Taberna do Mercado founder Nuno Mendes (who also oversees the Chiltern Firehouse kitchen) is launching a series of dinners in late March, which will explore the relationship between Portuguese cuisine and the eating cultures of Goa, Macau, Mozambique and Japan. 

The £60-a-head dinners will also celebrate the drinking culture of each country, combining tipples with Portuguese wines to create drinks-pairing flights (an additional £30 per person). On 21 March, the first dinner will focus on Portugal’s influence on Goa’s national cuisine. There will be two sittings (6.30pm and 7.30pm) and on the menu, you can expect stuffed poppadoms, roasted coconut and a Portuguese-style pork vindaloo.

Future dates:

23 May Macau
12 September Mozambique
21 November Japan

The first dinner in the series takes place on 21 March from 6.30pm, at Taberna do Mercado. Tickets are priced at £60 per person, including a welcome drink, while paired drinks costs an additional £30. To book a ticket, follow this link.
