Meet Zé

"To cook is not a service, is a way to love the others" (Mia Couto, Mozambican writer) I love to eat, and I love to cook. Living between Lisboa and São Paulo, in Lisboa I share the house with by beautiful girlfriend (Brazil) and with my flatmate Mico (Madeira), sommelier in one of the finest restaurants in Town. For dinner, we also share the house with family, neighbors and friends. Grown up within a typical Portuguese family, eating typical Portuguese food, personally very interested in discovery and exploration end up travelling a little, and developing a great pleasure by food, both very typical and very "new"... :) I cook unobvious typical meals, mixing both ingredients, technics, colors, textures, nutrients and of course, flavours! :)

We came to Zé's home with a little apprehension because we were with our teenagers (14 & 17) and he had invited 4 friends/guests to join us. Rapidly, we understood that this was going to be a very enjoyable evening with Ze's empathic authentic style and his welcoming open-minded friends. We discovered new types of meat, cheeses, wines, vegetables, ... from Brazil/Portugal, all brought to life with Ze's meticulous yet convivial cooking style. A delightful evening, great tastes and a beautiful person which were one of the highlights of our Lisbon weekend. Thanks Ze

Will repeat next time 100%. We were my girl and I and felt like we were at home. Zé knows how to create a truly satisfying experience. The food and drink was excellent. The definition is good food and good vibes. I hope to be able to return as soon as possible and see what news Zé have added. Thank you Zé.

Du point de vue culinaire, le repas était excellent, de très bon produit et le talent indéniable de Ze pour les accommoder à la perfection. Mais le plus important est ce moment de convivialité partagé avec Ze, Priscilla et Jack. Une excellent soirée. Notre meilleur souvenir de Lisbonne.
