We recently attended the Supper Club with Chef Manuel and loved every minute of it. The evening starts with sparkling wine and a tapas dish, a lovely meal follows with great inspiration from the chef as he prepares each dish. The ambience is relaxed and creative. The food was delicious and the wine pairings complemented each dish beautifully. We loved that it was Portugese ingredients cooked in a way that we hadn't had before - very creative plating made it look as beautiful as it tasted.
A very good value at 65 Euros including wine with each of the five courses.
We are heading back tomorrow for another class at Mimo Algarve

Lucia and team were fantastic! I had a great time learning some traditional Portuguese recipes (with a couple of ‘illegal’ twists!). It’s a lovely atmosphere, in a beautiful setting. Lucia and her team made the whole experience really fun, and I learned loads of helpful tips for home. Thank you!

I am not a cook (unless you call throwing something in the microwave cooking), but this class made me feel like I could be possibly be! Learning everything first hand from Chef Lucia not only made me that much more confident in the kitchen, but showed me that I can actually enjoy it. I especially loved learning how to filet a fish!

Thank you Chef Lucia for the best introduction - I only wish I could've signed up for more classes!

We attended the supper club at Pine Cliffs as a party of seven people. The ambience was fantastic and we were made to feel at home in a very relaxed environment right from the start. Lucia the Chef was fabulous in every way. She was very knowledgeable about the food and wine as well as being a fantastic chef! The food was delicious and Lucia even changed the menu from previously discussed to cater for the tastes in our party as she really wanted to ensure we had the best experience possible. Thank you Lucia for a really great evening. You're a star!!

I organised a birthday celebration with 7 friends for two days at Pine Cliffs to include the Portugal with a Twist Supper Club and the Modern Portuguese Bistronomy class the next day. It was the most perfect way to celebrate a landmark birthday!

Lucia and her team were wonderful! We were greeted with warmth and a glass of delicious Marquês de Marialva! What a way to begin one of the most interesting and delicious evenings I have ever spent! Lucia was absolutely wonderful! She was kind,patient and hugely informative answering our barrage of questions with grace and humour! In short, she is the perfect teacher. No question was too trivial not to be answered and she explained clearly and precisely how each dish had been prepared and why. It was a truly enlightening experience.
We returned the next day for our hand-on Modern Portuguese Bistronomy class to find yet again a warm welcome from Lucia. While we might all have been slightly worse for wear she was bright and sparkly and ready to lead us on another fascinating culinary journey. We chopped and filleted, peeled and diced our way through another delicious four-course meal. It was fascinating to work in a professional kitchen and nearly all of us are now ready to turn our spare bedrooms into kitchen supply storage!! Suddenly the Christmas lists became extra long.It was really great being exposed to all sorts of new utensils we can no longer live without.
The bright and airy kitchen is a glorious venue made for conviviality and we all thoroughly enjoyed learning from such a gracious and accomplished teacher. I, for one, am already planning my return trip to MIMO!

I attended a four day cookery school at MIMO ALGARVE which was casual, enlightening and great fun. By the second time I got to finish my favourite trick, blowtorching mackerel , having delicately smoked the fish over fresh herbs, the herbs under the rack caught from the blow torch ... wonderful ,whoosh !
A rotation of wonderful chefs from Lucia, ( Head Chef ) Mateus, Miguel, Manuel , and Caterina ( who assisted and cleaned up behind chefs and pupils) , taught us all so much. From the importance of 'ice baths', 'brunoise' ( chopping everything so tiny, fit for a dwarfs dinner) , 'sous vide' technique ( which I'll have to emulate in my steam oven) . Such an enjoyable four days, I did the evening Chefs Table on the final day.
Eating all our accomplishments paired with delicious wines and port was joyful.
The value for the 4 or 7 day courses was excellent. Book soon, Mimo-Algarve is the newest of the Spanish based Mimo Schools ,and when established, the prices may ( fairly) increase a little. Highly recommended. STEPHEN RYAN x

It's been a great pleasure to attend in 7 days course at Mimo Algarve Cooking School with great chefs!
Thank you guys, we turned my vision of cooking process. I'm so much thankful to Lucia Ribeiro - Head Chef, Manuel, Miguel, Catarina - you all guys are great and sunshine persons, that made my 7 days even more bright than Portugal sun. Your recipes are twisted, crazy, full of flavor, colors and always beautiful like you're all! I can't repeat the words "Going off the beaten track leads straight to happiness"! Don't stop doing of what you're doing, my heart is always yours!
