Casa da Baía hosts the first edition of the new Setúbal ao Vivo program, organized by the City Council, within the scope of which, until October 25, workshops aiming to disseminate and promote the products and arts and knowledge of the region take place.

The program includes cooking workshops, which always include tasting the dishes and sweets made during the session, and craft workshops, where participants can take home the work that has been done.

On the 17th, chef Álvaro Santos teaches how to cook savoy cabbage with farinheira in a session taking place between 3 pm and 6 pm, with a value of eight euros per person.

Chef Álvaro Santos is also responsible for the kitchen at Casa da Baía’s restaurant, which has been in operation since August 1, with a concept that “combines inspiration from the gastronomy of Setubal with traditional dishes from the most beautiful bays in the world”, explains responsible.

There are also vegetarian options, such as guiozas and risotto, and various fresh pastas, such as tagliatelle with cherry tomatoes and basil, which lead to a journey through the flavors of the world accompanied by wines from the region.

Thursdays at the restaurant are always themed and during the month of September they are dedicated to each of the five continents, starting on the 3rd, in Asia. Then, on the 10th, Africa, the 17th, Europe, and finally, the 24th, the Americas.

On Sundays, the kitchen is conducted in four hands by chef Álvaro Santos and a guest chef, who, on the next 6th, will be Vítor Gonçalves, from the restaurant O Malandro, in Lisbon.

On Sundays for four hands the menu made by the two chefs has a fixed price per person of 35 euros, which includes two starters, two dishes and a dessert.

The Casa da Baía restaurant by Álvaro Santos is also associated with gastronomic events organized by the Setúbal City Council to promote products from the region, such as the Oyster Week, which takes place between the 4th and the 13th of September.

The objective, explains Álvaro Santos, “is to have at least one dish on the menu in honor of the product featured in the gastronomic week” which, between September 4 and 13, will be an oyster with radish and salicornia ice. Casa da Baía’s restaurant is open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 7 pm to 12 am.
