This ‘market workshop’ starts with a visit to the Mercado da Ribeira, where participants will be able to hear some of local stories, as they buy some of the items that they will be using in the Time Out Academy. They then continue to the Academy itself, where they will start cooking under the watchful eye of the chef. Dishes: Winkles or cockles à Bulhão Pato (with garlic and coriander) and carne de porco à alentejana (pork with cockles). The menu may vary depending on the day and what is on offer in the market. 10 October, 11am, length 3hrs. Double ticket: €90 (includes workshop, lunch & drinks).
