I will pick you up at a meeting point in downtown Lisbon. An hour drive through the countryside will take us to a hilltop in the Serra de Montejunto Protected Landscape, a hidden gem that even most people from Lisbon don't know. The views of the mountains and vineyards along the way are truly astonishing. When we arrive, we enter the restored windmill and meet Miguel, the traditional millwright and carpenter who has recreated this structure according to Portuguese tradition. We’ll learn how the mill functions, and weather permitting, grind heirloom wheat or corn. Miguel’s nephew Carlos is our expert baker who will teach us how to turn this exceptional flour into bread, following old family recipes. We’ll mix and knead the dough and after when the dough has risen, we’ll form loaves, slash them and bake them in a wood-fired brick oven. Lunch is served in a charming inn, with views out over a valley dotted with fields and vineyards. Here a local family shares their recipes for traditional Portuguese cuisine. The centerpiece of our meal, “cozido,” is one of the national dishes of Portugal. It is a unique deep-dish pie with a yeasted crust, filled with a variety of sausages, beef, pork, and vegetables, baked in the wood-burning oven. Finally, we bid farewell to our hosts Miguel and Carlos, and return to Lisbon, each with a loaf of homemade bread as a souvenir of this remarkable day.
Besides i'm from Lisbon, i'm in love by the Portuguese West Region and its gastronomy, wine, beautifull scenery and rural traditions From more than 12 years that i live in this region, i'm an environmental engineer, working in water treatment and renewable energies. In parallel of the engineering , in 2017 i opened a tourism company and definitly discovered my passion of sharing the traditions and knowledge about my country and this specific region. For years that i study the traditions, wines and gastronomy of the west region, i'm very passionate by food and wine and the "science" of pairing both. My patners are Miguel a traditional millwright carpenter and miller and his nephew Carlos, a young master baker very connected with the ancient traditions of the region.
