody is raving about these days.

This class is open to all levels, even if you don't have previous baking experience. As long as you like sweet treats, we like you! We will show you how to make puff pastry like the pros do, make the custard from scratch and bake it all inside a professional oven. João will entertain us with stories about his life as a baker - feel free to ask him anything about Portuguese sweets! In the end, we'll eat the warm tarts along with some coffee, while hanging out with the other participants.

What's included?

- Pastry Class: all professional equipment and ingredients needed are provided

- Pastel de Nata tasting (3 tarts for you to eat as soon as they come out of the oven or to take home!)

- Beverages: bottled water and coffee
