The botanical watercolour workshop was well organised with Rita as an excellent “conductor”, advising - discretely - where needed without overwhelming. The place itself was great where you could be at peace with the motivated participants. The organisers did a great effort in preparing all this and absolutely not to forget the outstanding lunch. Some advice: better signposts should be useful and I missed a good Portuguese coffee. All in all a workshop to be recommended.

The atmosphere at Figs on the Funcho is very relaxed and welcoming, which sets the scene for a thoroughly delightful cookery workshop. Cheryl and Graham are wonderful hosts and their passion for good food and great hospitality is evident throughout the event. I enjoyed learning how to cook the dishes on our menu and also the social side of the event. I was in company with a lovely group of ladies and we paired up to make the different dishes. The food itself was delicious, we were all very pleased with our efforts! Eating our brunch in the beautiful setting outside, overlooking wonderful scenery, was a treat in itself. Overall, it was a really fun experience and I’m looking forward to trying out the recipes myself at home. Thank you Cheryl and Graham for a great brunch!

The cookery course was great fun and we learned a great deal, had fantastic food (and wine!) and met some lovely people. The location was very relaxing and scenic. Highly recommended.

A lovely day out, with the experience to enjoy preparing and cooking some new food dishes, with other ‘foodies’ ! Graham & Cheryl are excellent hosts with a relax and welcoming atmosphere. Great location ‘out in the wilds’ of the beautiful Algarve ! I Can recommend it to any of you looking for ‘something different to enjoy’ 😎
