Madeira Cook Experience


The purpose of the Madeira Cook Experience is to promote Madeiran cuisine, a humble, uncomplicated cuisine, where everyone can help and give their “personal touch”!

Learn how to make Madeiran delicacies during this gastronomic experience such as Poncha, Bolo do Caco and much more!








The Madeira Cook Experience project explores Madeira's unforgettable tastes, from a particularly “local” perspective, providing a discovery of our regional ingredients, people and our iconic Mercado dos Lavradores.

All the ingredients used are national and fresh, giving priority to regional products, but always subject to their seasonality.

During the Cook Experience, participants are invited to participate and help to prepare a starter, a main course and a dessert, typical of Madeiran cuisine as well as making the well-known poncha!

Some of the Madeiran delicacies that can be prepared during this gastronomic experience:

Caco cake with garlic butter
Sword ceviche with passion fruit
Pomegranate vinaigrette sword
Sweet potato with cane honey
Roasted chestnuts
Cottage cheese and passion fruit jam
Regional Poncha
