Make the custard from scratch and bake your creations inside a professional oven. Enjoy a collaborative team activity, rather than individual cooking stations.

João’s instruction was friendly, knowledgeable, and personal. He took the time to answer any question and the class didn’t feel rushed at all. It was a true treat to experience the joy of baking traditional 5th generation Portuguese food and to make a new friend in the process!
