Who is the mind & soul ofSimply b food explorers?
Chef Vitor de Oliveira
& Sandra Tavares
As a cuisine chef and a former journalist, we´ve spent years investigating, traveling, cooking, and tasting in different regions of Portugal, visiting compelling sights - those well known and those off the beaten track - comparing small boutique hotels, wine and delicacies producers, also traditional as well as Michelin star restaurants, tourism experiences and establishing along the way trustful relationships with local guides, cuisine chefs, delicacies producers, artists, local public representatives, and many other interesting people.
These experiences provided us with enough knowledge to become Food & Wine travel designers, anxious to share with you all this so that you can benefit from an extensive network of connections, privileges, and arrangements already in place.
Based in Porto City, in the north of Portugal, we know the most hidden corners of Douro Valley and the North of Portugal, not only through the palate but also through the stories told by local people, traditions lived with family members and culinary events organized by wine, gastronomy and tourism institutions.
As being so, we defy you to visit and explore in an exclusive way this magnificent region, learn with us to cook the most traditional recipes, know the origins and production méthods, visit vineyards and small delicatessen and wine producers while tasting flavors that you´ll never forget!
Trust us to guide you through the best "Quintas", boutique hotels, and exquisite and traditional restaurants, providing you with the best culinary experiences of your life!
Prepare yourself for an exhilarating journey through the flavors, sun, sea, mountains, and of course, unforgettable wines!
Let's make a toast to the finest things in life!
