Top Chefs Get Together For Lisbon’s Top Gastronomic Event

Peixe em LisboaLisbon’s top gastronomic event naturally has to be about fish. Portugal’s strong historical and cultural relationship with the oceans together with the vast Atlantic coastline mean that there is always fresh seafood on the plate, and Lisbon has been celebrating the joys of cooking fish over the past three years. The third annual edition of “Peixe em Lisboa – Fish and Flavours” takes place this month, starting on the 10th and ending on the 18th, in the Portugal Pavilion in Parque das Nações.
The event consists of several restaurants and famous chefs putting together cooking shows and offering gourmet products and the opportunity to taste some excellent food. In the gourmet section you can also buy cheeses, coffees, chocolates, jams, olive oils, or vinegars, making this a complete gastronomic experience.
This year the event will also have a slight Brazilian flavor, with some of the former colony’s hottest chefs crossing the Atlantic to demonstrate their talent. One of them is Alex Atala of São Paulo’s “D.O.M.” which is considered to be one of the world’s best restaurants.
Another international presence is that of Joan Roca, a Spanish chef who’s been awarded three Michelin stars.
Tickets for the event cost 15 euros which also get you a free drink and a free 5-euro tasting at the restaurant of your choice. All other tastings are paid separately.
