A private experience that can take place in the Alentejo Region or in the North Lisbon Region and will tell you the story of an exclusive Portuguese product: The Carolino rice variety.
Internationally recognized by top chefs, Carolino Rice is the Foundation of some of our best rice dishes, with its characteristic creamy texture.
What we propose is to come with us to visit the producer, being able to see and to participate in various activities in the field related to the rice production. It’s sown between the months of April and May, the fields are fertilized in June, and the harvest takes place between August and October, always depending on the weather.
After having learnt about and participated in the rice production method, we will taste a traditional rice dish in a local restaurant.
This experience can be combined with others in the same area and could also include a river boat ride.
