MORE INFORMATION

DESCRIPTION
In Lisbon, the presence of immigrants - mainly from Portuguese former colonies like Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, and Cape Verde - is a fundamental part of the city's life. Food is an important aspect of this cultural mix, and to feel it we will be tasting one of the most famous dishes in the Portuguese-speaking world: feijoada!

During the lunch, we’ll have a conversation with Chef Rei about his experience working with Afro-Brazilian cuisine and the history of the feijoada. In his restaurant in Lisbon - inspired by his familiar tradition and his contact with different recipes from the African diaspora around the world - his objective is to show that food is a powerful way to socially and culturally connect people.

Do not miss this!

The African-Brazilian lunch is one of the best memories from my time in Lisbon. The restaurant is located way off the beaten track in a diverse local neighborhood. They opened the restaurant early in the day just for us and the owner and chef gave us his story of the challenges he faced to open the restaurant. The food dish served was pork, beans, rice and greens with a wonderful flour made of yuca root. Ask about the process for making the flour - amazing. The dish was spectacular - each piece stood on it's own but mixed together, the flavors exploded into a complex, balanced experience. Do not miss this experience!

Culturally rich and delicious

As soon as this experience was posted on Marketplace I signed up. Like many African-inspired dishes, Feijoada, is soul food and is rich in flavor and love. I am from the South (Georgia, USA), therefore, the communal feeling that this dish created was like home. The chef's story about creating a safe, inclusive space for people from all identities and serving food that his mother and foremothers cooked during his formative years was a reminder of the power of food and family. The Feijoada was delicious. They were kind and careful enough to make mine vegetarian. (Because it typically comes stewed in pork.) I would recommend that you visit, dine, and support this place while in Portugal. Plus, the views from the restaurant are amazing!
