When I travel I love to immerse myself in the local culture, I find the best way to do that is to cook and eat with the locals and take the local transit. Cascais is a sea side town 30 minutes by train from Lisboa and abundant with fresh fish and shellfish. My favourite dish was clams in cataplana. I would snack on this dish at the end of the day, sitting at a beachside cafe, vinho verde nearby, watching the world go by or reading my book du jour.
In this cooking class you will learn to make mussels in cataplana (I prefer the mussels over the clams for this dish). The cataplana is a clam shaped dish with a hinged lid. This is a very traditional dish used in Portugal, especially in the Algarve. Traditionally, huntsmen would cook their meal in the cataplana over open flames. Nowadays you will see people gathering at the seaside cafes to connect over clams cataplana.
