Vítor & Tolga
I grew up in Germany with Turkish parents who instilled in me my passion for travelling, food and culture. I lived in New York for many years where I graduted from the Natural Gourmet Institute in 2004, ever since then I have been teaching cooking classes and developing recipes for cookbooks and restaurants in different countries. With my partner Vítor, a Lisbon native, we host culinary walking tours, pop-up dinners, and diverse cooking classes. I like to cook world cuisine, where I fuse my numerous influences, creating new dishes, yet staying true to the culinary traditons, the soul and the local ingredients to whichever cuisine I am cooking. My teaching style is based on telling stories about the culture, ingredients and preparation methods, so no one will leave without having gained a new practical kitchen skill and new perspectives.
Food ingredients I'll provide all the food for three dishes and surprise dessert.
Drinks Aperativ, 3 different wines, Portwine and water

Where you'll be
We live in a tiny house tucked away within a private Palace build in the 16th century in the middle of Alfama, easily accessible by all modes of transport, my home kitchen is semi-professional where I create and test all the recipes I'm developing for my upcoming cookbook and other culinary projects.
