All about this experience
Discover the secrets behind the recipe and marvel at a delicious meal.
Francesinha is the most famous sandwich and one of the typical dishes of the city of Porto, which you can not miss. It consists of derivatives of pork (ham, sausages, among others), steak (mostly veal), cheese, bread and egg. But the key to highlight an excellent Francesinha, undoubtedly is the sauce, made with meat and alcoholic beverages and whose recipe is hardly known by the restaurants that make them.
We are sure you will love your taste buds, so you have the opportunity to learn how to cook a little French step by step as well as how to make the sauce. For the sauce, we use a traditional recipe that has been in the family for tens of years. Joana will tell you the curious story behind its origin and why this denomination and in the end we will eat the warm French, accompanied by a drink to your taste.
This experience takes place in an exclusive room for participants at Joana's restaurant.
