Cooking Academy

In a region where gastronomic history is so dense and made of countless layers, we have been inspired by the flavors, the ways of cooking and the products of the region.


In our kitchen we’re always open to teach everything we know, but also to learn from those who come to us. Here we all give a little of who we are, so that more than a simple hotel stay this can be a true gastronomic experience. To do this we count on the years of experience and dedication of our team to the Alentejo cuisine, from mastering the art of making bread to the Cocaria cooking tradition.


Every month our Chef Luís Batalha opens our kitchen, in a journey through the gastronomic origins, helping you to handle the most elemental cooking bases. From a monthly workshop calendar, in which you’ll stimulate your senses with our aromatic herbs, learn to cook the region’s famous migas de pão or how to knead the pizza dough with your children, to cooking lesson or themed weekends, we assure you’ll get what you need to wow your friends and family during a meal at home.


Come visit us and get your hands dirty.


On Monday, you can learn the secret ingredient to our migas de pão. On Thursday, you might want to travel to the wonderful world of aromatic herbs, followed by a cocktail with our Chef on Friday, to kickstart the weekend.


Creativity will blossom sooner when shared. Why don’t you invite a friend or a family member and enroll in one of our cooking classes? Limited to 4 people per class, we will discuss different cuisine topics, from which knives should you use and how to cut – without risking cutting your fingers, of course! – the secrets behind the Portuguese pastries or the Portuguese cuisine to a trip to the wonders of International cuisine.


Next time you’re asked to cook some of the Portuguese most famous dishes, you will be able to wow everyone and get them asking you for more.

Conditions: book in advance through or online (soon). For groups of more than 4 people, please contact the hotel. Cooking lessons can be changed without notice.
