Carla Ramos' Mama's Portuguese custard tarts were everyone's favorite. Crispy and beautifully browned, they immediately awaken your senses right after leaving the oven.
In this special hands-on workshop, Carla Ramos from Table to Share will teach you how to prepare delicious Portuguese custard tarts, based on her mama's recipe and sure to impress your family and friends!
PORTUGUESE CUSTARD TARTS
We’ll start the workshop with yellow corn bread served with butter while Carla makes a short presentation on Portuguese cuisine. Then working together in teams of two you'll learn the secrets on how to make the most creamy custard and flaky pastry. Guests will prepare extras to be taken home, if they last until then ;).
While our tarts are in the oven, Carla will demonstrate how to prepare Portuguese-style flaming chorizo, and we literally mean flaming! A communal meal follows where Carla will serve a cod dish that couldn’t miss in a traditional Portuguese meal. As the popular saying goes “There are 365 ways of cooking cod, one for each day of the year!” As a side we will have a green salad and of course the chorizo! For dessert? Custard tarts of course! 😉
Guests will enjoy a LIVE performance by Portuguese artist John Ferreira while they eat.
Born and raised in the traditional Portuguese village of Sintra, food has always been the centre of Carla's life. She is truly passionate about food and travelling. Early in life she developed a curiosity to explore cuisines from different cultures. After more than 10 years working in finance, and being inspired by Toronto, one of the most multicultural cities in the World, she decided to follow her true passion and pursue a career in the food service industry. She set up Table to Share, which came out of her belief that filling a table with food is the most honest way to connect with people, experiences and enjoy life.
