Come and enjoy the best of Portugal with our guide Fatima Nascimento who lives in central Portugal and who spent many years in Australia sharing her love and passion for the food and wine of her homeland. Fatima opened the first Portuguese restaurant in Australia in Sydney’s Surry Hills and went on to create a successful high end catering business. She and her husband Wayne moved back to the family estate to live a couple of years ago.
Our safari visits Lisbon, central Portugal, the Douro Valley and Alentejo with this inspiring woman, including sharing a day in a local produce market and then cooking on her family estate.
Her connections open many doors and you’ll explore beyond the tourist trail in some beautiful parts of the country, staying at mainly 5 star level.
This safari has no internal flights! We drive into Seville to meet our Spanish guide, acclaimed chef Frank Camorra who has just celebrated 10 years of his brilliant Movida restaurants.
Frank takes us through his home province of Andalusia, tasting the best food of the region, enjoying tapas bars and flamenco, top restaurants and wineries in Cordoba, Jerez, Cadiz and surrounds. We will have two cooking classes with Frank during our time together, both on private country estates and many opportunities to enjoy the best the region has to offer. We stay in mainly 5 star level.
