Chef André Magalhães, Taberna da Rua das Flores (8 October 2018)


Chef André Magalhães has created Taberna da Rua das Flores a tiny little tavern serving some of the most inspiring and creative cooking in Lisbon. I had the opportunity to work there for two weeks with his great staff and learned more than that I could ever imagine. Together with Chef Bruno I assisted in preparation of more than 50 dishes, asked 1000 questions, learned new flavors and cooking methods as well as I made lots of notes. My journey with Portuguese food had already started in Brazil, São Paulo. I was always dreaming about coming to Portugal and to learn more. Thank you Chef André for giving me that opportunity! Thank you Chef Bruno for your support and all fantastic staff of Taberna da Rua das Flores for such a warm welcome! I admire all of you for your hard and dedicated work and I understand why there is always a queue outside the door to the Taberna.
