Cooking should be a pleasure but not all of us are professionals in the kitchen, so for those who are looking to learn more there are new workshops taking place in the Alentejo.

The Santiago Hotel Cooking & Nature, located in Santiago do Cacém first opened in July 2017 under new management by DHM, Discovery Hotel Management, and has since become a hotel dedicated to culinary and gastronomic experiences.

Central to the hotel is the large open kitchen, where guests can experience not only the chefs preparing meals in the Á Terra restaurant, they can also take part in master classes and workshops.

Culinary workshops for guests and visitors began in 2018 with the founding of the Santiago Cooking Academy. Master classes take place over two days and allow participants the chance to deepen their knowledge on a certain gastronomic theme.

If you would rather get a taste for the subject then the workshops are an ideal option, with a fresh agenda each month bringing together various experiences.

The most recent master classes were dedicated to traditional Portuguese cuisine, including many homemade classics and including a visit to a vineyard, while upcoming classes reflect the seasons and seasonal produce.

Cookery workshops take place every day for between one and three hours and feature a whole host of different themes including Alentejo bread making, how to make desserts and summer favourites.
