CHARM ON A PLATE
The setting of the place leaves no room for doubt. We`re right in the heart of the protected landscape of the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros Nature Park and in the air can be felt the profound candour of the rural environment of Aldeia de Alvados. It is in this rustic scenario that we find the Cooking and Nature Emotional Hotel, a boutique hotel voted by Expresso newspaper the 2013 Newcomer of the Year, and appearing on Condé Nast Traveler`s Hot List of the Best New Hotels in the World. Such praise is justly deserved. Indeed Cooking and Nature`s originality goes beyond its interior design, created by Iznogud, carefully designed to ensure an overall experience of the space and of the landscape. Here guests are invited to cook the dishes appearing on the hotel`s menu with the chef, in an enriching partaking of knowhow and culinary memories. The kitchen is thus entirely conducive to experimenting with local produce, or herbs out of the hotel garden. When booking their stay, guests have the chance to choose traditional accommodation or an option enabling them to choose which of the dishes from chef Nuno Barros they are going to want to make.
