It’s time to prove you have a hand in cooking.
Chef for a day – a culinary team building.
In this program we take you to visit Lisbon, focusing on its markets and traditional stores. Along a walking tour that will pass by Bairro Alto, Baixa and Alfama, participants will get to know the city and its gastronomic traditions better, buy ingredients in these places (with money we provide) and, in the end, they will have a a culinary team building: they should create their own codfish cakes and beat the competition.
Each team will have a set of coloured ribbons that will identify them through a specific colour. In addition to the lanyards they will also receive a tablet that will guide the activity. Through an application created by our company, exclusively dedicated to tourism use and allowing you to know where you are, where you are going and still present content created by us (questions, tourist information, photographic evidence), participants will be on their own informed about the program and its objectives. Throughout the program, in addition to the contents on the tablet, participants will also be challenged to buy the ingredients for codfish cakes at the best price, get to the restaurant where the final test will take place and then create the best codfish cakes made in Lisbon. In the end, who will determine their quality will be an unsuspecting Lisbon passer-by. We will call someone with a knowing air and this judge will taste all the pastels, declaring the winner there! Only a true Lisboan can know which is the best codfish cake.
You only truly know a culture by getting intimate with what they eat and drink. In this program, in addition to the walking tour, the fact of knowing traditional shops and markets shows you a little more than a normal tour in the city you are visiting. Knowing the gastronomic traditions, one knows the economy, the agricultural production, the tastes moulded by generations and generations, the habits and customs. The part of the culinary team building that we put into the program, as well as being extremely entertaining, is provided by a person with knowledge, allows you to “put your hand in the dough”, mix the ingredients, taste and season to taste and, in the final, to have the pride of, as a group, having created your own recipe for codfish cakes. These small pieces of gluttony are eaten by the Portuguese at any time of the day and only one of ours can tell you which is the best cod cake among all the contest teams. Become a true Portuguese chef.
This activity is set to last between 2 hours and 3 ½ hours. It will begin with a briefing to the whole group where the details of the activity and all the procedures allowed are explained. Here we will divide the group into teams and deliver the tablets as well. Through our application we can create custom routes, shorten or extend the activity, but ideally you will have at least 2 hours of experience.
The specificities of this program allow it to be carried out in any city of Portugal. The program is of course outdoor and the course will be created depending on the time available for the activity. The final location will be chosen according to the city in which you want to perform this activity.
