“On November 17, Dinner with the Queen will be held at Pousada de Condeixa Coimbra, the second of several dinners organized in a joint and collaboration with the writer and researcher Guida Cândido and Chef João d’Eça Lima under the motto: eat like a queen, inspired by the published work that portrays the historical and gastronomic aspect related to the tastes and cultural identity at the table in the period from the 16th to the 20th century.
The dinner, dedicated to D. Maria Francisca de Sabóia will have the spirit and staging of a banquet where dishes will be served based on the registered recipe. White wines will be served and some more delicacies will be presented at the time.
The work of historical investigation will be accompanied by a gastronomic research work for collection, production and preparation with ingredients as close as possible to those used at the time, work being done with local producers, to achieve a sensorial and tasteful representation that portrays as close as possible what would be the flavors of a temporally framed social and cultural experience and of a historical and social context that is registered in this palatial kitchen in Portugal. We will also try to recreate in the room the atmosphere of welcome to the diners in the palatial scenario / period master.
The dinner, starting at 20 hours, is mandatory and limited in number of participants (35 to 40) and has the presence, introduction and framing by the writer Guida Cândido.
