Unreal day with João from Eat Drink Discover Algarve! Started at the Lagos Farmers Market to pick up fresh produce and then the seafood market to grab ingredients for the dish we were going to make...literally three kinds of shark. The fisherman work all night long and auction off their catch every single morning. Doesn't get more fresh than that!
After picking up our fresh produce and seafood, João drove us to his little cottage in a small town outside of Lagos. We had wine and cooked a few classic Portuguese dishes: clams with garlic/wine/cilantro and a fish stew (shark stew?) with peppers, tomato, onions, garlic and potatoes. For dessert, whipped cream layered between crumbed cookie layers. Such an incredible day!
João drove us back home after we were finished. Later, he met up with us in the centre of Lagos while he was leading a massive food tour group, got us into a super busy local restaurant and ordered us an amazing Portuguese meal. Above and beyond, can't thank you enough!
Highly recommend! Ridiculously affordable for everything you get!
